Morecambe Fans Fund
To celebrate the beginning of the fans fund, we held a dedicated Community Day on 30th March 2019 at the Mazuma Stadium. Since then we have gone on to provide a supporters hub dedicated to every weekend home fixture throughout the 2019-20 season.
Shoot for Goal Attraction
Our “Shoot for Goal” family-friendly inflatable was used as part of the Premier League Fans Fund grant. Aiming to provide families and young children with free regular pre-match entertainment.
The “Shoot for Goal” attraction was brought it at the start of the 2019-20 season. Providing supporters with a better matchday experience starting from when they arrive at the ground. Furthermore, because it is free of charge, it especially keeps the younger supporters happy and enjoying fun activities.
Dedicated Community Days
As mentioned, in celebration of the Premier League Fans Fund grant, we held a dedicated Community Day in March 2019. Following on from this success, we went on to host one during November 2019. This was at the Mazuma Stadium when Morecambe FC faced Leyton Orient.
Our Community Day’s are used as a celebration for the work that we do in and around the local community. Whilst also having the opportunity to give something back to those that we work alongside. In the past we have invited local primary schools, grass root football teams, community groups and charity organisations. Allowing them to celebrate the day and watch a game of first team football at the Mazuma Stadium.
On both occasions we have held a Community Day, we have seen an influx in attendance. Over 900 invited people turning up. For the young children and families invited, it opens a gate for them to watch their local football team play. Perhaps going back again in the future if they enjoy the experience.
