CHORLEY Football Club have issued a final call for businesses wishing to sign up to the CFC 200 Club.

More than a hundred companies and individuals have already joined the race to become the Magpies’ home shirt sponsors for next season.

And with Garry Flitcroft’s title-chasing Magpies closing in on promotion to the Skrill North, club director Jeremy Lee is expecting a late rush of interest ahead of next week’s prize draw.

“Once again, the CFC 200 Club is proving immensely popular with the local business community,” said Lee.

“There’s a real buzz around the club at the moment so the chance to become our home shirt sponsor next season – hopefully in the Skrill North – is a big attraction for local businesses.”

The format for this year’s 200 Club is the same as before: the club has 200 golden tickets up for grabs, and each one costs £200.

Every company or individual that buys a ticket will have a chance of winning the top prize, which is a sponsorship package worth £15,000.

In addition, there are also nine runners-up prizes, ranging from hospitality packages, advertising boards on the ground, and corporate season tickets.

All members automatically receive a number of exclusive benefits, including two free tickets for the CFC 200 Club Gala Evening on Friday April 11, free tickets to the Magpies’ final home game against Marine, and entry into the CFC 200 Hall of Fame.

Anyone wanting to purchase a ticket is advised to call the club’s commercial manager John Derbyshire on 07966 308578 or club director Lee on 07774 197303.
