2020/21 Surrey Fixture Update

Following our 2020 AGM we considered a number of fixtures for both our men and women’s team in 2020/21. We’re holding back on finalising dates until we know the relevant club fixtures to ensure no risk of conflict. However, we are happy to share some updates about what fans can begin to look forward to.

We currently only have 1 friendly planned in 2020 due to a likely congested club fixture list, we’ll be announcing details of our women’s trial game soon, once dates are confirmed, but a venue and likely opposition have been decided, subject to dates. The game will be held behind closed doors, even if there is a change in government/FA guidelines, this is to best prepare ourselves and ensure the safety and well being of everyone in our first game since December 2019.

We’re hoping our 2021 Surrey home friendlies will be open to spectators and will retain our existing price structure for both Surrey men and women’s games. Adult: £5, 65+/Student: £3 and U16: Free. Meanwhile our Southern Frontier Cup prices will also remain the same as they were for the original 2020 edition, however the Early bird discount deadlines will change, tickets will launch in August, exact date to be confirmed, and will remain available until the end of 2020, on January 1st 2021, the prices will change to general sale, so don’t miss out on getting your tickets early with up to 1/3 off.

All games open to spectators will be ticket only, and details of how you can purchase your tickets will be announced when details are confirmed. This is to both ensure we comply with any track and trace measures and limited capacity measures still in place for our games.

Our men’s team will play their long overdue friendly against a Hampshire Xi side in aid of St Catherines Hospice and Crohn’s and Colitis UK in May 2021, and will still be sponsored by Milestone Transport Planning.

We’ll also be aiming to announce new dates for the Southern Frontier Cup soon as well. Cascadia, Parishes of Jersey and Yorkshire are automatically re-invited to the rescheduled tournament, but their places will be confirmed once new dates have been agreed

We’ll also be looking to confirm details for other fixtures, especially our women’s home debut soon as well, and potential opposition for this game is also being looked into.

Surrey Supporters Club revamped, moving to Patreon from Summer 2020

International Surrey Football is pleased to announce that the decision has been made to revamp its Surrey Supporters Club membership structure, moving away from a single-tier annual membership, to a new multi-tier monthly structure with more content and opportunities to save on Surrey tickets and merchandise.

Currently, the Surrey Supporters Club has operated as £20 a year membership in its first year since launching in 2019, allowing fans reduced admission as well as enjoying reduced merchandise prices. Unfortunately, due to the global coronavirus pandemic, Surrey Supporter Club members have been unable to enjoy reduced admission for our now postponed May fixtures, that’s why we’ll be offering all current Surrey Supporter Club members a flexi-ticket, allowing for free admission into any Surrey friendly or £5 off a Southern Frontier Cup ticket, only redeemable on matchday, not for early bird tickets. Details of when these tickets will be issued will be published when available.

From today, new memberships for our annual structure will be suspended and existing membership renewals canceled. From June 1st 2020, we will be launching our new 3 tiered monthly membership structure giving fans new options and a more cost-effective approach to membership. E-Supporter, Supporter and Supporter+ tiers.

On December 24th 2019 International Surrey Football announced that Surrey would host Barawa at Merstham FC on May 3rd coinciding with Surrey day in the first game of our May 2020 fixture list.
