I am a member of this venture and in the first 24 hours of accepting payments over £250k was paid. It has slowed since then but of the 53k registered and emailed around half of them were opened. This could be due to holidays or spam filters as well as doubts people may have. At the end of the day £35 is equivalent to a premier league ticket and for the access this gives you it is phenomenal.
The site will have member-contributed articles.
We will have opinion polls and club votes which the members determine. These will emanate from member articles, member forum posts and member suggestions.
We will have videos of matches (depending on TV rights for the division our club is in) coach briefings, player, staff and member interviews etc.
A team selector will allow members to pick the XI and formation of their choice or to follow the Head Coach’s suggestions. The team selector will also archive previous team selections.
Comprehensive pre and post-match reports which will include video, articles and statistical game analysis.
The club’s financial information will be accessible and updated regularly.
Member pages that will contain bespoke info (info the member can add and amend) and generated info (average team selection, votes taken part in, articles submitted, forum posts etc.) These pages will have privacy settings if the members prefers to not share information.
Members will be able to search for other local members to organise car shares for games, meetings etc.
A merchandise page as well as other voluntary means for members to generate extra capital for our club.
We will be well informed in our decisions on team selections which seems to be the main doubt with many people. The coach will make his selection and it will be there for us to agree with or change. I think a lot of people will go with him anyway as they are of the belief one man one vote
