A number of community football project, groups and programmes will benefit from a special ticket initiative during the latest round of fixtures in the Bristol Street Motors Trophy, which coincides with the English Football League’s (EFL) annual Week of Action.
From November 6-10, the EFL’s Week of Action sees all 72 member Clubs unite to highlight the impact they have on their communities as a collective.
All 72 clubs – including the 48 League One and League Two clubs competing in the Bristol Street Motors Trophy – support hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people all year round, with the demand continuing to rise from challenges including the current cost of living crisis.
As a result of the new partnership between Bristol Street Motors and the EFL announced last week, community groups involved with eight clubs will receive ten tickets that will provide the chance to attend each of the following Bristol Street Motors Trophy games this week in support of the home team.
- Lincoln City v Notts County
- Mansfield Town v Everton U21s
- Forest Green Rovers v Brighton & Hove Albion U21s
- AFC Wimbledon v Crystal Palace U21s
- Cambridge United v Tottenham Hotspur U21s
- Leyton Orient v Portsmouth
- Oxford United v Chelsea U21s
- Cheltenham Town v West Ham U21s
The EFL’s most recent community impact report showed that more than 840,000 participants have engaged in EFL Club community in recent seasons, with clubs delivering over £865m worth of social value to towns and cities.
All eight matches kick off this evening (Tuesday) at 7pm with Lincoln City, Forest Green Rovers, Leyton Orient and Oxford United all hoping to secure a place in the Round of 32 stage.
