What are your thoughts.  I think it would be a good idea to give each person who bought one a certificate and have a wall with the names of everyone who took part in the new stand.

Great idea to raise funds and give the fans something of their own!

There is a similar thing in EPCOT in Florida, you can buy a plaque/tile that is erected on a wall where you go in - a great idea would be to buy the brick/tile and have some kind of engraving with your name.

Surely the club could arrange some sort of contract with a local engraver.

sounds like a good idea 25 quid prob about a fair price, they could let the fan sign the brick or something like that maybe?

Without it getting out of hand it needs to be administered correctly and having a standard theme throughout - the idea of an engraved plaque would be more favourable than signatures IMHO

25 pound is alright if you only intend on buying one brick but if like me you would have to buy 3 or 4 for me and the kids then
30-40 pounds is easier to swallow than 75-100 especially after buying new tops and season tickets

Why buy 3/4?

Share the brick

Been looking round the net at schemes at other football clubs and seems very popular.Most prices however seem to range in the ?40-?50 for a brick which is seems quite costly.Seen one which will let you have  14 characters in two rows so you have to question how much to engrave and  how much profit the club would make.No good it being ?10 if engraving costs that.
A seem to let you have what you like,Dedicate a brick to friends, family, your favourite  player past or present, or just yourself.
Also seen a scheme where a brick cost ?50 but if you couldnt afford in one go then you have the option of buying in ?1 brick tokens.Save them up get it put on later.


Paul is this something the support group could run rather than the club ?
heres another idea for flannerz...a virtual wall for the club site...say couple quid  a brick...might make few hundred towards funds ??
