Ramsgate FC Becomes Free4NHS

Amazing gesture from Ramsgate Football Club, which is inviting clubs across Kent to join.

Ramsgate Football Club has announced it will be offering free entry to those working in the NHS for the entirety of the 2020/21 Isthmian South East season by launching the #FREE4NHS Campaign. 

The #FREE4NHS is the club’s way of showing its gratitude to the health service, not only their work during COVID-19 but since its inception in 1948.   

The club hopes that people will join it as they say thank you for the hard work carried out by those on the frontline of the battle with COVID-19 and all their efforts prior and in the future.  

Ramsgate FC is encouraging as many clubs as possible to join the campaign, whether that is giving away 50 tickets a week, 100 tickets a week or unlimited free entry to those working for The National Health Service.  

Already, Cray Wanderers have joined the campaign and are offering the same to NHS workers.

"It's fantastic to be able to give something back," said Chairman James Lawson as The Rams launched the campaign.  

"Many of us have family members and friends working in the NHS and the last few months have reminded us all of the selfless sacrifices they make and the hard work they put in for the benefit of others. 

"As a club we feel that offering free matchday tickets is the least we can do." 

Ramsgate is currently operating at a vastly reduced capacity as a result of the on-going pandemic. Tickets are likely to be sold out for most fixtures so it is strongly recommended to pre-book your tickets online, remaining tickets will always be made available on matchday at the turnstile. 

Tickets for Ashford United can be booked via the club’s website here

In order to obtain free entry an NHS ID card must be presented at the turnstiles.
