Imps promote city to visiting supporters

The new away day guide will be available soon

Travelling fans coming to watch Lincoln City will now be able to make more of their time here thanks to a new partnership deal between the club Visit Lincoln.

The deal sees the Imps become a corporate partner of the community interest company.

The League Two club have sponsored the 2018/19 Lincoln Loves Kids booklet as part of this agreement.

A brand new away day visitors guide, which will be available here later this week, has been introduced to encourage visiting fans to make the most of their visit to Lincoln.

Chief Executive at Lincoln City Football Club, Liam Scully, said: “We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Visit Lincoln; not only to encourage travelling away fans to visit Sincil Bank to watch their team, but also to spend a bit longer in Lincoln to see our beautiful city.

“As Lincoln City FC continues to grow on and off the pitch, we believe it will have a positive impact on the local economy; not least with the travelling away fans and local home fans, but also with other commercial opportunities that will be presented by having a vibrant football club within Lincoln”.

Chief Executive at Visit Lincoln, Lydia Rusling, added: “Working in partnership is at the heart of everything we do. We have enjoyed working with the team at Lincoln City FC to produce a new Visiting Supporters’ Guide to encourage visiting football fans to stay a little longer in the city, and maybe turn a match day into a short break.

“The Lincoln Loves Kids booklet sits at the centre of our family marketing for Lincoln and the surrounding area and to have the association with the city football club is a winning combination!”
