Detailing the initiative, a club spokesperson explained: “As a monumental month of fixtures awaits Tiernan Lynch’s Inver Reds, we are pleased to launch the ‘Back Larne’ campaign ahead of next Saturday’s Irish Cup semi-final and the Sports Direct Premiership split.

"Over the past six years, the community support which we have benefited from has played a pivotal role in our dramatic rise from the NIFL Championship to the European stage as champions of Northern Ireland – and it is never something which we will take for granted.

"With the club entering another vital period as we aim to push for trophies on multiple fronts, we are asking you to Back Larne more than you ever have done before."

The spokesperson added: "Over the next few weeks, the club will put increased resources into promoting the ‘Back Larne’ message within the community, including offering businesses, community groups and sports clubs the opportunity to win match tickets by showing their support for the campaign.

"If you do go to games regularly, can you encourage more friends/family to join you and Back Larne? Have someone name you as having referred them to buy a ticket for one of our split home games and be in with a chance to win the cost of your 2024/25 Season Ticket covered. This option will become available once tickets for our post-split home games go on sale.

"Are you involved in a business, school, community group or sports club which could promote the ‘Back Larne’ message on your premises or social media channels?”
