Tranmere Rovers to host memorial game in memory of those who we have lost

12 December 2022

Tranmere Rovers Football Club will dedicate a home first team fixture as a memorial match for supporters who have passed away since 1st January 2022. 

For the 2022/23 campaign, the fixture will be Saturday 7th January against Sutton United.

We are asking the SWA to send their remembrance messages and photographs for any friends or loved ones they have lost since January 2022, and we will put together a special memorial matchday programme which will be produced for the game.  These can be e-mailed to slo@tranmererovers.co.uk or sent to the Club marked for the attention of Tony Coombes.  Please note, can you only submit one good quality photograph and between 20-70 words. 

The deadline for this is Tuesday 27th December. 

We will also hold a short memorial service prior to kick off on the designated day. Further details will be provided in due course.

Vice Chair, Nicola Palios, said: “Last year we held our first memorial game, to remember the members of the SWA who had sadly passed away during the 2 years of the Covid pandemic.”

“We know from feedback that the opportunity for fans and families together to remember and pay their respects to those we have lost was welcomed and so it will become an annual event.”

“We hope it will bring a crumb of comfort to those who grieve that their loved ones are not forgotten and that they will forever be members of the SWA. May they rest in peace.”
