Berwick Rangers Supporters Club

Over the past 12 months, Berwick Rangers Football Club has been unable to welcome supporters into matches due to the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in a significant loss of revenue - particularly when it comes to match sponsorship and hospitality bookings.

As one of the club's supporters organisations, Berwick Rangers Supporters Club acknowledges the hard work being made by the Directors of the Football Club to generate revenue in these difficult financial times and trying to offset as much of those losses as possible.

At the Supporters Club, we run our own fundraising initiatives - including the Monthly Draw to win £1,000 each month and the Half Time Draw during every home game. However, with just one home game during the month of February and, as a result, just one opportunity to host a Half Time Draw, we thought it would be great to get involved in this EcoRacing balloon race to help to raise some funds and assist the club with its continued progression on and off the pitch.

To buy some balloons in the race, which begins at 12pm on Valentine's Day (February 14th), please create an account, then buy as many balloons as you like at £3 per balloon. You can then design your balloon(s) taking into account the shape, helium content and more. This matters as the balloon race is guided by real-time weather conditions, so may be worth doing some research in the build-up!

While there is an overall competition with a first prize of £500 for the balloon that travels the furthest, we'll also be running an in-house competition for everybody who has signed up to raise funds for the Supporters Club, with a £100 prize on offer.

With the exception of a 21.7% admin fee and the £100 prize, the money raised will come direct to the Supporters Club, which will then help to support the Football Club.

We hope you can join in the fun and help make our first forage into virtual balloon racing a success!

Our fundraising target is: £300

Gross monies raised so far: £3

Supporters so far: 1
