Bamber Bridge join Stay at Home - Be at the Game project

Bamber Bridge have become the latest NPL club to sign up to the Stay at Home - Be at the Game project.

The feel-good fundraiser gives fans the chance to have their cardboard cutout at the Irongate Stadium, helping to raise funds for the club.

A club spokesperson said: “We've already had an amazing response to our Crowdfunding appeal which is now over £6000, but If we can fill our 500 capacity main stand we will receive over £7,000, more than doubling what we've raised so far."

How it works:

* Visit
* Register on the website
* Choose Bamber Bridge FC on the drop down menu
* Take your selfie on the website
* Pay for your cardboard cutout
* Done!


Cardboard fans are priced at £25 each with a portion of the proceeds going to the club and also to a local charity.

There are family purchases available with discounts: 
£67.50 - Family of 3 (10% discount)
£90 - Family of 4 (10% discount)

The initiative has been adopted by clubs across Europe, including some German Bundesliga clubs to give the appearance that games are being played with supporters present, despite playing behind closed doors with Borussia Mönchengladbach presenting the highest support for the project so far.

The cardboard fans will be displayed at the ground for as long as we can allow before football resumes. Once football resumes and Irongate is open you will be able to collect your personal cut out.
