News from Barrow ahead of our pre-season game up there

​BARROW Raiders have issued the following statement regarding methods of ticket purchase for our pre-season warm-up game at Craven Park on Sunday, January 5, kick-off 2pm.

Barrow say:

“As part of our club’s ongoing improvement strategy we are changing the way that home fixture admission tickets are purchased.

“With effect from the first game of the 2020 playing season, match-day admission tickets will be available to purchase in the following ways:

“1: Online at www.barrowevents.co.uk<www.barrowevents.co.uk>. Tickets can either be printed at home or downloaded on to a mobile device. On arrival at the stadium, the ticket or the device will be scanned and validated at the designated admission gate(s) on Duke Street, allowing entry to the ground.

“2: From the ticket office at the Duke Street entrance on match days only from 1pm. Payment by cash, card or mobile device. Tickets purchased this way will also be scanned and validated at the designated admission gate(s) but it will be necessary to exit the ticket office and re-enter the stadium through the admission gate(s).

“This system is designed to improve the overall spectator experience as well as to help the club’s operation to run efficiently. Online purchase is the preferred option but if this is not possible for some fans they should please make sure they get to the ground early, well in advance of kick-off time to avoid unnecessary queuing.”

OUR Betfred Championship clash at Whitehaven on Sunday, February 16 — our third league game of the season — has been switched from an afternoon match to an evening kick-off for purposes of streaming by OuRLeague.

The head-to-head of the two clubs who were promoted this time from Betfred League 1 will now kick-off at 6.15pm.

Our home game against York City Knights at Bower Fold on Sunday, March 29 (3pm kick off) will also be screened by OuRLeague.

A full list of OuRLeague match coverage for the first few weeks of the season will be published in the New Year.



Club Cash Lottery

In challenging times for businesses we are again stressing our urgent need for more financial support via the Club Cash lottery from both existing and new members.

With door-to-door collections temporarily abandoned, some have paid up front to cover a few weeks; moved to direct debit; or completed a bank transfer but the overall result has seen a drop in lottery income of nearly 50 per cent.

This trend is hitting all clubs and organisations and we have had to temporarily modify the weekly prize structure in line with the number of people taking part.

We still have a weekly first prize of £1,000 and other prizes of £100, £50 and £25 plus some £10 consolation prizes and we urgently and seriously need people to help us on this.

One way is to download a direct debit form here and follow the instructions.
