Crowdfunder rewards update

Crowdfunder rewards updateHere’s an update of where we are at (a little behind unfortunately, so please bear with us). We are working through the rewards to make sure everyone gets their rewards as soon as possible. Most of them cannot be completed until the ground is finished ed (e.g. name read out at first game).

As the ground is now opening later than originally anticipated – we can’t arrange some of the rewards just yet (particularly the ground tour) until we have a ‘moving in’ or handover date confirmed.

The thank you cards have all been delivered, as we managed to find who those belong to. The certificates are printed and are just waiting to be handwritten with names of the recipients – these will start to go out in the post over the next 2 weeks.

The framed items have been lovingly designed by a kind and creative volunteer and will be ready for collection for the first game.

For the meal planned for Thursday 4th December, it’s likely we will have to move this to another date due to the delays on the building programme.

For the “certificates??? and “name on the website??? rewards, one thing holding us back is that whilst we have your email addresses, in some cases we don’t have your names or addresses to send the rewards to.

There were 679 pledges, but we have only had around 50 replies to the initial email sent out requesting details of the pledgers. To explain, when pledges are made on Crowdfunder, unfortunately, there is no option allowing you to input who the reward is for, or where to post the reward to. We can’t get this info from your login IDs. Some members used different email addresses to the ones we have on record, so for many of you we don’t know who the rewards are for.

So now it’s over to you – please let us know your full name, address and telephone details to make it easy for us to identify you, and we can complete all the reward deliveries and pick a winner of the donated ‘all rewards’ prize.

You can do this by:

-Responding via our crowdfunder@fc-utd.co.uk email address leaving the required details (e.g. name, address, contact number & Crowdfunder login name if you have it please)

-or call the office on 0161 273 8950 and leave your details


For all other rewards, some kind volunteers are working their way through the data to confirm who you are (if you haven’t already responded). Once we’ve identified you, we’ll give you a call to arrange your reward on a suitable date.

Thanking you in advance for your patience and co-operation. We’re immensely proud of what we achieved and it’s all thanks to our members and supporters.
