Since its launch twelve months ago in February 2017 Build The Budget has now raised more than £100,000 through the generosity of individual fans and supporters groups.
The BTB committee, our media team, volunteers, management team, staff and players have worked hard on the BTB Offers, duck races, Christmas Raffle, channelling of WST membership subscriptions, attendance income from 23rd December V Dover and many many more.
Make no bones about it this has been an incredible effort and every single person who donated, bought a raffle ticket or contributed in another way has influenced the performance of the team through our ability to sign players of real quality. This has enabled Dean and his staff to create a high performance culture and make us very competitive again.
We understand and appreciate the sacrifices people have made to support this effort and we hope that it delivers the burning ambition of every person who loves Wrexham AFC which is to regain our place in the Football League.
Yet we know promotion from this division is possibly the most difficult task in British Football and to maintain and sustain performance levels we have seen this season requires similar levels of investment going forwards. As a club we are working incredibly hard to raise income levels so that we can sustain football of this quality. To name but a few you will have seen new sponsorship partnerships such as the BKoncepts Stand and Hays Travel Stand, sold out hospitality in the stadium and high quality retail in a town centre location over the Christmas period. In addition we have worked hard to land a major concert in the summer in the Stereophonics.
Your Opinion Counts
With all this context in mind we would like feedback from fans if you want us to relaunch Build The Budget for 2018/19 season so that we can make a decision by the end of this month. You can provide feedback in one of 2 ways:
This will be an agenda item at the Trust Meeting on Monday 26th February starting at 7:30pm in the Centenary Club, when we will ask members their opinion so we can gauge if fans believe making the effort and sacrifice the right thing to do when we see the results on the pitch.
In addition should fans want us to relaunch BTB for 2018/19 we would be very interested to hear your ideas on how we should go about it. Therefore please include in your email any ideas you may have or bring them to the Trust Meeting on Monday 26th.
One again thank you for your magnificent support, let’s keep it going in the ‘run in’.
Come On You Reds!
