The '200' Club
The Club initiated a new fund raising scheme called the 100 Club early in 2004.
For just over £1 per week supporters can contribute of much needed Club funds and have the opportunity to win cash prizes each month. As the club has now reached it's first target of getting 100 subscribers, it has now become the '200' Club. The next target is to get 200 subscribers at which point it will become the '300' Club. Subscriptions will be collected by standing order each month.
The funds raised will be used as follows:
- 40% returned in prize money
- 30% towards the playing budget
- 30% to general Club Funds
So by directly becoming a subscriber you will be making a direct contribution towards the playing budget and the Club will commit to 'ringfencing' this money specifically for this purpose. As such the more subscribers we have the more money we can pay players.
As an example, if we can get to 500 subscribers this would bring in £2500 extra per month used as follows:
£1000 prize money
£750 towards the playing budget and £750 towards the Club funds. This would make a real difference.
- 1st prize £600 (60%)
- 2nd prize £300 (30%)
- 3rd prize £100 (10%)
We are also offering incentives to attract subscribers. For every 5 new subscribers you can introduce, we will pay £25 commission after four months payments have been received from each of them.
Standing Order forms are available from the Supporters shop, the Clubhouse, or the Club office. All we need is a cheque for £5 to cover the first month's subscription payable to Hastings United FC with your name, address and phone number on the back, and we will do the rest. It's that simple.
Please get behind this scheme and it will have a direct effect on improving your clubs fortunes.
