We are pleased to today announce Ron Leach as the first 12th Fan of the 2018/19 season, with the 68-year old United fan set to lead the U’s out of the tunnel on the opening day of next season!
After renewing his place at the Abbey Stadium after the launch of the #unitedSince1912 campaign, Ron automatically entered his name into the draw for the amazing opportunity to become United’s official number 12 on day one of 2018/19!
The 12th Fan initiative, revealed on Friday and supported by Mick George, is part of the reward aspect of the #UnitedSince1912 season ticket campaign, which celebrates the backing of the U's faithful since Cambridge United's formation.
The initiative will see 23 United supporters who are signed up for 2018/19 ahead of the Early Bird deadline on Tuesday 8th May, selected to become our official '12th Fan' for each of the 23 League home games at the Abbey Stadium next season.
As the '12th Fan' on a match day, winners such as Ron will receive a truly unbeatable experience which will include the opportunity to lead the U's out at the Abbey Stadium, a full profile on why you support the U's via the Club's online channels and match day programme, plus your name blasted out across the tannoy.
However the most special benefit is the chance to be listed as an official member of the U's match day squad, with Cambridge United have officially reserved the number 12 shirt next season for the '12th Fan'! Yes that's right, you can become an official U!
22 more places are up for grabs, with a at least one '12th Fan' announced each day between now and the early bird deadline. The sooner you sign up, the greater your chance of winning this exceptional once in a lifetime experience.
Of course by signing up early, fans will also be purchasing their season ticket at the decreased early bird rate, as well as entering their name for further prizes in the #UnitedSince1912 28 Day Giveaway.
