The need to bring in a large support caused the club to cut admission prices for both sets of fans. As previously reported the cost will be £8 for adults and £2 for concessions. There could be a larger than usual support from over the Tay as United have announced that they will be providing free transport for the travelling Arabs.
Fans queue at the East Stand
John Boyle said, "It has been an extraordinary season for the club. Despite the difficulties we have faced in the league campaign, the clubs young players have performed brilliantly at times. They have shown that good home-grown talent is where the future of Scottish football lies.
The club has survived some very difficult times over the past year. No-one wanted Motherwell to go into administration but had that not happened the club would have had to be wound up. The steps taken were very difficult but at least allowed the club to continue.
The fans have enjoyed great results against the top five teams in the SPL and turned out in force for the cup semi-final. Now the chips are really down in terms of the league and Motherwell needs its fans to come out and support the club more than ever.”
Terry Butcher chipped in with, "The fantastic support the fans gave us at Hampden in the cup semi-final made a huge difference to the team. We want to see that kind of support again on Saturday."
And the newly crowned Young Player of the Year said, " The team needs the support of the fans more than ever on Saturday. It is a vital match for us. The cut price tickets give every Motherwell fan a great chance to come to the game and give us their support. We believe we can give the fans a victory that will go a long way to making sure the club stays in the SPL next season."
This is why the club has launched this ticket initiative and we're delighted to have the full co-operation of Dundee United who are laying on free buses for their travelling support".
