Another interesting idea from the Dons Trust. They seem to come up with something like this every few years. Obviously it hits future revenue.

I think the National Trust do a Life memberships...but they bank on a reasonable idea of how long their typical visitors have left.

They do. My ex-wife‚Äôs grandmother bought us life memberships. Think we must have been well below the average age ūüėĀ.

Think it’s very much specific to their particular circumstances & need for a big cash injection in the short term.

Fair play to them though, always innovative in how they approach things and I was amazed at the amount of money they raised from fans to fund their new ground.

They did something similar to finance the purchase of the lease on Kingsmeadow.

So basically they have a 5m hole in their budgets and if they dont get it paid off or stay in League 1 they will be on thin ice.
Sounds like they heading into a financial downward spiral to me.

Yeah, that’s what I just said wasn’t it.

Not sure something similar would work, or necessarily be needed, here but shows what can be achieved when you approach recurring, annual issues like season tickets with some fresh thinking.

Yeah I wasn’t suggesting it was something we should do. Just that there are all sorts of ideas out there. Ways that a fan owned club can operate and cover non-recurrent costs.

They don’t have a £5m hole in their budgets. It’s just a cheaper way of covering a capital cost than a commercial loan.

Obviously it will impact on their revenue down the line but they have allowed for that in their planning.

They’re expecting a £1m loss this season.
