Nowadays it’s not a rare sight to see a club in financial trouble, and unfortunately for Irish football, Waterford United have slipped into financial difficulty for the second time in three years.
In a bid to raise €80,000 to €90,000, they have set up an online public funding account to save their club and aid them to be able to finish out the season.
When approaching €2,000 the web page updated a post urging donors to spread the word internationally.
“After just two days of our campaign we are fast approaching the €2000 mark which is fantastic.”
The next step is to please get the word out there across the globe. There are millions of Irish people and thousands of Waterfordians living across the world and we need their support to help our club. Please share and get the word out wherever you can.”
Waterford, who currently sit sixth in the SSE Airtricity League first division, have had to call on theirs supporters to bail their club out once again.
This isn’t an unusual sight for Blues supporters as of July 2013 they began a campaign to raise €50,000 to stop the club from being ‘wound-up’.
The club was founded in 1930 and has three teams – U17, U19 and Senior – all of whom are in danger of folding if the funds aren’t met.
