Trust Update: Survey deadline extended, new handbook and Leeds United event.

Survey deadline: Shelbourne FC and The 1895 Trust are delighted to announce that due to the incredible success of the 1st Shelbourne FC Fans’ Survey (500 surveys have been completed to date), the deadline for completing the survey has been extended until the end of July.

The aim of this survey is to collect information on the Shelbourne FC Community and to query fans on the match day experience at Tolka Park. The results of this survey will be used by the club to improve our advertising and marketing strategy and to improve the match day experience of Shelbourne FC fans.

The survey is for anyone who has come to a game at Tolka Park, including lapsed fans and casual attendees. Shelbourne FC encourage fans to pass the survey on to those who are no longer regular attendees, so their views can be represented.

This survey is being produced with the help of The1895 Trust. Survey design and data analysis is being performed on a voluntary basis by members of the Trust.

Paper copies of the survey can be obtained from the 1895 Trust stall in Tolka Park.

Thank you for taking time to complete this survey, final results will be made available to the public.
