Could be seen as a "pay as you play" given their performances this year.

Wonder if the government help applies to football clubs.

Scottish clubs holding emergency meetings tomorrow.

But I see that Raith Rovers and Partick Thistle are already appealing to fans for money. Have to say I'm a bit surprised about the Jags given their recent windfall.

Every club apart from Celtic will struggle with little cash reserves. Ours especially.

From what I could see was that she wants a million for her own team.

How much is Ann Budge worth?

How much does she believe in Hearts FC?

Why did she sign off players' contracts on ludicrous terms?

Why is she the first to bring out the begging bowl?






It's bloody tough being a legend

I know all clubs will struggle but I'd be especially worried if I was a The rangers supporter.


I think they will have plenty of bog roll. 😂. That is their hedge fund.

ipswichpar: you raise a question many would like answered.

Rishi Sunak has talked at length about help for businesses as has the Scottish Government.

I am unclear whether that included our football clubs, given they are businesses.

I'd be very worried if I was a Pars supporter!

East End Park is a symbol of all that is DAFC.

The one "advantage" we have is that we only have 3 home games left. I do not know exactly how much money is lost per game, but we are loosing aproximately 1000 walk up fans per game which roughly be about £15000. However that doesn't include money from Stephens and hospitality. It would be far worse if this crisis had hit at Christmas or even earlier. We will feel the financial pain but possibly not as bad as other clubs.

Do we get money from Stephens? I'd assume they pay the club for the space so it would be them losing money rather the club.

No we don't get any of the takings
They rent the space each season.

If they rent in per match it could be costing us money

No they don’t. As was explained at the supporters council meeting they pay per head (attendance) so is costing the club money.

Given that the dafc was forced to close temporarily until this passes, I am hopeful today's announcements will cover some of the salaries of the lads.
