Following a season without fans, we sent our award-winning matchday programme Fleet Review online, free to all season-ticket holders and streaming customers. We have continued to offer it for free, online only, through this pre-season as we prepared for 2021/22.
Many clubs are now offering their matchday programmes on an online-only basis due to print costs, fewer sales of print in general in the digital age, and accessibility on phones and other devices.
We have listened to our supporters and regular Fleet Review buyers who have requested a hard-copy/print version as they return to the Kuflink Stadium and we are pleased to say the programme will return in print form for our anniversary season.
We are, of course, subject to the same print and operational costs as other clubs and so would encourage supporters who do wish to purchase the programme to buy a season subscription.
This season’s Fleet Review will be a collectable, perfect-bound set of 20 home league programmes with printed spines that when stacked together will form the Fleet 75th souvenir logo. They will also feature a different, matt-laminated card cover each issue depicting a programme cover of old from our 75-year history.
A season subscription will cost £60 and entitle you to a reserved programme each home game including cup games, which can be collected from reception prior to the game, as well as an online version.
If you wish to order more copies or buy them on an individual basis (at the existing price of £3), they can also be pre-ordered alongside your matchday ticket or via the EUFC online shop. Due to delivery timings, we are unable to offer a postal service for programmes but if remote buyers do not mind receiving their copies after matchday, we can mail them out for a small cost to cover postage – please email email@example.com if so.
In order to continue to offer a print version of the programme while making it cost-effective, there will be a shorter print run so a subscription or advance order of the programme will be the surest way of guaranteeing a copy.
The club is also seeking sponsorship of the programme for the entire season (details below), with the benefits below added into the package:
