Non League: fans expected to support Non League weekend
With no Premier League or Championship games the ever popular NOn League Weekend takes place 6/7 September, with fans encouraged to support their local small team.
The aim for Non-League Day is to get as many fans through the turnstiles as possible. In the Vanaram League they hope to shatter the league's 2013 and 2012 attendance figures of 39,000 and 36,000 respectively. The Vanarama League are also be working with their official charity Prostate Cancer UK to raise funds by donating 10p for EVERY fan that attends a Conference game on Non-League Weekend. Based on last year's attendance this would generate at least £4000. However, if 50,000 fans attend a game then Vanarama will double their donation, making at least £10,000 for Prostate Cancer!
Matt Le Tissier has been enlisted to promote the weekend and the message is getting out ther on social media channels
