Buy the pitch??

Recommended Posts

I''ve purchased a square in memory of my Grandad,the photo shows off my seats lovely, £25 and worth every penny my Grandad would have loved the idea of owning a piece of the pitch even if it is only for a year!!! [:D]

[quote user="Salopian"] Questions:1) A square yard of living turf will be quite heavy and awkward to lift. Does everyone have to collect their own square?2) Presumably they are going to relay the pitch, so hasn''t lasted long - I hadn''t heard, so the money raised will go towards the new pitch?3) Why don''t they sell square feet pieces at a lower price, and then those who want to put a deck chair on it can buy more than one piece, and others pay less? This also overcomes the problem mentioned in point 1 above.[/quote]That''s the point.  You don''t get anything, you are just "sponsoring" part of the pitch.  From £25 right up to £1000 to sponsor the centre spot/penalty spots.  For a year.It''s utter horse shizzle.

Absolutely hilarious!

Although the less funny thing is that with Norwich, anything is possible and it doesn''t actually seem that far fetched......

God some suckers are actually buying into this sh*t. Why not just get your monthly salary payment paid into NCFC plc''s bank account (mmmm, where''s David McNally''s telephone number, I can feel a royalty coming on here).

I guess it''s just another form of lottery...... but really!

And what is so special about the 100 prizes. A night out in Yellows for you and your mates, you pay for all the drinks and we''ll throw in a bag of pork scratchings absolutely free!

I''m actually gobsmacked that people would even consider buying into this, I could understand something like this working well at Old Trafford with all the United fanboys going nuts everytime Rooney stepped onto their square of the pitch, "oh look Rooney is on my land again, quick take a picture"... But at Norwich?... Shocking.

Isn''t it about personal choice?  No one is forcing you but if others want to then it is up to them surely?

Why are some fans so negative? It is a fun idea and those taking part know that plus it will make some much needed money for the club.

On The Ball City. Any idea that raises a bit of finance should get a positive and supportive response. Individual fans can make their own mind up about which activity they will support.

Quite an odd thing to do, not sure if many other clubs do this?

Not the first time this has happened, i stil have my piece from the year we went up, they ripped the pitch up to move it and put the plastic stuff in ! fantastic idea, great way to raise some extra money.

Surprised nobody has ever thought of it before.

What happens on 31/12/10 can you buy the same piece again, or does it go on general sale, would you still be able to keep the photo?.

[quote user="Lord Norwich"]knowing the board they will probably sell you a square and then send you a annual "square upkeep bill" asking for £100 towards mowing it and Norwich City Council will want rates paying on it.[/quote]You are now putting ideas into peoples heads.

Personally I think it''s a bit of a laugh and targetted in the lead up to Xmas to get people to buy plots for each other.I fell for it and tried to buy my brother the plot to the left of Huckerby - problem is they don''t take Maestro and so I couldn''t pay.  Pretty shabby arrangement to use an on-line payment company that doesn''t accept the most popular debit card in the country!

Got an acre already [:D]

[/quote]I''m thinking of buying a couple or three acres,  bung some caravans on them and rent them out on time shares.

Not really surprised that they won''t take the car as payment.

Try selling your limo first then you can give them the cash......
