Yeovil Town is calling on Glovers supporters to show their true colours for our opening home match of the new season against Doncaster Rovers on Saturday 9th August.

As the new Sky Bet Football League season kicks-off, fans across the country are being set the challenge of creating a ‘Wall of Colour’ at their side’s opening home league match.  Fans can get involved by donning their club’s famous colours, as well as finding the most innovative ways to show off their love for their team through social media using #WallofColour.


Town will be looking to kick off the new season in style, with the first home result often proving a useful pointer to a team’s prospects for the season ahead.  Last season, none of the 10 clubs that won promotion from the Sky Bet Championship, League 1 or League 2 lost their first home league match. Additionally, none of the 9 clubs that were ultimately relegated won their opening home game.


Gary Johnson is looking to Town fans to play their part in getting by making Huish Park a sea of Green and White and creating a memorable atmosphere to inspire the team.

Under 16’s can gain FREE entry in the game against Doncaster Rovers. To find out more about this offer click here.


Shaun Harvey, the Chief Executive of The Football League, said: “The beginning of the new season is always a special time, with supporters full of hope and expectation that this season is going to be their year.


“It’s great to see Gary Johnson calling on fans to create a Wall of Colour at Huish Park and I hope that Yeovil Town supporters rise to the challenge.  Every side will want to make a strong start to the new season and the three points on offer could go on to make all the difference when the trophies are being handed out next Spring.”
