Members Vote for a New Shirt

At the General Meeting on Tuesday 20th March 2007 FC members voted overwhelmingly in favour of a new shirt for next season and club members now have the chance to design and vote on what that new shirt will look like.

Shirt Design Competition

FC United is to hold a competition to design a new home shirt for next season, the winning designer will get an all expenses paid trip to Turkey.

Supporters are invited to submit designs which will then be voted on by club members. The winning designer will be offered the chance to go out to Turkey and see their design being manufactured.

‘Unlike most football clubs FC United is wholly owned by its members and it is the members who decide on major issues such as whether the club needs a new kit,’ said FC United board member Scott Fletcher.

‘Our current kit was chosen by the steering committee when the club was first set up, now that the members have decided on a new home shirt for next season it seems appropriate that the members themselves should have a say in what any new kit will look like,’ he added. ‘As an added bonus our kit supplier, Tempest Sports, has offered to fly the winning designer out to their factory in Turkey to witness the shirt being manufactured.’

The Competition

The competition is open to supporters, of any age. The closing date for designs is 5.00pm, Thursday 5th April 2007. All designs should be sent into the club offices by post or by email:

Further details will be in the programme for the Congleton game this Saturday 31st March.
