Having lived in Bournemouth for at least twenty decades before I made a move to Australia for work, I felt lost without my home team Bournemouth FC. I lived hoping for a day when I would be back at the Dean Grounds cheering my team on surrounded by other like-minded people and it is in this hope that the idea of a Fan Club struck me. I looked around and found other people from Bournemouth who were as into the team as I was and together, we came up with a group. Currently, we have fifty members of our fan club, and we hope that this number grows in the coming years. All our activities gear towards cheering our team on and helping them in any way that we can. Our fan base keeps growing over time, and in the coming years, we will be in a position to produce magazines, organize trips to Bournemouth and acquire tickets at discounted prices. Join us today and be part of the team.
Functions of our club
Watching matches – Given that our main aim is to cheer on Bournemouth as they make more milestones in the Premier League, we make a point to stay updated on all their achievements. When they sign on a player, we ensure that we find out the minute that contract is on the table to help us stay in touch with them. We come together each time Bournemouth is playing against another team, and we do it every time without fail. We meet up at a central location where we can watch the game, cheer and shout as much as we want to and enjoy some recreational facilities. Organization of the place where we will watch the match takes place weeks before the game, and everyone gets to contribute an idea, and the majority wins. We get to wear Bournemouth jerseys while watching the game and this makes the entire experience fun.
Events – Other than meeting up for matches, we also organize events where we get to celebrate significant milestones in the club such as winning cups and high seasons. We contribute a little money which goes to the club kitty, and when we have such events, the drinks and activities get paid for using this money. We plan to organize trips to Bournemouth where we will have the opportunity to watch the game amidst other fans, and this is something we can do at least once a year. The more our fan club grows, the more significant our recognition and we can do more for the organization then.
