Fan's Generosity to Help Young Disabled Supporters

Exiled fan Seamus offers his place to help others

7 June 2018

We are always overwhelmed by the generosity of our supporters and this week we received a fantastic email from long time fan Seamus McArdle.

Seamus is an exiled supporter who buys a season ticket every year despite only attending occasionally these days. Seamus uses a wheelchair and wrote to ask if we could help him use his season ticket to benefit others this year:

“I wonder if you could help” he wrote. “I've purchased my season ticket and one for my companion again for the coming season. I’m exiled to the far north of Scotland (but I’m not the ‘Highland Yellow’ that’s always contacting Radio Oxford!) and that means I will only be able to get down for a maximum of three games (plus the play-offs and Wemberleeee) and don't like the thought of my space going unoccupied.

“I'd like to donate my tickets to a youngster and carer for those games that I am unable to attend. Do you know of any school that takes disabled children who would want to go to games?”

We would like to thank Seamus for his kind thoughts and would like to extend this offer to allow as many disabled young fans as possible to come and enjoy a game for free.

How it works:

  • At every home league game we are offering one wheelchair space and one for a carer.
  • Any disabled fans under the age of 18 can take advantage of this offer, but to allow as many people as possible to enjoy this opportunity it will be limited to one game per fan/carer.
  • The ticket needs to be pre-booked at least 48 hours before the game and will be available to collect from club reception
  • To book just email Supporter Liaison officer Kath Faulkner: kfaulkner@oufc.co.uk

Oxford United would like to thank Seamus for his help and support to make this possible.
