FSA Community Award nomination for the Pilgrims
8th November 2019
Boston United and the club’s sports charity are excited to announce they have been shortlisted for a Football Supporters’ Association award for a second year running!
Boston United and Boston United Community Foundation have been shortlisted once again for The National Game Community Award alongside five other clubs – Bath F.C, Dagenham and Redbridge, Dulwich Hamlet, Stockport County and Whitehawk FC.
This is the second year the FSA (previously known as the Football Supporters’ Federation) have run the National Game Community Award, which highlights the variety of excellent community outreach work undertaken by non-league football clubs.
Those who are shortlisted are clubs whose innovation involves supporters and local partners in making a positive impact in their local communities – so we are very proud to be shortlisted for this award for a second year and it pays tribute to the amazing work we do with local communities and local partnerships, including Fans for Diversity.
Boston United pride themselves on being very proactive when it comes to engaging local communities and fans. We do this through a variety of initiatives, such as free tickets for local schools and members of our junior football teams, the annual Community Day, as well as last season’s Celebration Day against Curzon Ashton, where the club created a fun FanZone outside the stadium for all to enjoy, as well as offering free tickets to the game. We also joined forces with Fans for Diversity, helping to highlight their cause, and invited children and their families from a local Polish school.
A total of 18 awards are up-for-grabs across a variety of categories — 11 categories are open to a public vote, while seven categories (Away Day, Club Podcast, Fans for Diversity, Fanzine, Supporter Liaison Officer, Club Engagement and the National Game Community Award) will be decided by an FSA panel.
Further details on the Awards and how you can vote are available here.
The awards ceremony will take place on December 16th 2019 in London, so the club will keep our fans posted on the results when they are announced.
