Play on the Pitch a big hit

27 February 2014

Extra date added as demand so high to play at the Meadow

Due to the fantastic response we’ve had to our ‘Play on the Pitch’ scheme, announced earlier this month, we have decided to add another day to the schedule.

Play on the Pitch gives local teams, businesses, or perhaps a group of friends, the chance to play on the hallowed turf here at the Greenhous Meadow.

Participants will prepare for the game in the same dressing rooms that your Town heroes use every other Saturday before taking to the pitch in full Shrewsbury Town kit.

Matches will last 60 minutes with FA qualified match officials in charge while there will then be a chance to enjoy post-match refreshments in the bar and receive a souvenir team photo as a reminder of your special day. 

“Play on the Pitch is always extremely popular whenever we stage it, but this year interest has been even greater, which is fantastic," said Andrew Tretton, commercial sales executive at the Greenhous Meadow. 

"We’ve added this extra day to help us accommodate as many requests as we can, and to keep any disappointed teams that are missing out to a minimum”.

“Demand has never been higher so if you are interested then please get in touch with me here at the football club as soon as you possibly can.” 

The dates and kick-off times, including the new additional day, are as follows: 

Friday, May 9: 10am, 1pm, 4pm and 7pm kick-offs

Saturday,May 10: 10am, 1pm, 4pm and 7pm kick-offs

Sunday, May 11: 10am, 1pm, 4pm and 7pm kick-offs

Sunday, May 18: 10am, 1pm, 4pm and 7pm kick-offs

The price is £550 per squad (maximum of 16 players).
