Crowdfunding Football: Fighting back through the crowd

Making a difference in football with free crowdfunding 

Hundreds of football clubs are turning to crowdfunding during the pandemic, working with supporters on a range of innovative campaigns to generate essential revenue and drive meaningful fan engagement. 

They are all shining a spotlight on the vital role that clubs play in our communities. 

The business of football is unique and the continued uncertainty around its possible resumption hasn't helped with financial and marketing planning.

Club officials are working tirelessly behind the scenes to keep clubs afloat.

But the comeback is on, spearheaded by the fans and Crowdfunder has played an important part of that.

We have waived all of our platform and transaction fees for clubs during the pandemic, meaning you keep every penny. There are no hidden charges.

And we have almost £3 million in +Extra Funding from Sport England to pledge up to £10,000 on grassroots campaigns during the pandemic.

Get in touch if you want to have a chat with our dedicated football team at football@crowdfunder.co.uk and we can have a chat.
