WHAT’S ON | Chester vs Buxton
There’s plenty on offer in and around the Deva Stadium this weekend as we host Buxton!
Here’s What’s On…
This weekend’s game at the Deva Stadium against Buxton is our annual Academy Day!
The day is dedicated to Chester FC Academy and during half-time, we will be recognising the Academy’s achievements across the 2022/23 campaign when we welcome the players and coaches onto the pitch, where we encourage supporters to give them a fantastic reception.
The fixture will also see players from the Academy volunteering their time to host a bucket collection, with every penny going back into the department to continue the incredible work that is done year on year.
Before the game, raffle tickets will be on sale around the ground with the winning ticket claiming a pair of Chester FC hospitality tickets for a fixture of their choosing for next season.
Finally, one Academy player will be the first ever recipient of the ‘Peter Mitchell Trophy’, organised by the Senior Blues.
Outside the Blues Bar will play host to some live music before the game, as we’re delighted to welcome back Definitely KB, The Indie/Britpop Tribute act from 12.30pm.
Kelvin covers all the biggest bands from the 90’s era, such as Oasis, Stone Roses, The Verve, The Smiths, Paul Weller and many more. Come along early and have a listen!
