Galway United have appealed for more investors to join their fund-raising “100 Club” scheme, which will allow it to realize the aims outlined in a three-year Strategic Plan announced recently.
The club is asking individuals or enterprises to pledge Eur100 per month to the club over the next three years, a scheme which would yield an extra Eur360,000 to the club by 2008.
A statement on the club’s website outlines the core objectives of the three-year plan as follows:
- Create a well managed and organised club capable of competing at the highest level
- Create a locally based squad of semi-professional players to which all local players can aspire to
-Secure the financial position of the club going forward
- Promote the development of soccer in the region at all levels
In return for a three-year commitment to regular investment, the 100 Club members of the Galway will:
- Feature on all programs printed
- Feature on a prominent display at Terryland Park
- Feature on a specially designed section of the club website
- Receive a regular newsletter by email, with latest Club news
- 5 Transferable Season tickets
- Participate in an annual excursion overseas for club members

why the fcuk am I reading this from a non-gufc website?
and, what 3 year fcuking plan annoucement, there was none??
these bunch of w*nkers are more decieving that the last bunch! I call on everyone in the 100 club so far to hold off on paying the club a penny until they have, at the very least, an open forum where they can answer the questions of the concerned supporters and public of Galway.
