Re: Non League Day done properly
In the past, when we have hosted Non League Days at home, a big effort has gone into promoting our admission offers with pro-clubs. This has involved publicising our games with local Pro-club supporters trusts, plaguing professional clubs' forums and even targeting London based supporters groups for the likes of Newcastle (when we had Paul Robinson playing ever so briefly for us) to try and bring in as many people as possible. All of this was done by a single individual.
Certainly, Dulwich have to be congratulated for their efforts yesterday, nearly 3000 is a heck of a gate for a game that would usually get 3-400. Seeing the success of 'pay what you want', I imagine next season many clubs will copy that template. If we are fortunate enough to be at home for it, then now is the time to get thinking about different ways to get as many people through the gate at SJP, or Earlsmead, as humanly possible.
If anyone reading this has any ideas, please let any member of the Trust board know.
