12th Man

For the first time in four years, the "Be the 12th man" competition will be running with tickets priced at only £5 each on sale till the end of March, with the draw being held on the pitch at Broadhurst on the 30th of March at our home game vs Nuneaton Borough.

The lucky winner will win a place in the FC United First team squad, travelling with the team to away games, taking part in the warm ups, attending training, and if you're good enough, you can be selected to play!* The prize is open to both male and femaie entrants, though due to obvious reasons some aspects of the prize will have to be amended based on gender, and you don't have to be a budding footballer, you can be any age and just take things at your own pace, you can do as much or as little as you like as you see first hand the inner workings of the club.

The winning ticket holder can transfer the prize to someone else, but there is no cash alternative as this is a money can't buy prize - including but not limited to:
