Club sponsor Eurostar have come up with a unique way to celebrate the football club’s achievement of reaching the Wembley, and the support given to the players by the club’s new owners.

They have offered to share the front of the Ebbsfleet United shirts worn by the players on the day with 11 MyFootballClub usernames. So, as well as the Eurostar logo, 11 usernames will also get to grace the Wembley turf and be seen by hundreds of thousands in the stadium and on Sky TV.

We believe it’s the first time a football club sponsor has ever shared the shirt with the supporters.

If members choose to accept this offer from Eurostar, the 11 spaces will be auctioned off, with the money raised going to the football club. Eurostar provided us with the following proposal:

We plan to auction the space beneath the Eurostar logo on the front of the final shirt to the 11 highest bidders. Each winning bidder, decided by the highest bid on eBay, will be entitled to the following:

Normally the logo on the shirts would have been ABN AMRO's, but to celebrate the end of their 18 years as sponsors and to support Dance4Life, they've included Dance4Life instead.
