Event | Kit launch and Q&A event

Blyth Spartans AFC, in association with the Supporters Club, is hosting a kit launch and Q&A evening on Friday, July 16th.  

Taking place at our social club, the event will give supporters the opportunity to purchase the new 2021/22 shirts, sponsored by CEFO Group, and put forward questions to first-team manager Michael Nelson, vice captain JJ O’Donnell and left-back Michael Liddle.

Unfortunately, this will be limited to 60 people after the government extended Covid-19 restrictions. Another date was explored but could sadly not be arranged due to various circumstances.  

Tickets for the event cost £2, where you will be automatically entered into a raffle – with the prize being a replica 21/22 shirt.  

These can be bought in groups of six or as individuals. Those purchasing tickets alone will be put together to make up tables of six. 

Due to social distancing guidelines, you will be required to sit at your allocated table. A face covering MUST be worn when walking around the social club.  

A table service will be in operation for drinks and when selling the new shirts. Card and cash payments are accepted. 

Adults shirts are priced at £40, with children shirts at £35. The fittings are identical to last seasons, so please bear that in mind when purchasing.  

The club store will then open its door on Saturday, July 17th between 10am and 12pm to enable supporters to purchase a kit before our home friendly with Middlesbrough U23s.

Again, social distancing rules will apply and only one person/family bubble will be allowed in the shop at any one time, and face coverings must be worn.

The shop will also be open prior to kick off. Replica kits will also be available on the online shop, keep an eye on our various social media channels for further information.

The doors for the kit and Q&A event will open at 7pm with the latter taking place first before leading into the kit launch.  

We ask supporters who have questions for Michael and the players to email media@blythspartans.com by Thursday, July 15th by 5pm. Your name can remain anonymous if preferred.  

HOW DO I PURCHASE A TICKET FOR THE EVENT? 

Supporters can purchase tickets from our club store on Saturday, July 3rd, between 11am and 1pm.  

Alternatively, supporters unable to make it to Croft Park on Saturday can email bsafc_store@outlook.com to reserve their space. Please do not e-mail prior to 11am on Saturday July 3rd and put Kit Launch as the subject of your mail. If successful you will receive a reply with your table number and instructions on how to pay and collect your ticket. 

The club store will then re-open on Monday, July 5th to sell any leftover tickets between 7pm and 8:30pm, which will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.  

*Replica shirt sales dependant on delivery from Italy. If for any reason there is a delay we will inform supporters as soon as possible.
