How do lower league fotball clubs survive amid rising costs?
For us here at PFC it takes an entire town and district to ensure our survival. We have many income streams; gate money, stadium catering, corporate hospitality, advertising boards, match and ball sponsorship, programme advertising, League sponsorship, merchandise sales, social club and coffee shop income, platinum club, raffles, donations etc, but one income stream that fans may be unaware of however is the financial input from our Patrons. We would therefore like to take the time to introduce you to our patrons over the coming weeks to show our appreciation for the lifeline that they provide and to shine a spotlight on our “behind-the-scenes” benefactors.
MB Plant Vehicle, Plant and Access Hire are one of our longest standing patrons who have over the years provided the club with both North and South-based minibuses to transport players as well as supplying vital equipment needed to carry out stadium repairs, when you see a cherry-picker in situ to fix our floodlights then this will have been generously donated by MB Plant. What has made this relationship all the more remarkable is that the owner Brian Rennie is not actually a football fan but is someone who has contributed to the running costs of PFC knowing the importance of supporting a local community club.
From all at PFC, thank you for your valuable support and we wish you and your team continued success.
