Just hours before 2500 Shots fans converge on Fratton Park for the FA Cup first round tie against Portsmouth, Aldershot Town have launched their own BAFTAs to attract new supporters to another forthcoming Hampshire derby.
The home Vanarama Conference fixture against Eastleigh, on Saturday 22 November, has been designated as the Club’s first BAFTA game – for fans to Bring A Friend To Aldershot.
Commercial Manager, Mark Butler, said: “Shots fans are the greatest ambassadors that this Club could have, and we want you to spread the word and share the love that you feel for Aldershot Town. I remember how I was hooked after my first visit here as a fan so many years ago, and it would be great if you could bring that one person who you’ve always thought should be an Aldershot Town supporter. You know they would love the atmosphere if only you got them to come to a game – and this is your chance.
“My ambition is to double the attendance, but even if we can get another few hundred people through the gate for this one game it would make them one of the biggest sponsors of this Football Club. So can you help?”
Fans can use social media to help the cause – post your own video challenges to a friend, colleague or family member, or tag them on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #ShotsBAFTA.
