Committee Statement: No SFD in 2018

It is with regret that we can confirm there will be no Sheffield Fans Derby event staged in 2018.

Talks have been held with a major venue to host the 15th event in June 2018, unfortunately those discussions have come to a close without agreement on costs or date.

The Sheffield Fans Derby is an event that first and foremost is staged to raise vital funds for the charity appeal that is supports. The event is run solely by volunteers and has to generate all of its income to run these events from registration fees, donations, sponsors and spectators.

The costs of putting on these events have always been covered and then we have gone on to raise a considerable amount of money for the charity. The committee felt that this would have not have been the case based on the quoted price and the date offered. It is because of this that the committee have had to make this heartbreaking decision to postpone the event.

The SFD has raised £43,043 in ten years between fourteen different appeals, being hosted at Bramall Lane twice, Don Valley Stadium, Hallam FC & Sheffield FC to name a few of the venues. We would like to thank all the venues for the support they have given us. The event will return in 2019 bigger and better than before.
