Non League Owner To Pay Fans To Attend Match

Hull United bait Hull City fans with free football and money for nothing.

Hull United AFC owner Jamie Waltham, who is also the club’s manager, has promised to pay £2 to every fan who attends his side’s next home game.

Waltham, 33, is hoping to attract Hull City supporters who are disgruntled with the high cost of following a Premier League team.

He is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: “Everyone in Hull is really proud of what Hull City have achieved.

“But I speak to a lot of people who feel priced out and prices go through the roof when you are in the best league in the world.

“I’ve felt for a long time we needed a top non-league club and that’s our goal. Hull City started a long time ago by people playing at a similar level of football so I see this as the beginning of a journey for us and the fans that come along.

“I’m offering £2 to everyone that comes through the door, but if people come in and spend £4-5 then we could make a bit of money. We are doing pints of beer for £2, food at discounted prices and we want it to be as affordable as possible.

“If 500 people come through the door then I’ll pay out £1,000 because I feel that sometimes you have to give before you get back. It’s about offering an alternative and an incentive to come down and watching something a little bit different.”

Hull United currently play in the Humber Premier League, but Waltham has dreams of one day competing in the Football League.

They began the season with a 3-0 at Hessle Rangers.

Tonight, they host Hedon Rangers. Get on down if you fancy a free game of football and a £2 profit.
