Falkirk fans save £90,000 in refunds
Supporters were offered the chance to claim back cash paid in advance for four home matches that did not go ahead at the end of last season due to the coronavirus closedown of Scottish football.
The Bairns have seen around two percent take up the refund option, but many pledged to leave the money with the club to see it through an uncertain summer.
The potential £90,000 liability has resulted in less than £4000 being returned.
Commercial director Kieran Koszary thanked fans on the club website. He said: “The club are extremely grateful to our supporters, both to those who exercised their right to a refund and those who did not.
“The many messages we received were uplifting and hugely appreciated by everyone at the club. On behalf of everyone at Falkirk FC can I thank you for your support, not only in respect of season ticket refunds but also for your backing of other initiatives such as our popular 50/50 draws and virtual sponsorship packages.
“Your unwavering support deserves to be rewarded and you have our promise that we will work hard every day to deliver this.”
As well as saving the club close to £90,000 fans have also put in more than £15,000 to club coffers via virtual 50-50 draws over the past ten weeks during the Watch It Again Weekend with The Falkirk Herald and Falkirk TV.
