Show your support for our town’s football club with a new investment opportunity

17 Jul 2017

Stevenage FC has today launched a new initiative, inviting interested local people and businesses to invest in the development of the new North Stand.

Stevenage FC Mini-bond will raise funds for the new stand, and allow fans and local people to demonstrate their support for their Club and pride in their town. You can find out more about it here.

The five-year mini-bond - similar to those used already by rugby and cricket clubs to raise the funds needed to finance infrastructure and club development - is effectively a loan from fans and investors to Stevenage FC, at rates that are good for both the Club and the investors. Fans can put their money in, be paid interest every year over the term of the bond at a rate of 4% p.a., and get their money back at the end. There’s an alternative option to increase the interest payable to 8% p.a. if the interest is taken in the form of a club credit which can be used on club hospitality, for example, or in the club shop.

The Club has secured a grant of £450,000 from the Football Foundation towards the redevelopment of the North Stand. The new development will replace the old north stand terrace with a 1,600 modern all-seater stand, showcasing Boro's transition from former non-league team to an ambitious, forward-thinking English Football League club.
