Update on Lease Application

City Fans United last night received an invitation from Cheshire West & Chester Council to attend a meeting next Thursday (29th April) to review our application for the lease to the Deva Stadium.

We have been informed that an application from Fodbold Selskabet will also be considered on the same day. City Fans United maintain the upmost confidence in our detailed proposal and we believe that our vision for a fully community integrated club will ensure that Chester Football Club is something the whole city can be proud of.


CFU has continued to be transparent with its members and more importantly the community of Chester. It is our belief that we have the complete backing of both our membership and the wider community as we enter the most critical stage of the application process. We also have the support of local and national businesses of all sizes and developed an excellent relationship with the football authorities. In addition, our plans for the creation of the Seals Foundation underline our aim to develop a football club that serves not only the local football community but also the entire city.

Our bid has also received overwhelming support from the Chester Former Player Association, which includes many famous names from Chester’s footballing past, and we are the only bid that is able to ensure that 125 years of history is not lost.

City Fans United membership now contains over 1500 Chester fans of all ages and we have always been open, honest and transparent with our plans for the future.

We trust the Council to make the right decision for the future of football in Chester and assign the lease to the Deva Stadium to City Fans United.

Let us keep Chester’s history alive.
