  • Freehold certificates for their individual piece of land.
  • Pitch Shares
  • Incentives (Cheaper season tickets for X years, entry to one game
  • per season for free for X seasons)
  • Benefits to Businesses: ????
  • Everyone who purchases a piece of land will be shown on the pitch map inside the stadium and over a double page spread in the programme which can provide an alternative advertising option.

  • There are a wide range of methods in which people will be able to purchase lots.
  • Set Prices Different lots are valued at different prices, dependant on the area of the pitch. E.g. Sidelines - 100, Infield - 150, Penalty area - 200, 6 yard box - 250, Centre circle - 300, Penalty spot - 400, Centre spot - 500
