Sky Sports has called for fans around the country to get behind their local clubs, as The Football League begin preparations for the start of the festive period where a massive 192 Football League games will be played.
Over two million fans are expected to attend Football League fixtures between the 11th December and the 2nd January, with many heading home to re-unite with friends, family and their local football clubs. Those that do will have the opportunity to take in the magic of Christmas in the stands, with over 17,000 hours of football set to light up the festive period.
Fans can find out when their local clubs are playing and purchase tickets by visiting www.comehomeforfootball.com, making it easier than ever for supporters to be in the thick of the action, during what is traditionally one of the most exciting periods of the season.
Supporters that head to www.comehomeforfootball.com will also have the chance to win a pair of tickets to their club’s final home game of 2015 and an official Mitre Delta Hyperseam club-branded football signed by the squad.
