The Davie Cooper Suite at Fir Park hosted a range of free fun events and offers before the recent meeting with Kilmarnock.

The new initiative forms part of a drive from Motherwell to improve the match-day experience for fans and give them better value for money.

Motherwell stars Craig Reid and Jack Leitch joined club mascots Claret & Amber and the kids for a fun FIFA tournament hosted by local store Game, while others enjoyed the free Match Attax cards and games.

Commercial manager Diane Harvey said: “If you’re going to the football with a couple of kids it can be an expensive outing.

“Our new initiatives are designed to take that cost pressure off and as well as extending the match day experience.

“On purchasing drinks from the bar, adults can claim free soft drinks for their accompanying under 18s and buy a hot filled roll for £1.50.

“Our ‘Autograph and Picture Zone’ is proving just as popular with the adults as it is with the kids and moving forward, we’ll have a series of ‘money can’t buy’ prizes for our match day raffles.

“The kids were thrilled that first team players Craig and Jack were joining them and it’s clear the players enjoyed it too.”

General manager Alan Burrows added: “We want to give fans more reason to join us earlier on a match-day by making our offering better.

“We have planned some investment in the Cooper Suite, but before that we just want to make it a good environment for both sets of supporters to enjoy some pre-match fun and have a drink, a quick bite to eat and of course live football.”
