Cold weather hospitality at Glebe

The COMMITTEE at Brechin City has revealed a new initiative to enhance supporters’ matchday experience during the winter months.

Speaking on behalf of the club, committee member Grant Hood said: “In response to requests, we are now in a position to offer a hospitality package to cater for those who want to make use of our 1983 Hospitality Lounge specifically at half-time.

“Many supporters have said they don’t necessarily want a ‘full-on’ day at the Glebe on every visit, but would really like the opportunity for a half-time heat-up with hot food and refreshments during the cold winter months.”

The Club is now offering a “cold weather hospitality package” which allows supporters half-time access to The 1983 Hospitality Lounge where they can enjoy hot food, as well as tea or coffee. Day guests using this option can take advantage of a heated environment to discuss the first half action and catch-up on TV coverage of the other football action.

Grant added: “Access to The 1983 Lounge should ideally be prearranged to help with catering. Many supporters are well aware of the investment that the club made in a pitch protection system, so this in turn should ensure that there is a greater likelihood that winter matches will go ahead on the originally scheduled date. Maybe we’re still a bit away from summer football in Scotland, but hopefully our supporters will recognise that this is another example of the management committee acting positively on suggestions made to the club.”

Day passes can be arranged by contacting the Commercial Line on 07817 910548, at a cost of £5, and is available to season ticket holders and occasional supporters. Enquiries can also be e-mailed to Rather than a game-by-game basis, supporters can upgrade to this new half-time lounge access for the remainder of the season for £60.

Grant concluded: “Supporters can enquire about availability on matchday by speaking to Martin Smith or myself at the hospitality entrance, which is now part of the Trinity Road turnstiles.”
