The Aldershot Town Community Trust donated £5,000 to Aldershot Town FC to contribute towards the construction of a Community Stand. The stand has a capacity of two-hundred and fifty and is for the exclusive use of invited guests from the local community to encourage future supporters.
It is a unique concept in the Football League and funded through a grant from the Football Foundation and the support of Community Stakeholders. Stakeholders include Aldershot Town Football in the Community; The Aldershot Town FC Supporters Trust; The Children with Special Needs Foundation; Gold-station Jewellers & Parkside (Aldershot & District Mencap).
Whilst The Trust now no longer works in partnership with ATFC we are aware that there is often space in the stand if any community organisation would like to approach the club for tickets.
Alternatively, if any schools or Community groups would like to watch Reading FC play at home in one of their Championship matches then the Community Trust would be more than happy to organise this.
