An update for Airdrieonians supporters in relation to our plans to move out of lockdown in preparation for season 2020/21.
The staff at the stadium will return to work on a part-time basis on Monday August 3 with a view to preparing and gradually reopening the stadium facility. We will launch player shirt sponsorship for the coming season on that date to allow Airdrie fans to sponsor their favourite players for the coming season.
The squad will report for pre-season training on Saturday August 15. The club will arrange closed door pre-season friendlies in September in preparation for the first Betfred Cup match on Tuesday October 6 and the first SPFL League One match on Saturday October 17.
We will launch season tickets for season 2020/21 in August once we have had our fixture scheduled confirmed by the SPFL. Airdrie Community Trust will again fund season tickets for children under 16 which will allow young supporters to see our exciting new team for free next season. An exact date for season tickets will be confirmed upon the release of our fixtures.
The club also has an agreement to implement the new Pixellot technology system at the stadium for the start of the new season. This will also allow the club to broadcast live matches next season to subscribers in the event that crowd restrictions remain in place or to those fans who feel uncomfortable in social spaces with other people due to issues related to COVID-19. The new system will also provide professional coaching solutions to Ian Murray and his staff as well as teams in the local community who will use our facility in future.
There has been a lot of work going on behind-the-scenes to plan for the coming season and ensure that our stadium is ready to meet the challenges that COVID-19 has inflicted upon us. Airdrie supporters can be assured that everyone involved at the club is working tirelessly to ensure that season 2020/21 is a safe and successful one.
As always, we appreciate your support.
