Started in 2010, Non-League Day began as a social media experiment after the founder, James Doe, was inspired by a pre-season visit to Tavistock while watching Queens Park Rangers. Since then, the scheme has gained the backing of not just of non-league clubs, but high-profile celebrities and Members of Parliament as well.
Non-League Day is always scheduled to take place during the international break to encourage fans of League teams to support a non-league club without missing any games. Many clubs have recorded a large increase in gate receipts during this time, bringing in valuable finance to teams that place such a large importance on the money that supporters bring in.
This year Non-League Day will return across the country for the sixth consecutive occasion on Saturday 10th October, and will be partnered with Prostate Cancer UK to raise money and awareness for the charity, as well as the values that non-league football promotes.
