2024/25 Boost the Budget | 1874 Northwich F.C.

2024/25 Boost the Budget

Last season the club launched a Boost the Budget scheme for the first time. We received a fantastic response from supporters with almost £11,000 raised – Thank you to each and every one of you who contributed to the scheme.

The outcome last season was not the one we hoped for and even with the fantastic response to the Boost the Budget scheme, competing in the increasingly strong and competitive Northern Premier League proved too difficult.

We are absolutely determined to have a much better 2024-25 season and under Chris and his management team’s stewardship, we are hoping to build a competitive team for the new season and mount a serious promotion challenge.

As you know, a number of key players have already committed for this season and several exciting new (and returning!) faces have agreed to come on board. Chris continues to work tirelessly to bring in the players he feels will make the difference.

Financially, this season will still be tough for us, and we need to once again make Boost the Budget a success.

There are only eighteen teams in the Midlands Football League, providing us with only seventeen home league matches, compared with nineteen and twenty one matches that we have enjoyed in previous seasons. This results in a significant fall in revenue.

Furthermore most teams will not be followed by many supporters and we will miss out on home matches against the likes of Witton Albion, Runcorn Linnets and Macclesfield that have generated several thousands of pounds in gate revenue.

The team will have to travel 2,111 miles to fulfill all their league fixtures in 2024-25, compared with 1,158 last season. This obviously results in extra costs.

We want to give Chris, his team and the players the best chance of success this season which will hopefully mean as supporters we get to watch attractive football and a return to winning ways on the pitch – But it is going to need all of us to collectively pull together and go that extra mile.

We are therefore launching a Boost the Budget scheme for 2024/25.

How does it work?

We are looking for supporters to either make a one off donation of £25; or to make a monthly contribution of £5, £10, £15, £20, £25 or £50 by standing order over a 10 month period from July 2024 to April 2025 inclusive.

  • Everyone who joins the scheme will be included in the Boost the Budget Roll of Honour, included in the Match Day programme, and weekly newsletter, unless they request anonymity.
  • There will be three prize draws during the season in September, December and March respectively – Prizes TBC but will include signed shirts, other club merchandise, etc;
  • Participants in the scheme will be invited to a matchday event that will include pre-match food and drink, a chance to meet and hear from the manager and some of the players and post match refreshments – Details to be confirmed in due course;

Our Boost the Budget scheme opens on 1 July 2024.

All donations of any amount to the Boost the Budget scheme will be greatly received and will help make a positive difference to the running of the football club this season.
