Background of the SA
Prior to becoming a Limited Company in 1994, Stevenage Boro FC was run by a Management Committee of volunteers under the Chairmanship of Ken Vale, a Stevenage Borough Councillor. In June 1994, two of the original Management Committee, Keith Berners, and Mervyn Stokes-Geddes (SA Secretary) became the founder members of the SBFC Supporters Association.
The purpose of the Supporters Association is to provide resources and funds to Stevenage Football Club, give benefits to the members and to enhance communication between the Club and its supporters. The SA is not conducted for profit and each season surplus funds are passed to the Club in exchange for shares in SBFC. To date the SA have transferred over £300k to the Club.
Membership of the Supporters Association in 2011/12 was 998, although in our championship winning season, and the year of our Newcastle cup exploits, membership was as high as 2,500. Membership has averaged circa 500 for the past couple of season. There are various membership categories, and subscriptions range from £6 for Juniors up to £26 for families.
