The SPFL Trust, Scottish Library and Information Council (SLIC) and Scottish Book Trust have launched the second year of the 4-4-2 Reading Challenge.

Working in partnership with 14 SPFL clubs and local libraries, the 4-4-2 Reading Challenge inspires children aged 5-12 to read four books in exchange for match tickets.

The initiative centres on a reading “challenge card” which participating clubs and libraries will issue. For every book read, children will receive a stamp on their card.

When they have read four books, participants will receive a FREE match ticket, while an accompanying adult will be able to purchase a discounted ticket.

Funding for the 4-4-2 Reading Challenge has been generously provided by the SPFL.

In turn, the SPFL Trust, Scottish Book Trust and Scottish Library & Information Council embark on the second year of this initiative that aims to help children across the country. The project includes a Gàidhlig translation for the first time, in partnership with Bòrd na Gàidhlig.

Here's a reminder of how it works:

  • Borrow four books from your library
  • Collect stamps after reaching each one
  • Once your card is full visit your local participating club's ticket office
