Glasgow City & Partick Thistle announce joint initiative to grow the women's game for Petershill Derby matches

Glasgow City and Partick Thistle are both delighted to jointly announce an initiative to help grow the women’s game in Scotland.

 

#GrowingTheGame will see season ticket holders of Glasgow City and Partick Thistle, along with kids gain free entry for both meetings between the sides in the split, regardless of the home team.

 

City host the first Petershill Park derby meeting between the sides on Wednesday 17th of April with Thistle the home team in the penultimate game of the season on Wednesday 15th of May.

 

Glasgow City Commercial Manager & Co-Founder Carol Anne Stewart on the initiative:

"The top six of the SWPL is one of the most competitive in Europe on the pitch. Off the pitch we are delighted to collaborate with Partick Thistle for our forthcoming matches by allowing both sets of season ticket holders and all youths free entry to both games. 

“Hopefully the matches will be competitive and exciting for a bumper crowd, and the collaboration has a positive impact on the growth of our game."

 

Partick Thistle Women's FC CEO Caroline Mackie said:

 "We all want our own clubs to grow but more importantly we have a duty to ensure that the women's game flourishes from grassroots up. We look forward to helping to encourage this alongside Glasgow City with this initiative.

“We hope to see both sets of fans at Petershill Park cheering on their teams, for what will be two exciting games."

 

Both matches between the sides so far this season have been entertaining spectacles for spectators and with an exciting run in to the season ahead, the remaining two games should be no different.
