May 2, 2019 - Canadian Premier League (CPL) - FC Edmonton News Release

Edmonton, AB - FC Edmonton is pleased to announce a new partnership with Crystal Glass and Kids Up Front Edmonton to provide unparalleled access to matches for local children and families.

Crystal Glass has purchased 40 season tickets in one section of Clarke Stadium, located in the northeast corner, and will be donating them to Kids Up Front. The section will be named the Crystal Glass Family Section. Currently, Kids up Front has a waiting list of 500 tickets from local agencies with youth and families wanting to attend FC Edmonton's Inaugural CPL Home Game on May 12th .

Fans can donate groups of tickets to any match including our home opener by calling the club's front office. Fans who purchased season tickets and flex packs can also now donate them to Kids Up Front by following a few easy steps through their Ticketmaster Account Manager.

"Crystal Glass is proud to partner with Kids Up Front & FC Edmonton to ensure that kids and families have the opportunity to be included in events such as these," said Ken Franczek, General Manager of Crystal Glass. "We believe that communities matter and we love helping our community any way we can."

"The kids that we serve have been faced with challenging circumstances -what we give these kids is more than a ticket," said Javier Salazar, the Executive Director of Kids Up Front Edmonton. "It's the opportunity to relax, have fun, and have some quality time with their family. Time and again, we have seen how the experiences provided by these types of tickets act as a positive catalyst in the development of the young recipients."

"These partnerships are critical not just to our club, but the community as a whole," said Jay Ball, FC Edmonton General Manager. "Soccer brings everyone together. This partnership with Crystal Glass and Kids Up Front is an inspiring example of community inclusion so that everyone can be part of the professional soccer experience."
