Supporters will be able to enjoy the return of football in style after a pre-season hospitality package was launched by South Shields FC.

For the reduced pre-season rate of £30, guests will be able to enjoy a delicious two-course meal and take part in a question and answer session with players and management ahead of the game. There will also be a complimentary drink on arrival and access to exclusive drinks packages and after-dinner extras.

Bookings are now open for the friendly with Stockton Town on Saturday, July 17, which will be the first match held at 1st Cloud Arena in 261 days. Fans are advised that, because of the current coronavirus restrictions, those in the hospitality section are the only match-goers who will be able to consume food at the ground on the day of the Stockton match.

Those who have already purchased tickets for the Stockton match who would like to upgrade to a hospitality package will have the cost of their ticket reduced from the hospitality price.

Anyone looking to book is asked to send an email to louise.hutchinson@southshieldsfc.co.uk at the earliest convenience.
