Macclesfield Town's tuesday's nights game against Accrington Stanley is being billed by the club as Credit Crunch Tuesday. All adult tickets are just £5.00! with under 16's completely free!

Meanwhile season ticket holders receive a free programme and the corporate hospitality is reduced to £25.

And the club is hoping the people of the town will respond in the best possible way, and make their way down to the Moss Rose to cheer on the lads.

Getting the message out there

"One of the key elements of a promotion like this is getting the message out there. Not just to existing supporters but to the wider Macclesfield public," said commercial manager Penny Baguley.

"The fans have hopefully seen the posters we have had put up in the newsagents, chip shops and taxi ranks in town and the competitions in both the Macclesfield and Wilmslow Express which mention the game. But we've used new technology to plug this match through Facebook, as well as more old fashioned routes such as leafleting door to door and in pubs and cafes. We've even had people hitting the phones to try and get the national media to ignore the Premier League for five minutes!

Fans encouraged to spread the word

"And hopefully the fans themselves have been helping us out with the best promotional tool there is - word of mouth. Plenty of people might have seen the posters and know that Macc are running a game for a fiver.

"In fact when we were putting up posters one person behind a bar knew about the game because she had seen another poster in a taxi office and it was encouraging to know that they were getting attention, but the final phase is out of our hands and the last thing we want is anyone saying 'Oh, was that last night?' and missing out on the opportunity."

"We can plaster posters all over town, but nothing is as beneficial as our fans putting the case to two or three of their friends or colleagues face to face. When else can you really help the club by simply having a chat!

"Whether it's 'inviting' all of your Facebook friends to the game, talking about it at your coffee break or even just mentioning it to a friend in the pub then anything that helps keep the message moving will help the club.

Wow - what a fantastic idea! Voted hot.
Says a lot for the club - good for Macclesfield Town !

Here's hoping they win the League and next year's FA Cup !

Would love to take my son to watch a team, but it is just too pricey nowadays; but I would support a club like this.
#2
Well done Macclesfield Town
#3
If I was closer I would go...!

HOT!
#4
Voted hot as a Macc fan :).

Its a great deal its just a shame people around macc wont take it up as they only care about man u or city.
#5
Hot from me. Shame the scousers are playing though - quite a few I know say they "would have gone but..."

As with all deals, you get what you pay for!

good to see clubs being imaginative to try and attract fans. Shame all the glory-seeking sheep in the area probably support Man U. Have they ever seen them without a pint glass in the corner of the screen?
#8
Would have gone....
But it's at the other side of town. At least 10mins drive.

Going to try and get a few mates to go, try to get the attendance up.

#11

#12
Must be a "winner" ! !
#13
Saw macclesfield in the FA Cup this year play Harlow Town in the 1st round. they won 2-0 that cost me £15 so £5 is the best bargin ever.
#14
Nice one, good luck old foes.
#15
Good spot and it's a very family friendly atmosphere at the games normally. Well done the silkmen.

Well down Macclesfield hope they get a good crowd. Was up there a few years ago when my club Southend United played up there met some great people up there.
#18
Impossible not to vote hot.
Hope it goes well, the Premiership is turning to carp tbh and the Championship down sees honest, gritty and 'real' football. Teams like Macclesfield deserve credit for this kind of initiative.
#19
Accrington got hammered 5-0 on the weekend :)

wouldnt call championship footy real football, but its a very even league as shown the top3's recent jitters...the main diff between top and bottom is the top have decent strikers, thought doncaster were a decent side but ran out of ideas in the crucial 1/3 of the pitch, but as i thought they have moved quickly out of trouble

Well done Macc, hopefully a few more clubs will follow suit.

Watching 2 teams play the ball across the back then lob it forward and watch Drogba roll into next week, watch Keane whinge about a decent challenge and then the opposition back 4 mirror it i have to wonder why the top 4 play some of the most boring football in all 4 divisions is turning me off the Premiership. The Champions league is equally bad of late.
