Matchday Free Car Park Day ?

Post by BUSHEAD » Thu Feb 21, 2019 11:05 am

Just a musing, as someone who doesn't use the car park . Would a game of 'free parking' help attract more fans through the gate ?

Or do we have to charge every game ?

Just a thought.

Doesn't £1 for each parking fee go to Rugby Club? If so, they would have to agree or they may have to be paid in any event ( depending on terms of agreement ie 20% of fees raised or is it £1 per parking space used)

The car park is usually pretty full with paying fans. Not sure it would be a good idea to displace these with people parking for free.
"At a meeting held at the Grammar School on Friday last - Mr Phillip Wood M.A., in the chair - it was resolved to form an Association Football Club for Darlington and neighbourhood. The opinions of those present were so unanimous as to the desirability of this step, that a committee was formed to complete the organisation of the club, and Mr Craven, 17, Garden Street, was appointed secretary pro tem." - The Northern Echo, Monday 23rd July 1883
