Kilwinning Rangers are delighted to be a part of The National Lottery Football Weekends. If you are a National Lottery player you will be able to come and watch our home match against Pollok on Saturday 19th of March with a friend and get one of the tickets for free. As fans, you know full well how damaging the pandemic has been to clubs like ours. With a halt in the football calendar and no gate revenue there were serious fears about the future of many clubs. Thankfully National Lottery players stepped in to protect many local football clubs, providing £12.5million of support to clubs in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. As thanks for the essential support, 231 clubs in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are now taking part in The National Lottery Football Weekends. Each club will, for one home fixture in March or April, run a special ‘Buy One Get One Free’ ticket offer for National Lottery players to take someone –potentially for the very first time –to a game.

Club Chairman Colin Boyd said: “National Lottery players play a vital role in supporting our national game, but especially at non-league and grassroots level. The Buffs prides itself on being a club that is closely connected with the local community, and it is thanks to the emergency funding, that ensured that clubs like ours could survive, and we are able to continue delivering the projects like The Claire Hub that make a massive difference to our fans and the wider community. We look forward to welcoming as many fans as possible to our game with Pollok on Saturday 19th of March. We’ve done some great things since our move to the facilities here at Buffs Park so why not take the opportunity to come down and see it for yourself.”

To claim your free ticket bring your national lottery ticket on the day and show at the gate to get your friend or family member in for free. To find out more about The National Lottery Football Weekend visit and conditions app
