In a bid to increase accessibility  and participation, senior citizens and fans aged 16 to 21 will be offered discounted membership. Fans under the age of 16 can become members of The Bench for £46 a year – the equivalent of just £2 per match. Supporters under the age of seven take part for free alongside a full paying Bench member adult over the age of 16.
