Durham City AFC are looking for sponsorship to support the club’s new committee as they work hard to improve the club.

 

Durham City Association Football Club has a proud history, dating back to 1918. The club played in the Football League Third Division North between 1921-1928, and as recent as 2009 they played in the Premier division of the Northern Premier League, which is Step 3 in the football pyramid system. Sadly today, Durham City AFC plays at Step 8 in the pyramid system. Years of poor management has seen the club fall through the leagues, but that is about to reverse! With a new hard working and totally focused committee, the club is aiming to get back to the higher steps in the football pyramid system. Off the field of play, the committee wants to embrace the local community and bring everyone together. Here are some of the short / long term plans:

  • 100% fan-owned not-for-profit football club
  • A Club that exists to support the community
  • Links with social enterprise through a joint hospitality venture with a charity who employs challenged and less able people to run the space
  • Community activities such as walking football supporting mental health and wellbeing
  • New sections within the club to include disability football, junior football and ladies football

Durham City AFC plays a role as a force for good in the local community, and to further demonstrate this is we aim to become the ‘true people’s club’. This means that the club will be owned equally by its fans. The funding on offer will help us to begin our short & long term journey.
