Tranmere Rovers Football Club’s Community Tickets scheme has officially been renamed in honour of Nate Gidman, a five-year old supporter who sadly passed away earlier this season following a battle with brain cancer.
The scheme will now be known as Nate’s Tickets and will continue to provide a football experience through organised charities and groups to families who would otherwise not have the opportunity due to financial or other circumstances. Since launching the scheme seven years ago we are proud to have welcomed 23,500 people to Prenton Park.
Nate’s visit to Prenton Park prior to Christmas last year showed the incredible impact football can have in creating positive memories for families, even in the most difficult of times.
The Club has remained in regular contact with Nate’s parents, Phil and Nicola, and are honoured that they have agreed for the ticket scheme to take Nate’s name.
We are looking for donations towards to scheme in order to allow as many families and children to attend games in the new 2023/24 campaign. A donation of £25 would mean a local organisation can bring four children and £40 would see a family of six enjoying live football when they wouldn’t normally be able to. Our aim is to raise £20,000 which will be used to pay for 105 child and accompanying adult match tickets per home game. For every ticket that is paid for by fans, the Club has kindly agreed to match the number of tickets up to 105 per home game, totalling 4830 over the season.
