Trust Update: March 2024

March 2024

Welcome to this month’s update; the first of the year in what has been a mixed season so far for the team.

Fan Park 2
As many of you will be aware, work on our new Fan Park has been slower than we anticipated. For those of you that have passed the structure recently, you will notice that the main structure is built, the floor has been fitted in the front arch, the toilet block has been installed and the building is now watertight.

Since the initial fundraise and the commencement of the construction, numerous unforeseen challenges have been encountered. First and foremost, we lost our driving force behind the project and Chair, Ben Harrison; an irreplaceable figure who worked tirelessly to create a Fan Park that Tranmere fans could enjoy. 

In respect of the building itself, the need for footings to be deeper than initially specified increased costs and preparation time. We have also faced challenges with supplier deliveries including rising prices of building materials and equipment, as well as other challenges which many similar projects have faced. This has subsequently meant that we have not been able to open the Fan Park as soon as we initially hoped.

 As a result of the delays, we are in discussions with the Club and other stakeholders to continue the work, and get the facility ready to open as soon as practicable. The Trust with the support of the Club are focused on delivering the new fan park as a priority.  We would like to thank everybody for their understanding and continued patience. Of course, this project would not have been possible without the fans and we hope that everybody will soon be able to enjoy the new structure that will no doubt stand as a hub in our Tranmere community.

Current Fan Park
When we move into the new Fan Park, we will of course be leaving behind the ‘tent’ or marquee. The tent has been home to many play-off celebrations and promotion parties over recent years but will be dismantled when the new one is in operation. We will be selling the marquee and have included the details below. Please contact if you would like to enquire about the sale.

We continue to sell our Trust merchandise in the current Fan Park on a match-day. We currently have very low stock available as we look to launch a new range in the spring. We’re very open to product and design suggestions – feel free to drop us an email with any ideas that you may have.

500 Club
We would like to congratulate our most recent winner of the 500 Club: Tony Jones £1115.00

The 500 Club is open to anyone who would like the chance to win up to £1,250 each month.

Trust Board Matters
We are delighted to welcome Steve Francom as the new Treasurer for the Trust.  Steve replaces long standing Treasurer Ernie Hayes who did a fantastic job for the Trust over many, many years.  We thank Ernie for his dedication and outstanding contribution to the Trust in such an important role.

The date of the Trust AGM will be announced in the coming months. All Trust members will be welcome to attend.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for your fantastic support and patience and look forward to welcoming you to our new Fan Park as soon as we can.
