Football, no matter what division or league it is being played in, cannot exist without fans. If the fans end up disappearing, then football will not last long. Football, unfortunately, has turned into a business and for business to survive there needs to be a steady income. So, for football clubs, where does this revenue come from? Well, it comes from fans buying club merchandise and tickets. You might believe that sponsors will save them, but nobody will sponsor a club that has no fans. Therefore, it is very important for clubs to keep their fans happy and this is where the Egham Town Supporters Trust comes into action.
What is the Point of the Egham Town Supporters Trust?
The Egham Town Supporters Trust was founded over two decades ago and each member is an avid fan of the club. Every now and then they will get together with club officials and discuss matters that fans have asked them to bring up. Additionally, the members will discuss ways that they can improve Egham Town Football Club as a whole to ensure that fans get the best football experience when they turn up to watch a game.
