AS we’ve some clarity regarding the future of the National League North ahead of the 2020/21 season, planning has continued for the much-anticipated return of football to Victory Park.
The early termination of the 2019/20 campaign and consequent loss of revenue has had a major impact on our financial situation, as it has for many clubs throughout the football pyramid. The loss of high profile home fixtures with AFC Fylde and Notts County hit us especially hard.
In planning a budget and strategy for the new campaign we have done our utmost to match the ambitions of the Club and supporters, whilst remaining mindful of the economic effects on everyone connected with the Magpies. We need to ensure that income from the 2020-21 season is sufficient for Chorley FC to be able to recover, stabilise and thrive. We also want as many of our fantastic supporters as possible to join us at Victory Park, to help us on the road to recovery and mount a sustained bid for promotion back to the National League.
The club is hugely grateful to all supporters who’ve taken advantage of the Early Bird Extra Discount and Early Bird offers. We can’t wait to welcome you all to Victory Park – hopefully in the autumn.
