AFCCT and CLAN benefit from Aberdeen For All initiative



Earlier this year we announced that several local Aberdeen companies had generously chosen to lend their support to the unique Aberdeen For All scheme, which provides season tickets to those most deserving in our local community.

Thanks to the support of our key sponsors, partners, a significant donation from the AFC board and fantastic backing from the Red Army over 500 season tickets have been issued for the 2018/19 campaign.

Last week we were delighted to facilitate the hand over of season tickets to two charities, CLAN and AFCs partner charity Aberdeen FC Community Trust (AFCCT) who have been nominated by one of our Aberdeen For All supporters, Tendeka.

Gillian King, Tendeka’s VP – Europe, Africa, Russia & CIS, said: “We are proud to be supporting Aberdeen FC Community Trust and CLAN as part of Aberdeen Football Club’s Aberdeen For All initiative, whereby supporting those in our local community in a way which encourages social inclusion. Attending a home football game is about more than the sport, but about being around people and enjoying a few hours of getting out the house. Both charities help so many lives deeply affected by very different circumstances and being able to support via this initiative means a great deal to us.”

Supporters can donate online at afc.co.uk/eTickets and selecting the #AberdeenForAll tab or by calling the Pittodrie Ticket Office on 01224 63 1903.

If your business is interested in supporting this initiative, please contact the AFC Commercial team via email commercial@afc.co.uk
