As you may have seen on our home page or via twitter over the past few days, we are going to be hosting a quiz in order to raise funds ahead of the forthcoming season.
The reason behind staging the quiz is in order to raise much needed funds which hopefully will go a long way to covering the cost of coverage for the highly anticipated 2013-14 season, the Stags first back in the football league after winning the conference last term.
Coverage has cost nothing bar expenses for travel and kit maintenance over the past two and a half seasons since Mansfield Matters began due to the clubs standing in the conference, however now the club are back in the league, should we wish to continue broadcasting coverage we will be required to pay a fee, as would other broadcasters which has been documented on other websites.
The quiz is something we’ve done for fun before on twitter and something which has been enjoyed, with this in mind we felt it the best way to raise additional funds.
The fundraiser quiz is open to everyone and costs a minimum of £10 by way of donation (you will be sent the link once you have submitted your details using the form below). There is NO CLOSING DATE FOR ENTRANTS, however those who wish to take part MUST submit their answers either by email or post (again full details will be sent upon receiving your details via the below form) by 7pm on Friday 5th July 2013.
Once you have submitted your details and we have received confirmation of your donation you will be sent your quiz sheet via email, the quiz comprises of 50 questions which are about the five years Mansfield have spent in the conference. We kindly ask entrants NOT to cheat using aids such as Google or related research websites, please be honest with your answers.
There are currently two prizes for the quiz, the overall winner will receive a bottle of expensive champagne, along with a signed copy of Stephen Thrikill’s ‘Mansfield Town’s 25 most memorable matches’ which will include a special hidden extra. Providing that a certain number of people enter, there will also be a cash prize in addition – Please note the cash prize is not guaranteed and depends on the number of overall entrants.
The runners up will also receive a signed copy of the popular book which is included in a surprise ‘champions’ themed goodie-bag.
