Chester FC Christmas Raffle 2018

Tickets for this year’s Christmas Raffle are available from the club’s ticket office during office hours and from the Community Trust’s Gazebo prior to home games on Saturdays. For those who cannot get to the stadium, requests for tickets to be posted out can be sent to


The Raffle is a key source of income for Chester FC – therefore we need CFU Members not only to buy tickets but also sell them to their family, friends and work colleagues.


The Fundraising Working Group will be taking tickets around pubs in the local area and also selling them in the Chester Forum on a couple of days – for which we thank the council for giving us permission. However we need as many people out there distributing tickets as possible. This is a chance for everyone who loves the club to work together and really make a difference. Fan ownership – fan action – at its best.


Although our managers are working wonders on the pitch, it has been a tough season for the club – especially with the flood at the stadium (and even international call-ups for our opponents!) depriving us of some lucrative Saturday fixtures.


Aside from helping the club… who wouldn’t want to miss the chance of winning £1,000 for just a pound? We have many other great prizes – checkout – and we will be adding to the list in the weeks ahead.


Infrastructure Working Group

The CFU Board are setting up an Infrastructure Working Group.


The aim of the Working Group is to develop ideas and plans that will create a stadium infrastructure to maximise revenue 365 days a year.


The group will also look to create a stadium that is fully accessible to disabled supporters.


Once the plans have been agreed with the CFU Board and key investor, Stuart Murphy, the Working Group will endeavour to obtain the required planning permissions and oversee the project to completion.


Many skills are required. Creativeness to come up with ideas to maximum revenue from the footprint of the stadium and car park. We are also looking for people with building planning and engineering knowledge and experience.


While some of this could be bought in, the board wishes to maximse the return on Stuart’s investment therefore if volunteer’s skills are available then the most the bang from his buck can be obtained.


If you are interested in getting involved, please email
