Any money that we make goes back into Northampton Town FC related activities via sponsorships and donations.
As we have most seasons, we have donated a significant figure to the football club before the start of the 2019/20 season. This means that, since the travel club formed in January 2000, we are proud to have raised over £211,000 for The Cobblers.
This year's money covers the sponsorship of two home games, advertising (in the programme, pitch side and all around Sixfields) and for 2019/20, like last season, we are the official sponsors of manager, Keith Curle.
We regularly sponsor games. In 2018/19 we were sponsors for the games against Forest Green Rovers in October and Exeter City in March. In 2017/18 we sponsored the Scunthorpe United and Rochdale fixtures and in 2016/17 we covered the games against Fleetwood Town and Bury. This year we will be in 1897 Suite for the Grimsby Town game in November and the Morecambe game in January. At the Morecambe game on the 18th January 2020 we will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the formation of Sixfields Travel Club.
In April 2018 we donated £1,000 to the 'Football to Amsterdam' fundraising cycling event to sponsor the Northampton Town cyclists which included chairman, Kelvin Thomas. This year we sponsored the same event by donating £500 to cover the support van. Last season we also sponsored the Legends Evening in the restaurant at the football club. This was an extremely popular evening where diners got to hear many tales regaled by Graham Carr, Ray Warburton, Ian Sampson, Neil Grayson and Andy Woodman.
At the end of the 2016/17 season we paid for and sponsored the disabled football tournament held at Sixfields Stadium. In May 2019 we did so again and provided £700 for the trophies and medals for the competitors. Most fans will have noticed the seats going back into the East Stand in April 2015. Sixfields Travel Club helped pay for those seats.
Over the years we have also sponsored many players such as Marco Gabbiadini and Ivan Toney as well as members of the management team including John Deehan and Stuart Gray. This year we are doing so again and proudly sponsoring manager Keith Curle.
We will continue our fund raising efforts whilst you, the fans, continue to travel with us. Thank you for your support.
