Chesterfield say that donations received via a JustGiving page will go towards improving the current live streaming, as well as on improvements to the stadium.
The Spireites explain: “After an attack on the club’s website that disrupted some fans’ enjoyment of our first streaming match, those who purchased were offered a free stream for the following game. Many had no issues and either paid again or were given the chance to make a charitable donation to the Chesterfield FC Community Trust.
“Donations totalling nearly £4,500 were received by the Community Trust with more to come from potential gift aid. Some of the money received will be used to purchase software and equipment to enhance the live stream in place for home fixtures, with projects aimed at improving the stadium also funded by the fundraising initiative.
“The live stream production is delivered by volunteers and media students, providing them with valuable experience.”
