Established three years ago, Non-League Day has now grown to become an annual part of the football calendar, and for the first time Chorley FC have a home fixture as they host Stafford Rangers at The Chorley Group Victory Park Stadium on Saturday September 7th, Kick Off 3pm.
Always scheduled to coincide with an international break, Non-League Day gives fans of football league clubs the chance to see what’s going on at a club that is on their doorstep which they may be unfamiliar with or not even know exists!
By spreading the word and promoting Non-League Day, members of Chorley FC are hoping that supporters of Blackburn Rovers, Wigan Athletic, Preston North End and Bolton Wanderers will turn up at Victory Park on Saturday September 7th and experience the passion and enthusiasm of both players and volunteers involve in the non-league game. As an additional incentive, Chorley FC will be admitting league club season ticket holders for only £5.00 on the production of a current season ticket at the turnstile.
As Chorley FC celebrates its 130th year, it is the traditional values and sense of belonging that makes non-league football so appealing to supporters. Admission prices are realistic, you can often stand anywhere in the ground and you are guaranteed a warm welcome from fellow supporters and the willing volunteers who run the club. The Victory Park social club provides a wide range of beers in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, and Sky Sports provides further entertainment before and after the game.
Non-League Day provides the perfect opportunity for local people to support their town team, to meet old and new friends and to ensure that grassroots football in Chorley survives for at least another 130 years.
Please spread the word and encourage supporters of all local teams to come along to Victory Park for Non-League Day on Saturday, 7th September.
