Chesham United is delighted to announce plans for Non-League Day on Saturday 7th October when they play host to Royston Town in the Southern League Premier Division.
The club will be circulating hundreds of FREE TICKETS to the youngsters of Chesham via local schools, youth and sport clubs, and to make it affordable for parents to attend the match as well, admission on the day will be PAY WHATEVER YOU WANT. Yes, you read that right – no set entrance fee and no minimum charge either. All that is asked is that every adult attending the game does make a contribution, but if you decide that is only going to be a pound or two, then that is fine, equally, if you think the visit warrants a £10, £20 or even £50 contribution, you will not be turned away! (Normal admission fee is Adults – £10, Concessions (over 65s, students with ID) – £8, Under 18s – £3, U12s free when accompanied by an adult or concession otherwise £3).
Non-League Day was set up by James Doe in 2010 as a social media experiment, after being inspired by a pre-season trip to Devon to watch Queens Park Rangers play at Tavistock. It has now grown to become an annual part of the football calendar, backed by Premier League and Football League clubs, MPs, celebrities, media organisations, charities and most importantly the non-league clubs themselves and the fans who turn up on the day.
Always scheduled to coincide with an international break, Non-League Day provides a platform for clubs to promote the importance of affordable volunteer-led community football while giving fans across the country the chance to show support for their local non-league side.
