    Middle Seed and I picked up ours up yesterday! You are right Mark, brilliant idea of Boro' to offer 'em slightly early and at a very attractive price! Depending how many games we end up contesting this season, it could be an absolute bargain! :slayer:

    But it gives 'the faithful,' a perfect opportunity to show their support for there team, and the fans have again stepped up the the challenge, again! Built a new stand, fans bara and a variety of other developments and initiatives. When this town wakes up and looks to servicing the growth in houses and population, I hope people and businesses will look to SRFC as a true community club and investigate the opportunities for advertising, entertainment and sponsorship. :bravo:

    I'm intending to go to a few games this season with my son who's bought a season ticket.

    He mentioned that I would have to register to buy a ticket on the gate so does anyone know what this involves and whether entry into the stand is allowed for non season ticket holders please?

    I think all clubs are putting some sort of mechanism in place and we have already looked at a pre match ticketing system. This whole situation will probably bring forward the need for such systems rather than sticking with pay on the gate. Our league schedule gets under way with a home game against Ashton United on 19th Sept and we have 3 friendlies (2home and 1 away) before then that may be allowed 600 capacities so the club will have to have a plan in place soon to cater for such numbers.

    Did you know you could back your local club without it costing you any more than you already pay for goods?

    Entry into the stand for non season ticket holders is allowed, however there may be a small charge for this. I never sit in the stand so I can't be 100% sure.

    When buying a season ticket there are various options including purchasing a ticket in the stand. A stand season ticket is more expensive, hence why I believe there is a small charge for doing so.

    I was the ground yesterday to do some painting. To comply with the covid19 measures some rows have been taken out of use and there are loads of hand sanitizers situated around the ground.

    I hope to see you and your son at games very soon.

    I'm hopefully going to the stafford rangers game this Saturday. With regards to purchasing tickets for preseason friendlies, it's currently a moving feast as such i would recommend that you follow stafford rangers Facebook page or website to keep upto date.

    • Pitch side boards (12ftx2ft) on the ground or roadside boards on Astonfields Road
    • Roof top boards on the Lotus Stand – these are the biggest boards we have and those on top of the Lotus Stand are opposite our camera positions so boards are seen on all highlights, quite prominently.
    1. Our club website hits thousands of people every week and your name could appear on this at the right price. Your banner could appear on our home page and will be the first thing people see when they visit. ***New Offer needs agreement but can listen to offers.
    2. Business Club

    Moving with the times!
    We now have an online system and I am thinking this will help us sell out our current capacity of 600 each week.

    https://staffordrangersfc.ktckts.com/brand/match-tickets


    These crowds give us a good footfall in current times so if you have a business that wants to advertise feel free to leave details or inbox me.

    I've just read that following local authority advice fans can only have a beer whilst seated in the social club and that standing fans will have to wear a face covering.
