I see the logic behind this campaign in wanting to target enthusiastic sports fans to assure that the venues are filled. Would there would be scope to extend it to charities/community organizations / schools?

The 'Fans in Front' concept seeks to ensure that seats around the field of play are filled with passionate spectators, as this will provide athletes, other spectators and media with a great atmosphere inside our venues. The plan is at an early stage and so no decisions have been made on the details of how the scheme will operate, but it should be noted that these will not be free or subsidized tickets.
