Go to your local shop, the petrol station or even the supermarket and you can buy a Freddo bar for 20p. But for half the price of the kid’s chocolate bar you can watch Hamilton Accies take on Inverness Caledonian Thistle this weekend.
In what must be the first of its kind, Hamilton Accies have announced that both home and away fans attending New Douglas Park on Saturday 24th January will be able to watch the game for a mere 10p as Accies are ditching their usual ticket prices to pay tribute to both Alex Neil, who left for Norwich City, and Frankie McAvoy who will be an Academical for the last time on Saturday.
In a statement via the official website, Vice President Ronnie Macdonald, said: “Both he and Alex Neil have given us wonderful service in their time at the Club, both of them served us for 10 years, and of course Alex wore the number 10 jersey with distinction
“As a mark of the esteem we hold them in, we have designated Saturday’s game as a tribute to these significant 10’s and will make the admission charge for all spectators, home or away, just 10p.
“We look forward to welcoming all our loyal supporters, and perhaps some new ones, to send Frankie, (and Alex), off with the acclaim they deserve.”
This season, both Inverness Caley Thistle and Albion Rovers, announced games where you can pay what you want to gain entry to games. But Accies 10p initiative must be a first?
