Crowdfunder launched to save Fort William's ground

Crowdfunder launched to save Fort William's ground

Sunday 1st August 2021

One of the UK's most picturesque football grounds is under threat of permanent closure.

Fort William have been forced to play all of this season's games away from home due to the state of the pitch at Claggan Park. The ground has one of the most famous backdrops in Britain with the Nevis Range clearly visible behind the goal.

The Highland League side have turned to crowdfunding in an attempt to raise £5,000, although the amount required to get the pitch back up to league standard is expected to cost closer to £50,000.

Vandal attacks in 2019 and 2021 have hampered the club's efforts to make the pitch playable, with vital equipment being damaged.

The club's Go Fund Me currently sits at just over £1,000 of their £5,000 target. Please donate here:
