Our Walk to Westfield initiative in partnership with Take the Right Route will return for Season 2019/2020 better than ever. 

By taking part you can get fit, reduce congestion and save money all whilst supporting your team.

For this coming season, the meeting point will change from the Active Travel Hub to Costa Coffee in the Howgate Shopping Centre with participants asked to be there for 1:00pm where they will receive a free regular hot or cold drink.

Walk to Westfield takes place before each of our Saturday afternoon home fixtures, supporters are asked to register in advance each week with our Ticketing Manager, Laura Craig by calling on 01324 624121 opt 1 or by emailing laura@falkirkfc.co.uk.

Participants will also receive free parking, if required, at The Howgate Shopping Centre.

Walk to Westfield returns at our Betfred Cup tie v Livingston on Saturday 13th July. As a special additional offer for our re-launch all participants will also receive a free match ticket. Places are limited so make sure you register as soon as possible. 

Kieran Koszary, Falkirk FC Commercial Director, said: “Once again at Falkirk Football Club we are delighted to be partnering with our friends at Take The Right Route to deliver another innovative matchday concept for our supporters which also benefits the environment and encourages healthy living.

“With the support of The Howgate and Costa Coffee, the intention is for this season’s Walk to Westfield to go from strength to strength.”

Lynn Slavin, Falkirk Council Transport Planning Officer, commented: “Falkirk Council’s Take the Right Route team are excited to be working with Costa Coffee and Falkirk Football Club to deliver this year’s ‘Walk to Westfield’.

“We are really looking forward to welcoming our first participants on 13th July and hope to see many Falkirk fans take part throughout the season.”

Suzanne Arkinson, General Manager of The Howgate Shopping Centre, added: “We’re very pleased to be involved in the Walk to Westfield initiative.

“Costa work with us to deliver many community events, some of which are developed to help people who feel isolated or lonely, so anything that brings likeminded people together is a perfect fit for us. Promoting active health through exercise, companionship and shared interests is so important so we’re happy to assist in whatever way we can.”
