As of August 1st the 50/50 Supporters Club will be rebranded as the New Central Park Ground Fund, its still only £10 per month with 50% still going towards the monthly draw prize pot. The other 50% of the monthly income will be ring fenced and used for improvements to New Central Park, our Social Club or the Sports Lounge.
From next season being a member of the NCP Ground Fund won’t entitle the member to a season ticket, this was a sound model 10 years ago when entry to matches were lower and we were operating at a different level but the past few years the club were losing vital income from the gate with htis structure.
An average adult supporter going to all home matches would pay £10 per month with half going back out as prize money so essentialy that supporter was paying £5 to watch 2 home matches. If we want to keep competitive on the pitch and to continue to invest in the ground so our supporters have the very best matchday experience then its clear the model needed changed.
Our membership is currently sitting at over 130 at present with a target of 150 for next season, this could have £9,000 per year going into the improvement fund which we will let the members vote on each year. The club will put forward 5 improvements each season and we will let the members vote to decide what their money is used for. We shall have information on joining very soon.
