New Tolka Park Family Zone Up-And-Running

Posted on

The New Family Zone at Tolka Park having been launched at the Cobh Ramblers game, we would interested to hear any feedback from those who were here on the night (tofamilyzone@shelbournefc.ieplease) . We would love to see you – and your friends – here for the upcoming games against Cabinteely 18th and 21st, and again at the game with Drogheda United on Sat 26th (this one has a 7pm start)

For those of you who were not at that game, you may have heard that we had been busy during the close season working on our Family Zone concept which was open for the first time at the match against Cobh Ramblers on March 4th.

Please give the Family Zone your support and spread the word. We want to see as many families and young supporters coming to Tolka Park and to give them the best possible experience. In addition to the Family Zone, we have introduced a scheme where all Shelbourne players – boys and girls – will be given a free season ticket to acknowledge the important contribution that they make to our club.

Pre-match Activities

Starting 45 minutes before kick-off in the small function room (middle of the main stand), face-painting, puzzles and other activities will entertain our young supporters. Early-comers will also have the opportunity to have a photo taken in the dug-outs and players from both the Men’s and Women’s National League sides will call in to say hello.

Candy Hamper prize

Our friends at the Candy Cloud in Dublin Airport have kindly provided a fantastic hamper of treats (photo above) for each home game. One lucky young supporter will be presented with this prize on the pitch at half time

Family Seating

Part of Section B in the main stand has been designated as Family Seating. This area will be non-smoking and extra stewarding will be provided. Swearing and abusive language or behaviour will not be tolerated in the Family Seating area. New signage indicates the area clearly.

Snack Packs

Some great value kids’ snack packs will be available for €2.50 from the shop.
