Partick Thistle have offered fans the chance to help the club out financially during the SPFL suspension.
Revenue streams are thinning up and down the Scottish football ladder as plans are drawn up with how’s best to end this campaign. Its suspension has been caused by the Covid-19 outbreak, which isn’t supposed to peak in the UK until between May and June.
There are four ways in which Thistle fans can contribute to their club financially. These include a one-off donation to a GoFundMe page activated by fans, donations to Thistle For Ever, buying a commemorative tile or signing up for the biggest centenary fund draw in Thistle history, coming this April.
A statement reads: “While we have built a solid financial base with no debt to service, the next few weeks and months bring financial uncertainty for all businesses. PTFC is no different. The Board will continue to work hard to ensure that when football restarts in Scotland, we are ready and able to do so, despite potentially a significant loss of income.
“However, we have been overwhelmed – though not surprised – by the generosity and kindness of supporters getting in touch asking in which way they might be able to financially assist the club. We thank all of you sincerely for that backing.
“We fully appreciate that many people will not be in a position to make a financial contribution right now – if that is you, please don’t worry, support comes in many forms so please keep backing us, engaging with us, sharing our stories and looking out for your fellow fans.
“We make no apologies for repeating everyone at the Club’s huge vote of thanks to all supporters – Thistle fans never step back from a challenge and that is being shown again right now.
“We hope this update helps offer suitable options to those fans who do wish to make a financial contribution to the club, no matter how big or small.
“Most of all, we continue to encourage you all to follow government and NHS advice and look after yourselves and one another. There is nothing more important than the wellbeing of all connected with Partick Thistle.
“There will be a wider Partick Thistle FC update shared with supporters tomorrow around what we plan to do to keep the Thistle family together in the months ahead.”
