Gillingham FC needs a ‘12th man’!

9 September 2015

Available space for popular new package this Saturday

After an outstanding start to the season, fans have been enjoying performances on the pitch and new packages off of it!

Gillingham FC’s ’12th man’ package offers fans a once in a life time opportunity to experience life as a first team professional footballer at MEMS Priestfield Stadium.

The club has been able to welcome three fantastic guests to enjoy our package so far this season and there’s currently space available for a fan to be our ‘12th man’ for Gillingham’s upcoming fixture against Blackpool FC.

For £250+VAT, Gillingham FC offers fans the ultimate experience. Our ‘12th man’ enjoys all the perks our first team do. Take a tour around the stadium, behind the scenes where our first team train, eat, live and breathe GFC!

Our ‘12th man’ features in the match day programme and on our squad list for the fixture, besides that we’re also able to offer special match day tannoy announcements to celebrate your day with us.

As part of the package, our ‘12th man’ is personally handed their customised Gillingham FC first team shirt by manager Justin Edinburgh in his office before the game.

Our ‘12th man’ and guest can then enjoy watching the action unfold in the best seats in the house in our executive seating area within The Medway Stand.

The package has already proved extremely popular with guests.

Clare Lawrence who treated her partner Louis to the package to celebrate his 30th birthday said: “Saturday was fantastic, a real once in a lifetime experience for a true gills fan. I cannot thank you enough for how well you looked after us and the result was the icing on the cake.”

“It was a birthday Louis and I won't forget and I would highly recommend the package. Also all the staff were incredibly friendly and made a real fuss of Louis being the 12th man which was lovely.”

Susanna Brookes brought her son to celebrate his new job and was equally delighted with the experience: “I would like to thank the Gills Staff that made Saturday such a special day for Luke, he loved the experience and I’m sure if he could he would do it every Saturday.”

“He couldn’t stop talking about it and the fact that everyone was so nice to both Luke and his friend Harry made the whole experience more special. Both my husband and I really appreciate the fact that Gillingham FC have made it possible for him to have a wonderful experience that I’m sure he will never forget.”

Last Saturday, young season ticket holder Billy celebrated his 13th birthday with Justin and the team. His Dad could not have been happier with the unique birthday present: “Not only did Billy enjoy himself but we all had a fantastic day due to the fact that due to your hard work we felt included in his big day as well.”

“Special thank you to Justin Edinburgh for accommodating all four of us in his office despite KO being less than an hour away and also for the cookies in the second half. All in all a fantastic day for us, and a day Billy will never forget.”
