Evo-Stik South Premier side Dorchester Town have launched a new fundraising initiative titled ‘Pitch for the Community’ in a bid to raise £15,000 towards the proposed installation of a 3G pitch at their Avenue Stadium.
The Magpies are selling 100 hypothetical squares of the pitch for £50 each with the proceeds going towards a new plastic surface.
The Dorchester Town Council and Dorset County Council have both agreed to match each square sold meaning they are worth £150 to the club.
The scheme, put forward by supporter and member Cameron Dabbs, is open to anyone, individual or business, and in return they will receive their name, or nominated name, in a section of a pitch that will appear on the club website, on the club social media, in the match day programme and on a board at the stadium.
The club is looking to install a 3G pitch this summer which they say will “transform the club with use on the pitch going from 6 hours a week 40 weeks a year to 80 hours per week 52 weeks a year” with the Magpies becoming a football hub for the local area.
