View Full Version : School tickets package...?

09-02-2006, 05:56 PM
I coach a primary schools football team here in Streatham for the top two years (5 & 6). As the season is drawing to a close, im looking to organise a trip to a football game with the year 6's as ofcourse their leaving the school soon. There's about 14 of them and it'd be a good last thing for them to do all togeather.
So I've had a look around at some official sites of the local premiership teams and ofcourse Palace. It'd be more of an occassion to take them to a big game as ofcourse none of them support Palace :( but if I cant then a Palace match would be good anyway. There isnt anything on any of the sites about school packages or group discounts etc. Do we hand out free tickets to schools or clubs?
Im planning to email and then ring Charlon, Fulham, Palace and Chelski to see if I can get a deal. I also looked into England under-21 matches but nothing.

So has anyone got any ideas/previous experience/contacts that might help me out the best way of doing this?

Fulham send out "cheap" ticket offers to club coaches in our league (Tandridge). It's about 10 for adults and 5 for kids. Palace have been known to do the same thing apparently.
