The money raised will be used to purchase shares in the football club and a seat on the board of directors.
#Project250 was launched in October 2019 with a view to buying shares in Crewe Alexandra Football Club.
In a statement released tonight the group said:
The Railwaymen Supporters Society stood in front of the gathered fans and explained how a new future could be achieved through something we affectionally came to know as #Project250.
Now, just 3 and a half months later, it gives us immense pleasure to let all fans of Crewe Alexandra know that #Project250 has been successful in reaching it’s target amount! Through the hard work of the Railwaymen Supporters Society and the passion of the fans from the club, we have successfully reached the £250,000 target that we need to purchase shares in the club.
Fans took to social media when the announcement was made.
The guys behind the scenes who made this a real opportunity for the supporters, tirelessly putting in the hours behind the scenes really deserve a pat on the back ❤????⚪— James Shaw (@triggersfingers) February 3, 2020
Most #CreweAlex fans have been dreaming of this day for many years, but probably deep down thought it would never happen.— David (@65Dangermouse) February 3, 2020
A huge thank you to the #Project250 Board who saw the opportunity and massive respect to all the supporters in turning it in to a reality.
The new structure will see an end of the controlling interest in the football club of controversial owner Norman Hassall.
