Blades launch Schools United Initiative

6 February 2019

Sponsored by

Sheffield United have launched its Schools United Initiative, providing families within Sheffield and the surrounding areas access to a series of discounted tickets along with information about the club's great matchday family activities.

Working closely with the Sheffield United Community Foundation, the club was able to deliver 40,000 Schools United booklets to Sheffield region junior schools. The club's Families and Juniors co-ordinator, Jon Helliwell, said: "The Schools United Initiative for us is another way to communicate to families the fantastic activities we have on offer every matchday.

"We've worked hard this season to make our matchdays even more entertaining and engaging, especially for our young Blades, we hope that the discounted tickets available to families over some of our coming games will make coming to watch Sheffield United an even more affordable and enjoyable day out."

For one of our Schools United booklets, contact your child's school for details. If you are a school and would like to participate in the programme please contact
