CFU secure the Deva Stadium for Chester FC

City Fans United are delighted to announce that following meetings with representatives of Cheshire West & Chester Council, the lease to the Deva Stadium, will now be assigned to City Fans United. This will enable Chester Football Club to use the ground from a date to be confirmed.

This is obviously great news for all Chester FC fans, as it means we can continue to plan for the future at a ground that enables the history of Chester Football Club to continue. We will now be looking to recruit a first team manager, interested applicants should contact CFU via

City Fans United are naturally delighted with the decision CWaC have made. Chris Pilsbury, CFU Chairman said, “We would like to express our gratitude to all involved for their assistance in bringing the fans the news they so desired.”

“We look forward to living up to the faith the Council have shown in the CFU business plan, and working in partnership to give our City a Football Club that we can all be proud of.”

“The really hard work begins now. We are all one step closer to bringing football home to Chester but your Club needs you! If you have yet to join CFU please consider doing so, and if you are already a member please encourage others to join. Football in Chester will belong to the community – be part of it!”

City Fans United are also interested in hearing from members of the business community who would be interested in discussing sponsorship opportunities with Chester Football Club. A number of flexible packages are available, please email with your interest and you will be contacted by a member of the board.
