With excitement building ahead of the fan-driven Dark Blue Day at Tynecastle on Saturday the 19th of April, Ross County have come up with a way of giving fans at their home game against Kilmarnock on Saturday the 26th of April a taste of the away day experience whilst also thanking those supporters who have made the journey down to Hearts to back the team. In the newest Hospitality Lounge at the Stadium, there will be a one off hospitality package on offer which aims to give something uniquely tailored towards the supporters who love the crack of an away day or who can’t travel but want a taste of what they’re like.
A maximum of 45 fans will enjoy the best view of the Stadium as they enjoy a 2 course running buffet and pay bar facility, and it’s up to them how much they pay for it! Whilst the package which includes team-lines and programme as well as seating in the West Stand would normally cost £60 per person, the Club will be dropping the price for fans who have followed the team home or away this season as well as those willing to wear their colours with pride – letting them earn up to 25% off the price. Season Ticket Holders will get £5 off, whilst anyone who can show their match ticket from the trip to Hearts the week before will get a further £5 off and finally anyone who turns up wearing the Club’s home shirt will get a further £5 off – these discounts can be mixed and matched for a saving of up to £15 per person.
The Club will be sponsoring the first drink for all fans in the Lounge, and that’s partly for a very selfish reason as the Club’s Commercial Manager Lorna Ross explained,
“We feel this is very much a win-win for both the club and the fans. I try to get to as many away games as I can and you always get a fantastic atmosphere from the County fans which I know the players really appreciate. We thought this was a way partly to say thank you to them for their efforts and partly to try and encourage them to bring a bit of that atmosphere to the game against Kilmarnock – so hopefully sponsoring the first drink will help lubricate their vocal chords! It’ll also be a wee bit different to the normal package as in addition to being able to watch the teams warm up from the comfort of the lounge, we’ll also be showing some exclusive footage of the team in action and having a bit of fun with the fans so it promises to be a great day.”
With places limited, fans interested in being part of this unique day should contact Lorna on 01349 860860 or e-mail email@example.com to book or for more information.
