The current climate has had a massive impact on everyone’s life and livelihoods.
Football, and in particular non-league football clubs, have not been immune to this.
Bradford Park Avenue’s neighbours, Brighouse Town have launched an appeal to raise much needed funds to help the club survive throughout the ongoing crisis.
In a post on their Just Giving page, Brighouse Town’s team stated:
“Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, like all businesses, we have had to shut down, which has resulted in all future income which the club relies on to cover its operating costs becoming non-existent.
This has resulted in us having to give away nearly all our club stock due to use by dates and the likelihood that the current situation is due to last several months.
Match day revenue and local sponsorship account for nearly all of the club’s revenue, Since the 1st of February -until the season was suspended, we had 1 home game.
We still had 4 home games to play, along with the local schools finals and two well attended major local amateur finals that are played at the ground at the end of the season, all of which are essential revenue for the club.
With the season being cancelled this has meant all future income for this season has ceased.
This has led to the club having a void in our income as existing bills and future bills still need to be paid.
The current situation is a threat to many football club’s continuation and existence and we are no different. We are looking for help from the football family the local community and business to help the football club fill this gap.
Without the community, Brighouse doesn’t exist. Everyone at the football club thanks you for your support any amount no matter how small will go towards ensuring the future of the club,
