Shrewsbury Town will be hosting a Meet The Players event at the Montgomery Waters Meadow on Saturday 20th July.
The event starts at 1pm and gives supporters the chance to come down to the stadium and meet Sam and the players.
Shrewsbury Town in the Community will be running a KidsZone at the Football Hub with events and activities for the kids. The supporters groups will be represented to allow supporters to sign up for the 2019/20 season.
The Sovereign Suite bar will be open for drinks and there will be teas, coffees and light refreshments available.
It will be an open stadium giving the chance for supporters to look around the new dressing rooms, tunnel area, boardroom and behind the scenes places they don’t normally get to see.
The clubshop will be open to allow supporters to get the new Admiral shirts and training wear. The ticket office will be open as well with the Aston Villa, Dundee United and Portsmouth matches on sale, as well as the opportunity for supporters to pick up their season tickets, fan cards and parking passes. Both will close at 2:30pm on the Saturday.
Smithy’s Bar at the Football Hub will also be open from 2pm.
Sam and the first team squad will be in the Sovereign Lounge from 2pm to meet supporters, sign autographs and pose for photographs.
Shrewsbury Town CEO Brian Caldwell is pleased to be able to confirm this season’s event.
“When I first came here this is something that was raised through the Supporters Parliament and the feedback is that supporters wanted an Open Day”, said Brian.
“That is something I am 100% for but unfortunately last year we weren’t able to fit a date into the diary because of the way the dates worked.
“With the training schedule you would look at it and say a Sunday is ideal but with the players Sunday maybe their only day off to see their families.
“The feedback from the Supporters Parliament is that supporters felt that it would be worth trying an Open Day but this time not to coincide it with a game like we have done before.
“Supporters will get the chance to meet the players but we are also talking with Jamie about what events Community can put on that day for families.
“We are also looking to open the doors so supporters can look behind the scenes at the new dressing room and other areas of the ground they don’t normally get to see.
“There will also be representation from all the supporters groups so that they get the chance to talk to the fans and showcase what they do.”
