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.

 

 

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

Safety is of course paramount in this situation, and at present several areas of the ground are deemed as ‘Out of Bounds’ due to the water ingress and the board are currently in the process of trying to resolve the issues currently being faced and ensuring there is no risk to anyone’s safety within the ground.

 

We will announce a revised date once we are in a position to do so, but we’d also like to remind those interested in standing for election that they will need to submit their application by Friday 17th August. Please refer to our recent mailing for further details on this. or by reading our previous announcement regarding the upcoming AGM.

Those who have purchased Season Tickets will need to bring proof of ID or their till receipt that they were given at the time of purchase with them, to enable them to redeem for the Season Ticket.

 

The FEWG are extremely thankful to the volunteers from the Ticket Office, who are putting the Season Ticket packs together prior to Thursday night.

 

We will also have Bern & Jono coming down after they have finished training to give an update as we get closer to the big kick off, and each of the Working Groups will also be represented in the Blues Bar, so please come down and have a chat and see how you can get involved in helping your club.

 

Naturally we hope that as many Season Ticket holders as possible come down to the event on Thursday night, but if unable to do so, then the Season Tickets will be available to collect from the Ticket Office at the ground from Friday 27th July 9.30am-4.30pm, and then from Monday to Friday the following week.

 

Please note, that if you have purchased a season ticket in the last 7 days then this may still be in the process of printing, and will be unavailable to collect on the evening.

 

We look forward to seeing you there!
