GABLE ENDIES ANNOUNCE FRIENDLY DETAILS
Montrose FC have confirmed their pre-season friendly schedule, kicking off with home games against Arbroath and Fraserburgh, and finishing with an away trip to newly promoted Kelty Hearts.
The Club also confirmed that fans will be welcomed back to Links Park for the home fixtures, but will be limited to Season Ticket holders only, with the friendlies being treated as test events.
Championship neighbours Arbroath will visit Links Park on Sat 26th June with a 2pm kick off, with Highland League side Fraserburgh arriving the following midweek, on Tue 29th June for a 7:45pm kick off.
Rounding off preparations, Stewart Petrie’s side will travel to New Central Park to play SPFL’s newbies Kelty Hearts with a 2pm kick off.
Operations Manager, Davey Byrne explained, “We are really excited at the prospect of getting fans back into the ground. However, we still have a lot of procedures to follow to ensure everyone remains safe from possible Covid-19 infection.
“We have therefore decided to limit the two home friendly fixtures to Season Ticket holders only, to allow us to more easily manage the safe re-introduction of fans.
“Due to current government guidelines, our capacity will remain severely restricted as the cup and league campaigns begin, but if everything goes to plan with the friendlies, we expect to be able to offer entry to a small number of Montrose fans to each game, over and above our Season Ticket holders.
Those wishing to watch the home fixtures online will be able to do so using MoTV, with streaming details to be confirmed shortly. Season Ticket holders unable to attend in person will be able to watch online for free.
