KEEPING THE FAITH

Bangor City Supporters' Association is a body independent of Bangor City Football Club, but with a real voice in running the Club. The Supporters' Association Chair is automatically a member of the Board of the Football Club and there is now a regular exchange of views and news between Supporters' Association members and the directors of the Club.
Formed in 2004, the Association holds social and fundraising events, such as Sportsman's Dinners, Casino Nights, Annual 7-a-side Tournament, Veterans' Cup, Annual Duck Race, BBQs, Matchday Raffle, Big Prize Raffles, SA merchandise and many other events aimed at getting supporters together, raisisng funds for all sections of the Club - and having a good time!
Funds raised by the Supporters' Association have already contributed towards the signing-on fees of important first-team players, assisting with the financial committments of the club as agreed by members and have also purchased over £250-worth of training equipment for the Club's Youth Academy. The Supporters' Association has also received shares from the Club in recognition of the increasing support that it has been able to provide.
In addition to helping the Club, members of the Supporters' Association can take advantage of offers of organised travel to away matches (contact Dewi Osian on 0772 5690984, or Geraint Jones 07950 797197) discounts on Club merchandise, and season ticket discounts for unwaged fans who are members of the Association.

Meetings are held every first Thursday of the month in The Regency Hotel (opposite Bangor Railway Station).
