From a dire start to the season, coupled with the news of reported financial issues, to one of the greatest comebacks in football, it has been a dramatic time to be a Preston North End supporter.


Now the club are hosting its first ever PNE Day with the club hosting a series of exciting events, aimed at boosting its profile, and highlighting the Football League’s chosen charity, the Marie Curie Cancer Trust.

The centrepiece of the day’s events will be Preston’s home match against Scunthorpe United with tickets slashed, once again, with £10 entry for adults, with seniors, young adults and students able to gain admission from just £8 and junior tickets only £3 in all areas.


Preston North End in addition, are encouraging every company in Preston and the surrounding area to sign up as supporters of PNE Day, allowing their staff to come to work in North End colours for the day.

Companies supporting the initiative will earn a place on the ‘PNE Day Roll of Honour’, which will appear as a permanent feature at throughout the duration of the promotional activities and also as part of the match day programme for that day’s game.

The club are hoping this initiative, will see staff wearing their Preston shirts handing buckets for donations to the Marie Curie Cancer Trust.
