Non league club Daventry Town plan to host drive-in movies to raise much needed funds with no normal revenue incoming anytime soon.
The Southern League Division One Central club have come up with a unique experience to show new and classic movies each weekend and to also host some special events.
Daventry have said: These drive-in events will help raise much needed funds to support over 200 local children’s football activity and the many adult sides – enabling the club to maintain great facilities ready for when we can use them again in the future.
The Northamptonshire side will show new and classic films using a 9m x 7m screen on their pitch.
People will watch the films from their cars, with sound coming through their radio, and money raised used to support the club’s youth and adult sides.
“We’re repurposing their ground to allow for this to happen,” Ian Marriott, who runs Drive In Films, told BBC Radio Northampton.
“We’re working very hard with the groundsman – it’s been a challenge to persuade them but it’s in the middle of summer.
“It makes good use of their facilities and their bills aren’t stopping.”
After reading the non league club plan to host drive-in movies to raise funds, we hope others up and down the country can also do this if it is possible. Fingers crossed, as so many can benefit from it.Like what the Fan Banter have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
