We need your ideas! 6th September – Non League Day – KHFC vs Gateshead!
Saturday 6th September 2014 is this seasons'”Non League Day”!
The Non League Day was setup in 2010 and has continued to grow each year, with support coming from the Premier League, Football League, MP’s, Celebrities, and Charities.
On Non League Day this season, Kidderminster Harriers will be entertaining Gateshead in a league fixture at Aggborough Stadium and we at KHIST want to promote this and would like your help!
With it being international weekend and all of our neighbouring larger clubs having a free weekend, we are in discussions with Kidderminster Harriers and other parties to promote this day at Aggborough, to get as many neighbouring fans through the Aggborough turnstiles as possible!
There will be a meeting taking place to discuss this on Tuesday 5th August. If any supporters have any ideas or suggestions that can help make this day even more of a success then please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org before this meeting on Tuesday, as we’d love to hear from you!
More about Non League Day…
Non-League Day was set up by James Doe in 2010 as a social media experiment, after being inspired by a pre-season trip to Devon to watch Queens Park Rangers play at Tavistock. It has now grown to become an annual part of the football calendar, backed by Premier League and Football League clubs, MPs, celebrities, media organisations, charities and most importantly the non-league clubs themselves and the fans who turn up on the day.
Always scheduled to coincide with an international break, Non-League Day provides a platform for clubs to promote the importance of affordable volunteer led community football while giving fans across the country the chance to show support for their local non-league side.
Many non-league clubs are almost exclusively volunteer run, with money taken at the turnstiles often funding thriving youth set-ups, projects and facilities which are of benefit to the whole community. The level of skill on offer at non-league grounds will never compare to that at the Emirates Stadium or Old Trafford, for example, but there are other sides to the experience, from which the smaller club will always win hands down. The vast majority of games still kick off at 3pm, ticket prices are realistic, you can often stand (and drink!) anywhere in the ground and will always be guaranteed a warm welcome by people who run their clubs for a love of the game.
Whether you’re a Premier League or Championship fan without a game, a League One or League Two supporter who can’t make an away trip, or just someone who is curious about what their local club has to offer, there is sure to be something to interest everyone.
You can make a difference on Non-league Day. Get involved!
