City Fans United Members’ Meeting – June Recap

City Fans United members were invited to an informal CFU meeting on Thursday 27th of June. For those unable to attend our latest meeting, here’s a recap of the important updates and discussions.

Update from Albert Davies

Albert Davies, our General Manager, opened the meeting with an update on our recent commercial activities. He highlighted some key initiatives, including the recently announced partnership with Revolution, and the continuation of Precision Facades and the Metcalf family as stand sponsors.

Albert emphasised the work happening to secure a stadium sponsor and also the player sponsorship opportunities for the upcoming season. If you are interested in learning more about commercial opportunities then please contact Albert

Pre-Season and Player Recruitment Update by Jim Green

Next, we heard from Vice-Chair Jim Green, who provided an insightful update on our pre-season preparations and player recruitment. Jim talked about the enthusiasm for the upcoming season and the hard work that has gone into our player recruitment.

He assured fans that the recruitment process is ongoing, with a focus on bringing in talent that aligns with the club’s values and aspirations. Jim also highlighted our pre-season fixtures, including the planned trip to the Isle of Man.

Fanzone Development Progress

Jim also gave an important update on the progress with the fanzone. Earlier this year, we published our ambitious fanzone proposals on the Chester FC website. We are pleased to confirm that plans have now been submitted to both Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWaC) and Flintshire Council for their initial feedback and to address any safety concerns.

The next steps involve reviewing the feedback from the councils, making necessary adjustments, and commissioning detailed technical drawings from our architect. This planning process ensures that we meet all regulatory requirements and safety standards before moving forward with the propsal.

CFU Membership Update

As you may already be aware, we have recently changed the system for CFU memberships, switching over to our new ticketing supplier Fanbase. We have already had some great feedback on how easy the sign-up process is, but we’d like to take the time to address a few FAQs.

  • CFU Numbers – you may have noticed that your Fanbase account is showing a different number than your original CFU number. This number is NOT your CFU Membership number, it’s simply a reference that Fanbase has automatically added to your account. We are working with Fanbase to remove these from your digital wallet to avoid confusion. Your legacy CFU number is safely stored with us.
  • Physical Membership Cards – cards will soon be available for those who want them, we will be in touch in due course to let you know once they are ready.
  • Early Renewals – you may have renewed earlier in the year before we made the switch to Fanbase. If this is the case then rest assured that you are very much still a CFU member. We will be emailing those still on the old system shortly to advise that your next renewal window will be the opportunity to move over to Fanbase, but for now, we don’t plan on migrating people over to the new system manually, except for Lifetime Members.
  • Accessing the Membership Area – Fanbase members do not currently have access to the members-only section of the CFU website. Work is ongoing to rectify this and we really appreciate your patience whilst we work through the technical aspect.

We are grateful to all members who attended the meeting and contributed questions during the Q&A. Your passion and support is what makes Chester FC, and we appreciate you all. For those who couldn’t make it, we hope this recap keeps you informed and engaged with the club’s ongoing efforts.

If you are not currently a CFU member, you can join here.

CFU Members Play Off Semi Final Tickets Sales Window

Chester FC are currently selling tickets for the National League North Play off Semi Final, and here’s a ‘how to purchase’ guide for City Fans United (CFU) members, with some action to take if you have not already registered on the Chester FC Box Office.
CFU Members – what to do/know ahead of Monday’s CFU Members Sales Window
Between 10am, Monday 1st May & 8pm, Tuesday 2nd May, CFU members will be able to purchase tickets for the Play Off Semi Final – there is a limit of one ticket per CFU member.
This does mean that you can purchase more than one ticket, but the other tickets need to be assigned to a CFU member with a SEAL account number. You will not be able to purchase a ticket for a CFU member who does not have a SEAL number.
Action to take: All CFU members who have a Chester FC Box Office account have a ‘CFU Members 22/23’ tag applied to their account, as per the example displayed below – if you are an existing member and do not have this green tag displayed on your account, then please email with your SEAL number and CFU member number by 6pm Sunday 30th April. Please check your account as soon as possible.

Action to take: If you are an existing CFU member that hasn’t got a SEAL number, then you will need to register by 6pm, Saturday 29th April, in order for any purchase of ticket to be made during Monday & Tuesday.
For All Ticket Purchases:
You will need to log in to your SEAL account to access tickets as this window is only available to CFU members until 8pm, Tuesday 2nd May. 

The match will show as unavailable to you, until you log in using the account that your membership is associated with.



When you are logged in, please pick the total number of tickets that you would like to purchase across the available prices. You will be asked to assign tickets to other members before you pay for them.


Add the tickets to your cart and click on the ‘Assign Attendees’ button. 



If you have selected more than one ticket, one ticket will automatically be assigned to you. You will now need to assign the rest to the other people in your group. 



To do this you will need to know their account number which starts with SEAL followed by 7 digits and their name as it is registered on their account.


To assign a ticket, click on the ‘Add Details’ button and enter the account number (SEALxxxxxxx), first and last name of the person using the ticket. 


If the account number entered does not have a membership associated with it, you will not be able to assign a ticket to it. 


Tickets are limited to 1 per account.


Once you have assigned your tickets, click on the ‘Confirm & Pay’ button and check out as usual.

How to find out your account number

In preparation for the member sale, you can check to make sure your account is eligible to buy tickets. It is advisable to do this ahead of the sale date, so you have everything you need to be able to buy tickets once they’re on sale.

If you have an online account, log into it and go to the ‘Your Account’ section. You will see your name and account number at the top of the screen. It starts with SEAL followed by 7 digits.



If you have a membership associated with the account, you will see a green tag displaying ‘cfu-member 22/23’ at the top of the screen. 


If you don’t and you think you should, please contact so your account can be checked and updated.
