A Lesson in Community

Queen’s Park has always been a community focussed club – and a new initiative launched with local schools drives the lesson home.

Scotland’s oldest club has announced its Tickets for Schools initiative – committing up to 50 tickets for a local primary school to attend each game at the club’s temporary home at Firhill.

The launch event took place at Mount Florida Primary school, and they will be attending our our fixture on 24th October.

In addition to the tickets, the Club will also provide a free bus to take the kids to and from each home match, and each child attending will also get a free Queen’s Park t-shirt.

A first team player will present the tickets to each school in advance of the game and will also take part in a Q and A and some fun football activity.

Head of Commercial Kieran Koszary said: “We are looking to do two things – to work with the local community and also to create fans of the future. We are also conscious that as a club we are playing away from our normal “home” so this allows us to keep in touch with our local community.

“We hope this is an initiative lots of local schools will want to take part in, and we look forward to welcoming them to Queen’s Park. It will all be covered on the club’s social media platforms and we will ensure the kids have a day to remember.”

Caroline Gibson, Head Teacher from Mount Florida Primary said: ‘We are very excited to have the opportunity to work with Queen’s Park Football Club on their Tickets for Schools Scheme and our children and families are looking forward to attending the game. We hope this will lead to further opportunities for the school and nursery and the football club to work together in partnership”.

The Club would also like to thank McDades Coaches and our other partners who have supported the club with this venture.

Andy McDade said: “McDade’s Coaches are delighted to work with Queens Park FC and our local schools to provide this exciting opportunity to all the children who are participating. It combines two passions of our owners namely, Scottish football and providing opportunities to local kids”.

Queen’s Park are playing home matches at Partick Thistle’s Firhill Stadium while their own Lesser Hampden is undergoing major upgrading construction works.
