FSF backs ‘Non League Day’

The FSF is pleased to lend its support to ‘Non League Day’, calling for fans of Premier League and Championship clubs to visit their local non league side on Saturday September 4th. Initially started as a small campaign on Facebook, the idea is now gathering real momentum. 

England play Bulgaria at Wembley on Friday September 3rd (in a change to the usual Saturday and Wednesday games for European Championship qualifiers), meaning fans of clubs in the top two flights will find themselves with no game to go to the following day, as those leagues take their traditional break for the international fixtures.

With potentially hundreds of thousands of fans without a match to go to, Non League Day hopes to persuade them to check out their local sides, and provide a timely boost to the coffers of clubs in lower reaches of the football pyramid. Clubs in Leagues One and Two are also likely to see a bump in attendance figures across the weekend.

As the campaign’s page says “With tickets and refreshments at a fraction of the cost, what’s stopping you? Do your bit for semi-pro and grassroots football, get out and support your local team be they in the Conference or the Combined Counties League”

If you’re interested in getting involved and want to know more, visit Non League Day’s Facebook page, follow them on Twitter (@non_league_day or by using the hashtag #nonleagueday).

For those of you wouldn’t have a clue in telling your Isthmians from your Zamarettos, the organisers have helpfully produced a handy Google Map to show all the non-league fixtures that are taking place on Saturday September 4th. There are hundreds to choose from, and wherever you are you won’t be far from a match, so why not get along?
