Since the start of the 2016/17 season, Partick Thistle FC have been looking for Community Champions to recognise before every Ladbrokes Premiership home games.
Backed by McDonald’s Maryhill, the Club is asking for nominations from the community so that it can reward individual’s generosity and compassion with a unique matchday experience.
Whether it’s work with local community organisations or public service workers, emergency services or armed forces (past and present), carers or charity heroes, one Community Champion per home game will be selected to come along and have a day at the football that they will never forget.
In association with Partick Thistle Community Trust, the Club is asking local charities and community groups to nominate a Community Champion, whose community spirit will be publicly recognised by Thistle.
We’re looking for Community Champions for our fixtures in October which are:
Saturday 14th October – 15:00 kick off – Partick Thistle v Kilmarnock
Saturday 21st October – 15:00 kick off – Partick Thistle v Dundee
Saturday 28th October – 15:00 kick off – Partick Thistle v St Johnstone
The Community Champion will be invited, with family and friends, to a Ladbrokes Premiership home game where they will be presented with a specially-made award in front of the crowd pre-match. They will do a short interview pitch side with match announcer, Gavin Wallace, before placing the match ball on a plinth for it to be carried on to the pitch for the start of the game. They will also feature in the programme for that game.
If you know of someone in the Maryhill area who is deserving of being named a Partick Thistle Community Champion, then you can nominate them now by downloading this form and, once complete, emailing it to the club at or dropping it into the executive offices at Firhill Stadium
If chosen, Community Champions will be contacted directly with the details of the game they have been selected to attend. They must be prepared to allow their information to appear on the Club’s website, in the match programme and in media relations/social media.
