Guiseley AFC is pleased to launch a creative crowdfunding campaign which reflects the core values of #GuiseleyTogether

The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for them to survive. At Guiseley AFC we celebrate that we are a family friendly, community focused football club, whilst we don't have the glamour of bigger clubs what we do offer is a warm welcome to all football fans - home or away. We want to take this spirit and extend it out to the community, helping our creditors and partners to stay afloat so that our relationship can continue for many more years.  #GuiseleyTogether we can help. 

Home sleeve sponsor

We have chosen to organise a "Pay It Forward" campaign, releasing a range of tickets, experiences and commercial opportunities to replace the income we have lost since football was, quite rightly, halted. The monies collected during this campaign will allow us to pay the creditors we currently owe and those we incur preparing the club for our first matches back in action.

Whilst the majority of us are at home, keeping ourselves and our families safe, there are many key workers continuing to keep us safe and well through stocking shelves, delivering items and managing our health. In our own small way we would like to give back something to those carrying out this vital work who live and work locally. 

For every £100 raised during this campaign we will donate an adult match ticket for the 2020/21 season to a key worker.

Club Chairman Gary Douglas said "Whilst the prospect of returning to normal life, including football, might seem a long way away, businesses are having to deal with the here and now, including cashflow. If we as a club can help in any way, we must. I would urge all of our fans, including those who might only visit Nethermoor once a season to commit to Pay It Forward. Let us show what a great community spirit there is in Guiseley, exemplified by the exceptional work carried out by Guiseley Community Foundation.”

Crowdfunder are offering their platform, free of charge, to allow us to pre-sell a variety of offers for cash now with the promise to redeem these at a later date, when football returns to Nethermoor. 

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
