SWF work with Falkirk Foundation to attract local youngsters to cup semi-finals


Scottish Women’s Football are joining forces with Falkirk Community Foundation to attract local youngsters to the Biffa Scottish Women’s Cup semi-final which is to be held at Falkirk Stadium.  The semi-finals will be played on 1st May and will see Hearts Women face Celtic Women and Partick Thistle play Glasgow City.  To help attract a strong local crowd, SWF have gifted 150 semi-final tickets to distribute to local football clubs around the area.

Commenting, SWF CEO Aileen Campbell said:

“As the popularity of women’s football continues to rise, we want to make sure that young aspiring local footballers get the chance to come and see some top-class women’s football right here on their doorstep.  That is why we have chosen to give tickets to the Falkirk Foundation to distribute around local clubs and to give them the opportunity to enjoy the games.

“With less than a fortnight to go to the semi-final, we are also encouraging as many people across Falkirk to come along and enjoy this cup experience.  Tickets are £5 for adults and enables access to both games – great value to see four great SWPL 1 sides battle it out for a place at the cup finals later in May.”

CEO of the Falkirk Foundation Derek Allison said:

“We are delighted to welcome the Scottish Women’s Cup semi-finals here to Falkirk and to be able to ensure that as many young people as possible can get along to the game.  It is a privilege to serve the community of Falkirk and to use the power of football to bring about positive change.  We are pleased to work with SWF to ensure that youngsters will get the chance to see inspiring role models and continue to do our bit to help grow the game in our part of Scotland.”
