City Fans United announce Launch Event

City Fans United, the name given to the new fans’ group for Chester City FC, will be holding its formal launch on 22nd October at 8 pm at Divas Showbar (formerly the Royal Mail Club) Station Road Chester.

The CFU launch night will be hosted by Radio 5 Live sports commentator Charlie Lambert.

Following recent public meetings, fans of Chester City Football Club have called for all of the fans’ groups to unite under one banner. The new unified fans group, City Fans United, has formed from the merger of the two largest fans’ groups, Chester City Supporters Trust and the Chester City Independent Supporters Association, with the full support of the other supporters’ groups. City Fans United is formally launching on 22nd October.

Chairman of the City Fans United working party, Michael Poole, says: “The CFU working party welcome the challenge of bringing all the fans together in this way. All of the fans need to speak with one voice to better represent the interest of the fans of Chester City Football Club and to help the club to move forward.”

Mr. Poole continued: “Our launch night will give people the opportunity to hear about City Fans United; its aims and objectives; the Junior Blues, our youth organisation, and most importantly it will give fans the opportunity to let City Fans United know what their priorities are. We will also be accepting membership applications on the night.

Everyone is welcome – in some respects this is the most important meeting of Chester City supporters for a decade and we would encourage everyone who has an interest in Chester City Football Club to attend.”

For Chester City fans reading this, it's your chance to make yourselves heard and help steer CFU in the future, so make sure you're there at the meeting on the 22nd October.
