The last few weeks have been full of ups and downs with regards to the play-off situation. Finally, now Weymouth FC have the decision that they will be able to take part, albeit not in the way they would have liked, but at least they now have the chance to compete. While the club is in a good financial place, the play-offs come at a large additional financial cost. These not only comprise the cost of testing but also the associated costs that they face in order to be compliant with the Government’s COVID-19 regulations. Weymouth FC obviously want to give Mark; the players and you their brilliant supporters every opportunity to build on the success this season deserves.
Having planned and budgeted for next season and to avoid potentially leaving themselves with a large shortfall. They now need your help. Based on the information they have been given by the league and the government the additional costs are anticipated to be in the region of £50,000. I am sure you will appreciate without a crowd in the stadium and other matchday income this would leave a big void. The excellent Take Two feature has raised over £5,000, which is brilliant start and gets them up and running. If they are going to participate in the play-offs they need your help so they can remain competitive next season.
They are putting together other ideas to raise money from streaming the game subject to TV rights through to a special edition play-off home shirt. They will not stop fighting for the right to compete, let’s face it this club has had to fight plenty in the past decade to even exist. They are all fans at this wonderful club and now they can all play their part to realise the dream many thought would never be seen again in those dark days.
