KO Cup Quarter-Final: Discounted Admission for Accredited Away Supporters

Eastbourne and Leicester Speedway clubs have linked to boost away support for their KO Cup quarter final matches.

Admission will be £10 for ‘accredited’ supporters of Leicester at the first leg of the tie on Sunday, June 30, at Arlington Stadium.

A similar scheme will be in operation for Eastbourne fans who go to the second leg at Leicester on July 5.

The reciprocal arrangement is the brainchild of Neil Machin, ex-BSPA Management Committee member, and currently part of the Sheffield/Leicester management team.

Eastbourne business director, Ian Jordan, said: “We are delighted to work with Leicester (and hopefully other clubs in The Championship) in this exciting innovation to boost away support across the league.”

How does it work?

For Sunday’s match, which starts at 3.30pm, the £10 admission is for Leicester supporters who produce a current Lions’ season ticket, or valid Leicester supporters’ club card, at the Arlington turnstiles.

Eastbourne Speedway will announce on Monday (July 1) the accreditation arrangements for Friday’s match at Leicester.

The proper accreditation must be produced at the turnstiles for the relevant matches.

Only those with that accreditation will be admitted for £10. This scheme is for bona fide away supporters only from Eastbourne and Leicester.
