PUNKERTAINMENT in aid of the FC United Development Fund

Punkertainment, the brainchild of FC United member and former kitman, George Hayden, is an initiative to bring together individual groups of supporters by providing regular entertainment and at the same time raise some much needed funds for FC United’s Development Fund (DF).

Punkertainment, the brainchild of FC United member and former kitman, George Hayden, is an initiative to bring together individual groups of supporters by providing regular entertainment and at the same time raise some much needed funds for FC United’s Development Fund (DF).

“Back in the halcyon days of 2005 – 2010, it was the supporters that were at the forefront for fundraising. It was Punk style, inclusive to all and we were pretty damned good at it." explains George. “So it’s time to rewind the clock and organise fun activities that bring supporters together”

In May, George kicked-off the fundraising efforts with a Euro 16 Predictor League which saw 91 supporters taking part, including 10 Junior Members, helping to raise £480 for the Development Fund. The top predictor ‘Westbeard’ won £250 and Harland Wood won a season ticket for being top predictor in the junior section.



No sooner had the money been added to the DF coffers, George was at it again with the next fundraising initiative. This time ‘The Ten Division Love Song’.

“Remember the days we use to watch out for the results from Winsford and Cheadle in the NW Counties?” asks George, “Well renew that interest by entering Punkertainment’s very own Dream Team Type Competition in aid of the Development Fund.”

Here’s the concept

- Each entrant has a budget of £110K.
- You buy 1 team from each of the 10 Divisions. (From the North West Counties to The Premier League)
- Earn points on the back of their performances.
- 10 Teams, 10 Leagues......
- £10 Entry Fee

For full entry details and a list of team prices please email

This is a season long competition, you send just one email listing your teams, no predictions, just sit back and watch how your teams are performing.

JOIN THE DF Team

FC United are looking for volunteers to join the Development Fund Team to develop new and innovative ways of raising money to be used for the development of the ground at Broadhurst Park.

If you are interested in joining the DF Team or indeed have any fundraising ideas please email board member Nathan Ellis-Scott at .
