Altrincham FC repeat £5 offer as they dedicate Saturday’s game to fight against homophobia

Altrincham FC has dedicated this weekend’s league fixture to Football vs Homophobia’s month of action.

It’s hoped the game against Sutton Coldfield will highlight the club’s commitment to be inclusive, welcoming and providing a safe environment for all.

The occasion also provides an opportunity to encourage local United and City fans to once again come along, enjoy the football and support the day. Admission is £5.00 with a valid MUFC/MCFC season ticket or membership card.

Huddersfield v Manchester United (FA Cup 5th round) will be shown on the big screen in the Community Sports Hall following the Alty v Sutton Coldfield game.

Chairman Grahame Rowley said: “We’re delighted to support this great campaign. We’re always keen to promote a ‘football for all’ message which we believe is highlighted in our community work as well as on matchday.”

Jordan Tyms, Inclusion and Diversity co-ordinator for Altrincham FC, added: “It’s great that the club is supporting FvH, one of many projects we have planned as part of our ongoing commitment to Inclusion and ensuring football is accessible to all.”

Alty are currently nine points clear at the top of the Evo-Stik Premier Division and on track for a return to National League football.
