Interesting idea from Darlington

Darlington FC Supporters Group, owners of your club, are hoping to raise £80,000 by inviting fans to pledge what they can, with proceeds raised going towards building our club on and off the field through Season 19/20.

The Chippenham board have previously stated that it costs £7,000 per week to run the club.

If the average punter pays £10 (allowing for seniors, kids, season tickets etc), and we have a home game every 2 weeks, then does that mean we need an average crowd of 1400 to break even ?

Erm.... No, we must make some money from the bar, burgers etc...
That said my fear is that the chairman must be putting some money in and unless the crowds increase he'll eventually get bored and give up.
