Clyde are offering fans an innovative Digital Season Card

The innovative scheme for the 2020-21 season will provide Bully Wee fans with credit to the value of a regular season ticket - which they can then spend as they wish at the club.

They can use the cards to buy match tickets if fans are allowed into games. But it can also be redeemed against merchandise, replica kit and Arria Lounge refreshments.

In addition digital card holders will also be entitled to a discount on match entry, hospitality, merchandise and replica kits.

A club spokesman said: “The new Season Card which will replace the traditional book of vouchers has been created in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and is the first of its kind in Scotland.

“With uncertainty over how and when matches will be held next season, it provides season long value and beyond, flexibility and helps fans to further support the club.”

Supporters will be provided with a digital Season Card via the TicketCo Wallet app on their smartphone.

The digital technology will also help reduce the number of touch points at Broadwood, as part of a drive to achieve bio security compliance requirements at the stadium.

Each Season Card is pre-loaded with £250 for adults and £50 for under-18s.

Balances can be topped up throughout the year if need be and unspent funds can be withdrawn at the end of the season, donated back to the club or used towards the purchase of a card for the following season.
