Stags Fans United appeal hits £33,000 today Friday 20th June

Stags Fans United (SFU) has reached £33,000 in its appeal to raise £250,000 to buy a future share in running Mansfield Town Football Club.

We are delighted to have hit this amount after only 18 days of fundraising, we know we still have a long way to go but under the current circumstances we find our club in, we think this is a great achievement, a big thanks to everyone who has donated so far.

You can now join and donate online, through this website (follow links to SSA online shop, and go to the bottom of the page) or via the new website of the Stags Fans United ( http://www.stagsfansunited.com )

Other Fundraising events:

Half Marathon - Update
We have had a great response to the Mansfield Half Marathon in July, we have over £1,000 in sponsorship, which is not included in the above, we have also had another fan who has agreed to run for SFU, Andy Squire will join the other three runners Craig Ploughman, Julian Smith and Chris Vasper. All four are training really hard and the competition is now on to see who will come in first!

Race Night on Friday 18th July at the Kings Arms, all are welcome.

A Sportsman's dinner is planned for 24th September at the John Fretwell Sporting Complex. Further details of this will follow shortly.

Any fans with questions about the SFU and its aims can email: questions@stagsfansunited.com
or text 44 7786 200 350 (all text messages must start with the letters SFU)


Application form:
Use this form here to donate money to the Supporters Trust towards its £250,000 target to help future owners of the Stags in return for a significant say in the running of the club.


Clarifications: TEAM Mansfield will still be the supporters trust but will be renamed the Stags Fans United Supporters Trust. All money and legal transaction will take place through this.

The trust board will be filled by current members of the TM Board (with some stepping down) and by electing representatives from the other supporters organisations (Stags Fans for Change, OSSC, SSA). This will be formalised at the AGM.
