CAMPION are hoping to quadruple their average attendance this weekend, with free entrance and free season tickets on offer as they link up with Kick It Out.

The organisation which tackles racism and discrimination in football has chosen the Bradford club's game against Retford FC as one of six non-league games across the country to promote its work.

And the Northern Counties East League Division One side hope the occasion - also held in conjunction with Non-League Day - can attract up to 300.

Secretary Dave Keegan said: "We're very grateful to MJK Sports Events for providing the season ticket offer and we hope that with Bradford City being away at Morecambe, we can attract some extra fans."

With a host of former players due back at the club on the day, committee member Andrew Shepherd said Campion have always been a diverse club.

He told Kick It Out's website: “During the 35 years of my involvement, because of the area we are based in we have always been a multi-cultural club.

“It’s always been about wearing the colour of the shirt rather than the colour of anyone’s skin. Everyone is always welcome.”

Shepherd added: “We’re just trying to make it a diverse day, we want it to be really enjoyable.

“We’ve got 40 former players coming down to share their memories over the years and celebrate what we are.”

Two local junior sides will lead the teams out and there will be a penalty shoot-out for under-12s. ND Dance Academy group, who have performed at Bradford City on matchdays, will also provide entertainment at half-time, and Afro-Caribbean and Asian food will be on sale.

James Doe, who set up Non League Day after being inspired by a pre-season trip to watch Queens Park Rangers play in Tavistock, said: “It’s great to be able to say we’re working with Kick It Out again.

“Their work at all levels of the game is incredibly important and I’m really proud we’ve been able to assist in delivering their message of equality and inclusion.”

Stonewall FC (London), Clapton CFC (London), IQRA FC Leicester (Midlands), Newark Town FC (Midlands), and Nantwich Town FC (North West) are the other five clubs linking up with Kick It Out this weekend.

Eccleshill United are also providing free entrance to their NCEL Premier Division match at home to Garforth Town.

Held to coincide with the autumn international break, the annual Non-League Day is celebrating its tenth anniversary on Saturday.

Fans of teams not in action are encouraged to watch their local non-league side in place of their regular football fix.
