City Fans United (Formal Meeting) – Thurs 29th August

Thursday 29th August will see the latest City Fans United meeting take place in the Blues Bar at the Deva Stadium.

 

The meeting which gets underway at 7.30pm on the night will be a formal meeting, and will be available to view on our Zoom channel, for members only. The Zoom app can be downloaded on phones or PC.

Super Seals Scratchcards launched

On 1st August, the Super Seals Scratchcard was launched. This scheme aims to help the local community as well as Chester FC.

 

Grenville Millington, who brought the idea to the CFU Fundraising Working Group, announced the initiative at an Informal CFU Meeting held in the Blues Bar.

 

“In recent years,” he said, “fans of Chester FC have been very generous in donating large amounts to the club and I felt it was time that income was generated from other sources. Therefore we want the scratchcards to be sold across the wider community and not to our supporters.”

 

The cards will be distributed to local sports and social clubs for them to sell to their members. In return, they will earn a 30% commission for their club. The remaining 70% is divided between covering the costs of running the scheme and funding Chester FC. A couple of fans very kindly donated significant amounts which went towards printing the initial batch of cards.

 

The cards are sold for £1 with a £500 maximum prize available. Players can also win complimentary tickets to Chester FC home fixtures, Match Day programmes and meals in the Gary Talbot Lounge (all these are subject to availability). Hopefully, the winners of these prizes will enjoy the experience and return to the stadium in future.

 

The Fundraising Working Group are looking for agents to sell the scratchcards so, if you are involved in a sports or social club, please email Grenville Millington via grenvillemillington@googlemail.com We would also like to see them sold in pubs.

 

For more information please see the Super Seals Scratchcards web page.

 

 

CFU Board – Update

City Fans United directors have strengthened the board with Paul McDermott joining as an external director.

Paul, (58), brings a wealth of business experience, and will help develop the link between the board and Stuart Murphy, who are intending on working together to develop the club in the near future.

On his appointment as an external director, Paul said, “I am delighted to be involved in the club and to play a part in its development off the pitch and enjoy its success on it.”

Welcome to the board of City Fans United, Paul.

Season Ticket & Membership Cards Collection Event – Update

Next Thursday (1st August) the Chester FC Fan Engagement Working Group (FEWG) are holding their Season Ticket & CFU Membership Cards Collection Event, and we have a further update for the evening itself.

 

As well as being able to pick up your Season Tickets & CFU Cards, the club shop will also be open on the evening itself with a chance to get your hands on the new range of items about to be stocked.

 

The Child home shirts that featured in the Children’s season ticket packages will also be available for collection next Thursday night too.

 

Plus, we’ll also be staging the draw for the Chester FC Community Trust’s Grand Summer Raffle, for which tickets can still be purchased and handed in prior to the draw taking place in the Blues Bar.

 

If that wasn’t enough, then we’ll also be holding an informal CFU Update during the meeting too, where we’ll have brief updates from the board members followed by a Q&A with the management team and hopefully some players from the 2019-20 Chester FC squad.

 

So, come and join us next Thursday night, it will be a great event, and the Blues Bar will be open from 7.30pm on the evening, with drinks available of course.

 

Membership Cards & Season Ticket Collection Event

City Fans United are delighted to announce the date for this year’s Membership Cards & Season Tickets collection night.

 

The event organised by the Fan Engagement Working Group (FEWG) will take place in the Blues Bar at Chester FC, on Thursday 1st August beginning at 7.30pm, and fans will be able to collect their 2019/20 season tickets and also their CFU membership card for the 2019/20 membership period, on the night.

 

We are also hoping to have some special guests on the night and we will confirm this in due course, but please pop a note in your diary to come down. By attending on the night you’ll also be helping ease the pressure on the ticket office on matchday. Season Tickets will then be available to collect following the event during normal ticket office hours.
