To address the cost of living crisis, Sale Sharks partnered with Blue Light Card and club partner Printerland. Blue Light Card offers free and discounted tickets for frontline emergency services workers.
Members of emergency services, the military, social care and NHS workers can vote for 50 free tickets for each shark home game donated by Altrincham-based Printerland.
All other match tickets are available at a 25% discount with the Blue Light Card, the UK’s largest discount service for emergency services, NHS, social care workers and the military.
Claire Butters, Sales and Marketing Director of Sale Sharks, said:
“We want to be more than just a rugby club, so at a time when we all know the cost of living is rising all the time, this is a way to give back and appreciate our frontline heroes. It is a way to convey
“Printerland has been a great partner to Sale Sharks over the years and has supported a lot of the work we have done to introduce inclusion and the game to new audiences.
“We are so grateful to them for providing us with free tickets and we hope to see as many frontline workers as possible come to AJ Bell Stadium for the big Premiership match.”
Thanks to Printerland, emergency workers have access to free tickets to Leicester Tigers and Ulster Rugby in December, as well as Saturday’s Champions Cup game against Toulouse.
Discounted tickets for Blue Light cardholders will continue to be available for the Gallagher Premiership match against Bath on Friday 27th January.
