It's your shout

To address the issue of rising beer costs at the suppliers, but also being mindful of FC United’s commitment to affordability for all, we have devised a new approach to pricing pre-match alcoholic refreshment.

It henceforth shall be known as ’It’s your shout...’ In a similar vein to FCUM’s universally lauded ’pay what you can afford’ season ticket policy, we are to trial a system that allows people to pay what they can afford for beer.

The minimum contribution for the bottles will remain at £2, the price of beer since the very inception of CYCM and the Main Stand Inn, but from now on we will ask those who can afford it to pay the club’s recommended amount of £2.50 or more in order to help us as we make the final charge towards Moston.

The recommended £2.50 cost will mitigate supplier price rises and will also offset the price for those who are struggling financially. If people wish to pay even more than £2.50, they are very welcome. The £2 minimum will ensure that everyone can still afford a drink pre-match, whatever their financial situation.

We hope supporters will back ’It’s your shout...’ and we trust you all appreciate the effort that has gone into it from all at the club in order to balance the financial realities, while also remaining true to our principles of affordable football.

’It’s your shout...’ will start this Saturday, and we will assess and report on its success during the coming months.
