As the 2020/21 season is underway, we would like to provide an update for supporters regarding a number of items of business.
The club was delighted to learn at the end of last week that our Insurers intended to make an interim payment in respect of the substantial losses the Company has endured over the last 7 months as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic and associated restrictions.
Whilst it is a small payment when set against the sizeable losses we have endured, it is heartening to know that we now enter a phase of negotiation with the appointed Loss Adjusters with a certainty of cover that previously was never confirmed.
We will update on the position once some tangible progress has been made in this regard.
Sales of season tickets came to an end last Friday and we would like to again place on record our thanks to supporters who have made purchases. We understand it is a tough time for everyone and the backing through buying season tickets is invaluable for the club moving forward.
The Ticket Office have been busy over the past few weeks and we will now review the opening hours in light of the sales coming to an end and update with further information.
With supporters not being able to attend matches we have put in place a much improved streaming package with our partners at Stream Digital.
The first two matches have seen a very positive uptake and we are always looking to improve the service to make it feel like you are as close to the action as possible.
Finally, Dee Promotions have continued their fantastic work in these difficult times which we are thankful for and they will be handing over a cheque of an incredible £25,000 for Youth Development shortly.
A portion of that money comes from the weekly 50/50 virtual half time draws and bonus balls which have continued to be a vital revenue stream.
There are exciting activities surrounding Christmas with Dee Promotions, so please keep an eye out for what is to come.
As always, the health of our supporters is at the forefront of our minds and we hope that everyone is still coping well and staying safe.
It’s been a strange time without supporters in the stands and it will never feel normal playing matches without your backing coming from the terraces.
We appreciate your backing from afar and are looking forward to the day fans can return to the Kilmac Stadium.
