Your chance to sponsor leading anti-racism initiative
Dagenham & Redbridge FC are looking for an official sponsor to support their ‘Daggers Against Racism’ fixture against Rochdale on 12 January.
The League Two side, who have been running the annual initiative since 2010, will be encouraging fans to ‘sign up against racism’ and support the club’s work in the local community.
A bumper crowd is expected at the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham Stadium as the club slash ticket prices to as little as 50p for standing concessions and just £2.50 for
standing adult tickets.
The Daggers were recently left devastated after their supporters’ club hut containing “priceless” programmes from past decades was destroyed in an arson attack. A VIP box was also broken into with pipes being ripped off the toilet walls.
“The collection of programmes destroyed had been the result of 10 years hard work by two of our most dedicated supporters,” said the club’s managing director Steve Thompson.
“It was recognised as one of the best in the country and an individual or individuals looking for something valuable have in fact destroyed a collection of programmes that was priceless.
“My heart goes out to the two supporters involved. Some of the programmes are irreplaceable.”
