Super Vale Abroad and the Foundation are inviting Port Vale fans to “sit in the company of legends” by purchasing a Port Vale cut-out to display at the stadium.
A statement reads:
Supporters’ group Super Vale Abroad, working in partnership with the Port Vale Foundation Trust, are offering all supporters the opportunity to sit at Vale Park in the company of Port Vale Legends.
With all games being played behind closed doors due to Government restrictions, SVA invites fans to purchase a life size Valiant Cutout, to be positioned on a seat in the Railway Paddock. A designated camera facing area has been mapped out, for all to see during games shown on iFollow.
Working together with stadium advertising specialists Fans at the Game, a dedicated smartphone App has been developed and this enables supporters to take their own image and pay for the Valiant Cutout through an integrated secure payment system. The App also allows supporters to take images of photographs of distant friends, relatives or those no longer with us and request that groups of Cutouts are positioned together in the stadium.
SVA has also arranged for an initial number of the Valiant Cutouts to comprise legendary Vale Players and these will be located in the allocated seating area. Requests to add additional legends will be considered and there will also be the option to sponsor a Valiant Cutout of your favourite former Vale player. This can be positioned adjacent to your own Cutout, enabling you to sit in the Company of Legends at Vale Park.
You can purchase your Fans at the Game Valiant Cutout for only £25 and the proceeds from this fundraising initiative will be used by the Port Vale Foundation to deliver a number of community projects agreed with SVA. This will include Kit out a Kid which will provide a Vale shirt and Junior Valiant membership to specially selected kids in the local area. SVA have also committed to make a donation towards the Supporters’ Club Lorne St Concourse Fund.
In very simple terms, all you need to do is:
- Visit our Fans at the Game website using your smartphone.
- Use the mobile device native browser (Apple/IOS Safari or Android Chrome).
- Agree to the Terms and Conditions.
- Allow your device camera to take a picture that fits into the silhouette shown.
- You can re-take your picture until you are happy with the resulting image.
- Approve your picture.
- Make your secure online payment of £25.
The Fans at the Game App will be launched on Friday 23rd October at 13:00 and details of how to access the App will be provided here and through the Club’s social media channels at that time.
Valiant Cutouts will be produced in batches and SVA anticipates that arrangements will be made for supporters to come to Vale Park to position their Cutout in the designated area. This process will be subject to demand, certain restrictions concerning seating areas that can be used and being able to satisfy all relevant safety guidelines.
