Matchday Support

Matchday Support (abbreviated MDS) is a new concept developed by Wayne Shortland MD at My Choice Local Sheffield. It is a unique idea that any football fan who attends football matches can get involved in.

Matchday Support offers fantastic footballing days in the UK to the following:
– Children who have lost parents
– Fans who have learning disabilities and physical disabilities
– Disadvantaged children and adults who have long and short term serious illnesses

MDS helps our young people (fans) to attend matches by pairing them up with volunteer buddies so that they can go and support their football team. Something most football fans take for granted. They also organise bespoke days, that can involve a tour of the ground, merchandise from the club, visiting the players in the dressing rooms and leading the team on to the pitch ahead of kickoff.

Matchday Support Enamel Badge

House of Logos was asked to produce a Matchday Support enamel badge. These are sold at football matches to fundraise, meaning any costs incurred are funded by the enamel badge. The badges depict the MDS mascot and are produced in a variety of styles. Enamel colouring is added to cater for a variety of football clubs to ensure a wider audience.

Matchday support is committed to providing fans the highest possible standards of service, ensuring a fun, inclusive, and enjoyable matchday experience. All people associated with MDS are unpaid volunteers, so if you go to matches and feel you want to get involved as a volunteer buddy, then please contact Matt.

House of Logos MD Mark Elliott is a qualified Football Referee and was keen to get involved with this worthwhile project so that everyone can enjoy our national sport.
