MK Dons host inaugural Ladies Day
MK Dons’ game against Brentford this Saturday (12 February) has been designated as the first Stadium:mk ‘Ladies Day’.
The Ladies Day will also see MK Dons supporting local charity, The Myrtle Peach Trust. The charity works to help Milton Keynes Hospital prevent, treat and combat cervical and ovarian cancer.
Christopher B-Lynch, who established The Myrtle Peach Trust, said: “The Trust was established for a fundraising charity in May 1987. It supported cervical cancer care with excellent results and now also concentrates on early diagnosis of ovarian cancer together with active research with Cranfield University.”
A series of other special events have been planned, including musical entertainment, manicures, polishes and massages.
Female fans (and accompanying gents) can purchase Club Red tickets for £20, and female season ticket holders from other areas in the ground can upgrade to Club Red for just £5 along with their accompanying season ticket holder friends and families, male or female.
Other features planned for Ladies Day include the introduction of the MK Dons Ladies Team to the crowd at half time, and ballgirls from the MK Dons Girls’ Centre of Excellence will be in action pitchside throughout the match.
Chairman Pete Winkelman also held a special reception at Stadium:mk for 20 local businesswomen on Monday 7th February.
Andrew Cullen, Group Sales and Marketing Director at MK Dons said: “The Ladies Day is another special event designed to encourage more people to experience the excitement and emotions of live football as well as encouraging more ladies and girls to get involved in playing the game.
“We are proud of the facilities we have at Stadium:mk, which was rated number one this year in an independent Football League survey for comfort, safety, sightlines and stadium cleanliness, and we hope that events such as Ladies Day will introduce more people to their local professional football team.”
