Birmingham City star Craig Gardner will be paying for fifty families to see the Blues play QPR this weekend at home.

All children under the age of 16 will be charged £1 to see the fixture, under the club's 'Kids for a Quid' scheme.

It's important we continue to attract families and the younger generation of fans. All the players appreciate the support we are being given as the manager changes things and hopefully the atmosphere will be like it was in the last match at St. Andrew's, when there was a real coming together.

– Craig Gardner
