Broomhill’s Next Home Match to be Donate at Gate

Broomhill Football Club will be welcoming Civil Service Strollers to The Rock on Tuesday evening and we are pleased to announce that entry will be on a ‘Pay What You Can’ basis with all proceeds from the match going to West Dunbartonshire Community Foodshare.

As part of our commitment to engage with the local community, we are delighted to be working with WD Community Foodshare to provide what we hope is a substantial donation, along with a ticket allocation each week to allow them to provide affordable days out for local families across the Lowland League season.

Clair Coyle, Charity Manager of West Dunbartonshire Community Foodshare told us: “We are delighted to partner with Broomhill FC and thank you very much for your donation. At this time, we are supporting a record number of people affected by poverty and food insecurity across West Dunbartonshire, with our highest increase amongst elderly and working households.  All monetary donations received are used to purchase ambient, fresh and frozen foods which go in our emergency food parcels.  We deliver parcels 5 days a week and each of our parcels contains a one-week supply.

We welcome Broomhill FC to the area and wish them all the best for the season ahead. Thank you for supporting our work.”

John Dods, Club Secretary, said: “Broomhill have always tried to support community efforts in our area wherever we can and, as part of our long term commitment to making Dumbarton our home, we are delighted to be able to offer tickets and the proceeds from our upcoming home game to West Dunbartonshire Community Foodshare. Hopefully folk coming along on Tuesday evening are able to support our fundraising efforts and give generously (if you can!) at the gate.”

Schools & Community Groups To Receive Free Tickets for Broomhill Matches

Broomhill Football Club are delighted to announce that we will be offering free tickets for schools and community groups in the Dumbarton area from season 2023/24.

We are committed to making our home in the town and as part of that, we want to work as closely as we can with our community to make everyone feel welcome.

We have lowered our admission prices from last season, are offering Dumbarton FC season ticket holders £4 entry, and plan to continue to do everything that we can to keep football as an affordable day out for everyone.

Broomhill’s Club Secretary John Dods said:

It’s of vital importance to us that the community we serve has access to affordable football, our standard gate prices and initiatives such as discounted tickets for Dumbarton season ticket holders, certainly help with that, but even this will leave certain parts of our community isolated and unable to access football.

With this initiative we believe we will reach every part of the community. By introducing young people to football, welcoming fans back who had, until now been priced out of football and providing the most vulnerable and isolated parts of our community with a social activity. Now everyone can look forward to the match on a Saturday.”

We are encouraging local community groups, carers, befriending organisations and charities to email us to sign up for our free ticket programme. Get in touch:

Schools tickets can be claimed by pupils at schools in Dumbarton and the surrounding area. Ask at the school office for more details.

The New Broomhill Badge

Broomhill Football Club are very pleased to unveil our new identity to take us forward into the new era of the club.

We know, another one! Following the end of our partnership with Open Goal, we wanted to reflect the short but eventful life of Broomhill through a new badge. As such, we worked with designer Martin Le Roy to create a new roundel badge for the club.

Using the circle from our Open Goal incarnation and the original badge of BSC Glasgow, we introduced the tree adapted from the badge of Broomhill Primary School, where the club was originally founded, the fish to reflect our history in Glasgow, and the saltire to… well… you can probably work that one out.

George Fraser said: “We are delighted with our new badge, can assure everyone that this will be the one we use permanently… unless we decide to change again! In all seriousness though, the badge gives a nod to our roots in Broomhill and our home city of Glasgow, where we have worked tirelessly to return to. We want to acknowledge to the changes that we’ve gone through as a club, and now look forward to a bright future.”

Michael Park said: “We’re delighted to have a badge that we can take forward into the future. The badge previous to our partnership with Open Goal wasn’t our favourite and a lot of the feedback about it looking like a Pro Evolution Soccer badge was noted. We had to make a change last minute and that’s what came out. We were so pleased that we were able to work with Martin to come up with a badge that speaks to our past and our future and gives us something to be really proud of.”
