Annual campaign begins

Forfar Athletic fans and members of the local community in the town are being urged to once again get behind their local club to help score a share of cash for their local youth teams.

Now in its second season, Cans for Youth Teams is a club investment initiative from IRN-BRU and the Scottish Football League (SFL) which awards each of the 30 teams in the SFL a share of a £70,000 prize fund. The more IRN-BRU cans collected by Forfar supporters, the larger the share their club receives. With £10,000 available for the top club from each division, competition will be stronger than ever.

Cans for Youth Teams collection bins will be placed at Station Park and participating local stores and key venues in the community, allowing members of the public out shopping or fans attending a game to drop in their empty cans of IRN-BRU before the cut-off date of Saturday, May 4.

The IRN-BRU bus will also be stopping off at Station Park for the home match against Stranraer on Saturday, March 2.
