Robins are delighted to announce we have once more linked up with Swindon Town in the popular "Pro Red" scheme, designed to encourage links between STFC and youth football clubs and enable parents and friends of players to buy tickets for Swindon Town games at a special discounted rate.

The highlight of the package is our nominated "Pro Red Day" when all Robins teams go to a designated Swindon Town game as a club. Last season's "Pro Red Day" was a huge success as you can read here, and this season's promises to be just as much fun.

This year, Swindon Town are asking that players pre-register for the scheme, under the club name - once we have 100 players registered for Robins FC, then we can book which game we want to attend as a club. So for now, all we need you to do is go to the ProRed website and register using the following process:
Go to http://www.pro-red.co.uk and scroll down to the section marked "How to take advantage of the scheme"
Fill out the form with the player's and parent's details
In the drop down section marked "Name of School or Youth team" make sure you select "Robins FC" under the Youth Teams list
Within a few days, you will be emailed a supporter reference number by Swindon Town - please forward this on to your team manager, as we will need these when booking tickets for the ProRed day.

The benefits of the "Pro-Red" scheme include:
Club day out at a Swindon Town match, Robins teams will take part in pre-match and half-time activities on the pitch – as stated above we have chosen the Yeovil game in April, full details will be given nearer the time, but for an idea have a look at the report from last season's day out
“Player ambassador” - clubs participating in the scheme get to nominate a first team player to act as their "player ambassador". Last season, we chose popular Town captain Nathan Thompson and after the game our players were able to meet not just Nathan, but also manager Mark Cooper and the game's Man of the Match, Ben Gladwin
Discounted tickets to Swindon Town home games for all Robins players and their families, with Robins getting a percentage of all sales! Adult tickets booked under the scheme are £15 (usually £25 in the main stands), Concessions just £10 (usually £19) and child tickets are just £5 (usually £12) – that's less than half price! Save yourself some money and raise money for the club at the same time – you can't lose!
