Welcome to City Fans United
New name revealed for reformation of club
Thursday, 25 March 2010 00:00

After a week of voting, the time has finally arrived to announce the new name for the reformed club aiming to appear at the Deva Stadium this August...

In 1989 on this day, Graham Abel scored a stunning goal for Chester City against the mighty Wolves at Sealand Road, whilst on this day in the year 2000, Chester destroyed Mansfield Town 5-0 at the Deva Stadium.


Today though in 2010, another memory is etched into the lives of Blues fans - the day the club went back to its roots.


A week ago, fans were invited to vote on four options to come up with a name for the reformation of the club, with the four choices being Chester Football Club, City of Chester FC, Chester Rovers FC, and finally FC Chester. City Fans United opened up the voting to the whole community of Chester fans, in the area, the UK, and the rest of the world too - in fact fans in no less than 20 countries took part in the unique vote, with numbers voting totalling well over a thousand.
