Bulls Look To Boost Revenue To Help Football Budget

James Watts, Hereford's General Manager, is now back working for the club after being removed from the government's job retention scheme. He said that a lot of work will take place at Edgar Street during the next few weeks including pitch maintenance, while the club's primary focus will be on commercial revenue and retail operations while also preparing the stadium to be Covid-19 compliant.

However, he added that until there is guidance around social distancing rules in stadiums regarding capacities, the club is not in a position to sell season tickets.

"Following a difficult time for all football clubs, it is a very important period of time for Hereford FC and we have to look at all opportunities for revenue generation," said Watts.

"Although we are estimating football will return in September, at this moment in time we do not know what football will look like so we as a club are investigating every way possible to give Josh and Steve the biggest budget possible."

The club are still working towards the Stadium Fest concert taking place at the end of August following the latest government announcements.

The event is set to take place on August 30 after it was postponed in May due to Covid-19, with National League football looking to return in September.

The new 2020/21 replica shirts will be on sale soon following agreements with adidas and Sporting Touch.
