For the last three seasons, the Iron have hosted a Grassroots Day at Glanford Park.
For a specifically allocated match day, United have invited local youth groups to the stadium as part of group booking packages with over 70 local junior football teams taking advantage of the offer most recently in February 2019.
In 2017, the day was held when Scunthorpe hosted Fleetwood Town, 2018 saw Gillingham visit the Iron, while in 2019 it was Accrington Stanley who were at Glanford Park on the day. On all three occasions, the event has boosted the overall attendance by around 1,000 people with a number of adults and under-18s arriving for their first ever live football matches.
Such is the success of the event, the club plans to continue offering these events once per season.
Keep an eye out for our Grassroots Day in 2020!
