    Story

    The current climate has had a massive impact on everyone’s life and livelihoods, football and in particular non-league football clubs have not been immune to this.

    Brighouse Town has always tried to work within its means and not be over ambitious when trying to achieve any targets.

    While operating at step 4 we have strived to stay within our means and cut our cloth accordingly.

    Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, like all businesses, we have had to shut down, which has resulted in all future income which the club relies on to cover its operating costs becoming non-existent.

    This has resulted in us having to give away nearly all our club stock due to use by dates and the likelihood that the current situation is due to last several months.

    Match day revenue and local sponsorship account for nearly all of the club’s revenue, Since the 1st of February -until the season was suspended, we had 1 home game.

    We still had 4 home games to play, along with the local schools finals and two well attended major local amateur finals that are played at the ground at the end of the season, all of which are essential revenue for the club.

    With the season being cancelled this has meant all future income for this season has ceased.

    This has led to the club having a void in our income as existing bills and future bills still need to be paid.

    The current situation is a threat to many football club’s continuation and existence and we are no different. We are looking for help from the football family the local community and business to help the football club fill this gap.

    Without the community, Brighouse doesn’t exist. Everyone at the football club thanks you for your support any amount no matter how small will go towards ensuring the future of the club,

    We have set up a just giving page for donations to be made.

    While football isn’t a priority right now, as a nation we will get through this and it’s important to local communities that when we do come out the other side their football club is still healthy and in existence.

    The priority is that we return to normal by staying home and saving lives.

    Brighouse Town would like to send our thanks to the NHS and all the people working on the front line, these people are truly heroes keeping the country going and risking their lives to keep people safe.

    Stay home save lives!

      Good luck & thank you for providing such a great facility for the local community. The scroats who recently vandalised the ground/equipment are beneath contempt.
