Always scheduled to coincide with an international break, Non-League Day provides a platform for clubs to promote the importance of affordable volunteer led community football while giving fans across the country the chance to show support for their local non-league side.
It has now grown to become an annual part of the football calendar, backed by Premier League and Football League clubs, MPs, celebrities, media organisations, charities and most importantly the non-league clubs themselves and the fans who turn up on the day.
Special incentives are on offer to entice more people to experience the game at non league level.
This Saturday, as the Nailers take on Daventry Town, there are a number of initiatives on offer, including
- All children Under 14 admitted free
- BTFC season ticket holders can bring a friend for free
- Derby County season ticket holders will be admitted for £5
- A bucket collection for Prostate Cancer UK (Non League Day's official charity partner)
So, why not sample the unique atmosphere of a non league game and join us for our match against our visitors from Daventry Town
