Statement re financial support for Woking FC

Post by Nico » Wed Mar 18, 2020 9:40 am

The Board have noted with gratitude the various posts and creative ideas regarding how to help financially support Woking FC. At this stage we would ask that we store all the ideas and energy so that, at the appropriate time we can all, as fans and club, respond in a coordinated way based on the fullest information; we don't yet know whether this is a sprint or a marathon

Over the next week or so football clubs will be assessing their own internal business resilience but also liaising with the National League and wider football world. Obviously some clubs have already had to make immediate and drastic decisions

It was heartening to hear from the League that Woking is considered one of the best run clubs and we were already in the middle of a pretty forensic budget exercise.

As stated above our request would that we hold all our energy and thoughts and together as club and fans we have a coordinated response when the time is right.

Thanks again for your support #COYC

Fantastic from our club. Are other clubs keeping their fans "in the picture?"

what really worries me is( it sounds like we will survive)..... Though how many others will in our league ? Some are already "on the ropes" with huge losses over the last 4-5 seasons.

Due to season ticket prices, the club is probably not quite so dependent on match day income as other clubs. In the sense that it has been paid in advance by a large proportion of supporter.

Other clubs, with full-time contracts to honour, are probably more dependent on the Saturday afternoon gate receipts.

Borehamwood are among the most fortunate, as match day income is approximately £80 per week based on their attendances.
