We are pleased to announce that the Development Fund (DF) has now raised £83,380 this Financial Year. The DF raised £2,743 in the period between 22nd March and 29th March - We would like to express our sincere thanks to everyone who has made a donation.

The DF was established to allocate funds to be used specifically for the build and development of our own football ground. Between 2007 and 2016, we raised £1,139,441 - a fantastic achievement that is a testament to the passion, dedication and generosity of FC United supporters. The money raised between 2007 and 2016 was used to help build and develop our new ground at Broadhurst Park.

There are still areas of the ground that need to be developed further. We have set a fundraising target for this season of £300,000 to help us specifically develop the area under the St. Mary’s Road Stand, complete the build of the two ends of the Main Stand and allow us to meet the obligations of community shares and loans from the initial build.

In the period 22nd March to 29th March the money raised was:

  • DF Donations: £540
  • PFTG/ Barrels: £882
  • DF Holiday Club: £200
  • DF Fundraising Initiatives/Events: £1,120

    TOTAL: £2,743

    At the Halifax home match we raised £627 for PFTG tickets, £255 in the barrels, £143 from the DF Turnstile, £77 from the football cards and £36 Stand for a Pint. CYCM helped raise £187.90 and the Stockport Branch donated £100 towards the handrails.

    We have also received £675 from individual tickets sold for the upcoming Gala Dinner and Supporters Dinner. Next week we will add the amounts from invoices that have been raised for the Gala Dinner tables.


    The total money raised between 1st July 2016 and 29th March 2017 is:

  • DF Donations: £42,643
  • PFTG / Barrels: £18,232
  • DF Holiday Club: £17,160
  • DF Fundraising Initiatives/Events: £5,345

    TOTAL: £83,380
