After five consecutive away matches, we can’t wait to welcome our supporters back to Solitude for Saturday’s clash with Ballymena United.
From a League Cup quarter-final battle in Portadown to Danske Bank Premiership trips to Warrenpoint Town, Linfield, Coleraine and Larne, the Red Army have turned out in their numbers to get behind the team.
Now it’s time for Cliftonville to head back home and, whether you’re a McAlery Stand regular or one of the Understanders, it goes without saying that the players are eagerly looking forward to hearing you pump up the volume for the Sky Blues’ visit this weekend – the first of five matches at Solitude throughout December – so make sure you’re part of that famous roar in the coming weeks as Cliftonville bid to end 2021 as strongly as possible.
Don’t forget, too, that the Club’s annual Foodbank Collection will be held ahead of kick-off on Saturday.
Fans are invited to bring foods – with particular recommendations for easy-to-carry items such as Smash dried potatoes, Fray Bentos pies, corned meat and tinned ham – which will be gathered at a specially designated area near the turnstiles.
These goods will then be donated to The People’s Foodbank – formerly known as our long-term partners at the North Belfast Advice Partnership – for further distribution to those in need in our local area, with the organisation appreciative of the opportunity to make up Christmas Hampers and prepare for 2022 with the support of Cliftonville FC.
Supporters intending to visit the Social Club are, meanwhile, reminded of the Covid Passport regulations that were introduced this week, with all entrants required to demonstrate evidence of:
- Double Covid-19 vaccination;
- A Covid Passport QR code;
