Interesting debate. Should EPL clubs charge for the rights to be mascot. Image from @footyaccums
From my perspective including EFL, NL and NLN it is an acceptable income stream in commercial budgets with discretionary allocations waiiving fees in case of hardship or ‘charitable’ recognition.
Read this post by County faithful, Jamie Summers, and thought it to be a nice synopsis of current days. Long may they exist! Reproduced with kind permission.
“My shot of Stockport County’s following at Altrincham today – well over 1,500 away fans at a sixth tier fixture. It’s been a difficult decade for County – a football club emasculated by administration, financial mismanagement and off-field ineptitude and/or amateurism; but, after a fallow period in regional football, there’s a growing feeling that this is a club heading once again in the right direction. Today’s 1-0 victory was County’s sixth win in seven games, during which time they’ve conceded only twice. It was also their fourth victory over Altrincham this season without conceding against them – and Altrincham are a good side at this level. The Hatters start 2019 sat 3rd in the National League North, and with a squad and management team which has a bond and understanding with the supporter base like no other in the last ten years. Perhaps this really is their season. Either way, it’s a football club which has started to get its mojo back.”
Now taking bookings at Club 13 and open for business.
Nothing less than a desire to become the leading forum where sport is the catalyst to first class hospitality, entertainment and networking that delivers real returns to its members.
Club 13, rewarding for all comers.
A business network, born in Salford, with global ambitions. Pioneered from the AJ Bell Stadium. Club 13 is the brainchild of Andrew Rosler, a director of the new holding company for Salford Red Devils Rugby League Club. But be very clear, the grounding is from rugby, though this inspirational gathering is for sports enthusiasts whatever the game.
The Club will host dynamic events and guest speakers throughout the year at the AJ Bell Stadium and other venues across Salford and Greater Manchester. These will be a real treat and are hand-picked to add value and entertain.
