Please see the club website article - www.suttonunited.net/amber-500-update-and-draw-details/ - for Jason Reynolds’ update on Amber 500 and all the news about the prizes and the draws. We have presently sold 152 of the 500 tickets available. We’ve got 8 weeks to go.
With no game this coming Saturday and, just for this week, no costs incurred in going to watch the team, how about supporting the club by buying a share in an Amber 500 ticket instead?
There have been some questions asked on this forum and via social media recently and maybe this is a good time just to remind everyone about the background to, and importance of, this scheme to the club.
The idea behind the draw was actually unveiled by Dos at the Q&A meeting we held in the MBA Lounge back in March, at which we identified four key fundraising projects to help us to continue to challenge in the National League. The Amber 500 draw was one of those projects. Proud of our status as a “fans-owned” club it asked our growing number of supporters, who have enjoyed super low season ticket prices for several seasons now, to really back this scheme and help bridge some of that financial gap we needed to fill. Funds raised from it were to go towards funding the team’s away travel in the National League.
That message, strongly conveyed by Dos back in March, is even more important now than it was then. The support of our brilliant fans has never been more vital, and if every season ticket holder bought even a quarter of a share in a ticket (just £25), we would be very quickly sold out. Join in with some friends and form a syndicate; alternatively we can organise a syndicate for you. This is your club. Let’s do this.
