Students for FC United

This September will see Manchester’s 150,000 full-time students heading back to their colleges. Tens of thousands of these will be football fans new to the city and priced out of attending and getting the big match atmosphere at most grounds in the area. That’s where FC United has a major part to play. We can offer students a great, fun matchday at affordable prices. We can also offer them volunteering opportunities by assisting us in our community development work.

If you are at college or university why not set up a supporters’ society through your students union? Contact johnthomason@fc-utd.co.uk if you need assistance.

In particular, all supporters at the Universities of Salford, Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan are asked to get in touch. The three universities are each holding their Freshers’ Fayres in the week beginning September 18th. FC United intends to have a stall and a presence at these so that we can establish supporters’ societies. Student supporters, and anyone free during the day, can assist by organising or staffing the stalls on the prime Fayre days, helping give out leaflets and signing people up to form our new societies.

Fayre days:
University of Manchester September 20th & 21st

Manchester Metropolitan September 19th & 20th

Salford University September 20th & 21st

Please contact philframpton@fc-utd.co.uk if you can assist in Freshers or wish to be part of a university supporters’ group.
