Members back Recommendations
Wednesday, 24 April 2013 05:31

City Fans United members voted overwhelmingly to back the recommendations set out in the Big City Census 2013, with important decisions being made on both the price structure for next season, and also the membership fee increase from £5 to £12 per year.

 

The full report will be issued shortly, but 85% of respondents to the Census backed the suggested prices for the 2013/14 season, with 10% against the recommendations.

 

Based on a suggestion from Blues fan and CFU member Mark Beeton, who asked the question about Season Tickets in the previous City Fans United meeting, there is a 'cashback' incentive for Season Ticket Holders, where those purchasing have the chance to claim cashback on Adult season tickets, if they purchase their season ticket by Friday 9th August 2013, and the target of 750 Adult season tickets is hit.

 

Prices for next season will be as follows:


Season Tickets

Adult seated £299 (£268 with cashback incentive)

Concession seated £209

Youth 16/17 £99

Child 5-15 £40 (or £60 with junior sized shirt package, £65 if adult sized shirt required for Child)

 

Adult standing £259 (£233 with cashback incentive)

Concession standing £190

Youth £99

Child 5-15 £40 (or £60 with junior sized shirt package, £65 if adult sized shirt required for Child)

 

Legends Lounge

Individual £499

Corporate £599

 

On the Day Prices are as follows:

Adult seated £16 (previously £14)

Concession seated £11 (previously £10)

Youth 16/17 £6 (previously £5)

Child 5-15 £3 (previously £3)

 

Adult standing £14 (previously £12)

Concession standing £10 (previously £9)

Youth 16/17 £6 (previously £5)

Child 5-15 £3 (previously £3)

 

Nearly 82% of those completing the survey also supported the idea of a Family Stand, and the board will now look at the viability of that idea.

 

The CFU membership fee is currently £5 per year, and the recommendation of moving this to £12 (or £1 per month) was supported by 89% of respondents, and now the board will look to introduce an option whereby fans can obtain their membership via Direct Debit to help with future membership periods.

 

It was also announced that the CFU Player of the Year Award will be revealed and presented on the day of the Town Hall celebration, on Saturday 11th May, allowing all fans to congratulate the winner at the Civic Reception.

 

The Census results will be issued in full shortly, as we now collate all the comments that go with the results, and get in touch with all those who would like to help with both volunteering at the club and with the fundraising efforts, as well as participate in the income generating schemes currently ongoing.

 

Thanks to everyone for completing the Big City Census 2013 and for having their say on how the Club moves forward.

The Big City Census 2013
Monday, 15 April 2013 05:05

This weekend, The Big City Census 2013 has been sent out to City Fans United members, either by e-mail or by post, depending on what details we hold for you.

 

CFU & Chester FC Chairman, Tony Durkin, emphasized the importance of this year's Survey being completed by members:

 

"I would like to say a big thank you to all our members for the efforts that have been put in this year.  We have had an unbelievable three years since the misery of going out of business.  We have all been learning how to run a football Club and I can assure you that the Board are striving to improve our performance off the field.

Now things get serious.  We know that we are stepping up a level next season and we all need to raise our game.  That means building income streams through matches, sponsorship and growing our presence in the wider community.  Our model relies on us all pulling together and each giving what we can to build our Club.  Some are in a position to give money and others can give time.  Even if you are in a position to do neither, your support by simply being a CFU member means more than you might imagine.  Thank you.

You will find questions in the Census about next year’s admission prices and CFU membership fees.  Please consider these carefully – the Board have made recommendations but ultimately it is up to you as owners of the Club.

There is also the chance to vote for your CFU Player of the Season in the Census!

The information you give us will be vital in helping us to shape our strategy for the coming season.  Please just click on the link below and complete the survey by 5pm on Monday 22nd April."
