Brighton and Hove Albion have donated 1,000 match day tickets to NHS front-line workers to show their gratitude for their service during the coronavirus outbreak and have urged teams across the U.K., including Manchester United and Manchester City, to join the initiative.

Both Manchester clubs have already shown their charitable side during the global pandemic, as they came together to donate £100,000 to foodbanks in Greater Manchester.



Brighton chief executive Paul Barber started the campaign and wants clubs across the Premier League and EFL as well as senior clubs from Scotland and Northern Ireland to pass 'the baton' to one another and ring-fence tickets for either a single game of a spread of fixtures when football finally returns, with the sport currently suspended until at least April 30.



The campaign aims to raise 100,000 tickets for games across the country to say thanks to the health workers who are putting their own lives at risk to help combat the COVID-19 virus.

“We are absolutely delighted to match Brighton’s gesture and commit to one thousand tickets, and we will pass the baton to another club with the aim of reaching a significant target so football as a whole can show its appreciation for our country’s NHS workers," Mostyn added.

“We fully appreciate football is the last thing on anyone’s minds at this moment, but we feel this is a small way in which we can show our gratitude for those NHS staff on the front line who are fighting the battle on behalf of all of us and give them something to look forward to.

“Of course the biggest support we can all show our NHS heroes is by following the crucial government advice on social distancing, self-isolating, hand hygiene and using tissues to catch, kill and bin coughs and sneezes.” Barber nominated South Coast rivals Bournemouth to be the next club to follow suit and Cherries’ chairman Jeff Mostyn has gladly accepted.
