Non-League Day returns!

Wed 4th Sep 2013 | Marketing & PR

Fans of Premier League and Football League clubs are once again being encouraged to jump on the Non-League bandwagon this weekend. 

With the international break upon us, there are no Premier League games this weekend, and with that in mind, the annual Non-League Day initiative is back. 

Non-League Day was set up by James Doe in 2010 as a social media experiment, after being inspired by a pre-season trip to Devon to watch Queens Park Rangers play at Tavistock. 

It has now grown to become an annual part of the football calendar, backed by Premier League and Football League clubs, MPs, celebrities, media organisations, charities and most importantly the Non-League clubs themselves and the fans that decide to turn up on the day. 

Always scheduled to coincide with an international break, Non-League Day gives fans across the country the chance to see what's going on at a club that might be on their doorstep which they may be unfamiliar with or even knew existed. 

Saturday provides an ideal opportunity for fans of top level football to attend a Non-League game. Even those who like to keep a casual eye on the Non-League scores without actually attending a game can discover the enjoyment of watching live grassroots football. 

Clubs across the Pyramid are taking part, with special offers and side attractions taking place. 

Clubs are hoping to dramatically boost their attendance figures, and hope that they might attract some more regular supporters as a result of the nationwide initiative.
