·       Schools*

(Bespoke packages to include Children aged 11 to 15 can also be discussed and built following application process)

If you are an accredited representative or decision maker at any types of organisation listed above, and wish to take part in the initiative and receive free batches of passes, please contact us via our Community Email here and a Member of our Community Team will contact you.

The Eagles are using the free junior season pass offer to build on the success in 2019 of the HG Aerospace-sponsored Community Programme, managed by Dave Rollison.

Eastbourne Eagles Director Ian Jordan commented:

“We are delighted to officially launch our Children Under 11 Season Pass Scheme.

“We wish to break through the glass ceiling in terms of marketing and advertising our product, as we believe that stadium based, high octane, no brakes, 4 lap, 15 race, Team Speedway is not only a hidden jewel but one of, if not the most exciting and affordable forms of spectator and family entertainment in a great and friendly environment across the Globe”  

“We also believe that any sporting club with an active database of 30-40,000 under 11s will become a very interesting Affinity; Marketing and Advertising proposition that can only enhance our own and your own Advertising and Sponsorship income via innovative Customer Loyalty type schemes,” Jordan added.

 “It remains a vital requirement for the Sport as a whole and for Eastbourne Speedway specifically, to nurture and develop not only one new generation of Speedway fans, but actually two generations – the Under 11s AND their parents in the 20-50 age range, which data shows nationally and locally, as largely unaware of, or ambivalent to the Sport.

 “In many ways I think the middle generation, ‘mid 20s to 50’, are the ones most overlooked; ignored and forgotten by the Sport. We need to enthuse them to give Speedway a go, via their children and indeed their own parents.

“It would be great see three generations at Speedway.”

Data from last year’s Community Programme visits shows that more than 20% of the first-time visitors came back and many seem to be “hooked” by the excitement of speedway racing. 

“The bottom line is that I want everyone to know that we welcome ALL children 11 and under to sample Speedway at Eastbourne FOR FREE in 2020, if they already have a Pass or if they come for the first time; because all first timers without a Pass will be handed one at the turnstiles on their first visit to keep and use throughout 2020, although we expect the majority to receive their passes in advance via our extensive planned marketing campaigns.”

“As mentioned previously, we haven’t forgotten those aged 12-16 either, or full-time students aged up to 22 as our Match Day Admission structure for 2020 shows (Please see our match Day Admission Prices and extensive Concessions here)

“In addition to the free Junior pass, we have a number of new Community based initiatives planned for 2020, including the launch of the new Speedway Hub at Arlington, which will be the core focus for visiting groups through the Community Programme.”
