Chester Agree To Take Part In Play-Offs

Chester FC have decided to take part in the National North League Play-Offs. They are the sixth and final club to agree.

The club had originally said they would take a detailed look at the financial implications of taking part but with help from the players, in particular, feel they can afford the challenge.

'The players have taken the very generous step to donate their contractual entitlements back to the Club to enable us to take part, again demonstrating how our special Club continues to pull together in the face of adversity.

The Club will incur significant expense as a result of participating in the play-offs due to the testing requirements, staff returning from furlough leave and Covid-19 safety measures, however we have taken steps to mitigate this and believe this decision reflects the wishes and ambitions of our members.'

Meanwhile Chester will be launching #InItTogether to raise funds specifically for the play-offs.

#InItTogether invites fans to contribute the equivalent of a match ticket towards the costs of the play-off campaign, which could reach £30,000 depending on the team’s progress.
