The club has a number of fundraising initiatives throughout the season which are promoted on our News page. Below is information about our Squad Builder Fund and the Seals Lottery which are ongoing throughout the year.

If you have any ideas on how City Fans United could raise more money for the club, or if you want to help to raise money for the club, please email


Squad Builder Fund

Chester FC’s Squad Builder initiative enables fans to actively help develop the Club by making a regular donation which will go towards acquiring, coaching and developing players at the club.

We had already received over £12000 worth of annual donations. As the Club continues on its course to being sustainable at the highest level possible – why not aid Jon McCarthy’s transfer kitty?

It was down to the suggestions of you – the Chester fans – that the club decided to go ahead with the Squadbuilder plan.  So we would really appreciate your continued involvement to make it a success. Pledges made by fans helped bring players to the club already, and we hope that many more will follow courtesy of your generous donations.

It’s really easy to donate too. You can set up a Standing Order – see the link below to the form, download and return to the football club via the address quoted below.  Regular donations are particularly welcome as we can then plan on the basis of that income going forward.

But Standing Order isn’t the only way you can donate. You can give in person at the Chester FC Ticket Office, but please make sure that you leave your details with us and quote ‘Squadbuilder’ in all relevant correspondence, to help us keep track of donations.

You can also contribute via Bank Transfer too, but please ensure you quote Squadbuilder followed by your surname on any donation made – again, this will help us track all donations correctly.

Cheques will also be accepted, please make payable to City Fans United, quoting Squadbuilder on the reverse of the cheque.

Everyone who contributes to the Squadbuilder will be invited to regular update sessions with the Manager and his team – so you will be able to see first hand how your contribution is directly helping Chester FC on the pitch.  So please consider joining today and also urging any fellow fans to do likewise.  We will keep you posted on the running total raised.

We really appreciate your help and will ensure that the funds will be used to help bring in and develop the squad further as the club progresses.
