CEO Jon Adams revealed that match-day revenue had doubled and average attendances and season ticket sales had risen significantly since the club’s first ever National League campaign in 2017/18.
Adams, speaking at Tuesday evenings AGM, confirmed that the club – although not operating at a profit – works within an agreed budget with the benevolence of Chairman Peter Griffin making up any shortfall. Operating costs have risen with the factors of match-day safety, travel, player budget and ground grading to contend with but income had also risen substantially.
Adams said a planning application had been accepted in order to fulfil EFL grading requirements - should the club progress to that level - adding that the club now has the relevant A grade.
Adams and Griffin took questions from the floor, confirming that there was no prospect of an access point via the Canal End of the ground in the foreseeable future.
Griffin also discussed admission prices, stating that the club are developing a growing fanbase based on a good value match-day experience and said commercial revenue was growing. He added that Maidenhead have some of the lowest admission prices in the division. Discussing the future of the York Road Griffin reassured fans the ground is owned by a board of trustees - who are all supporters and have the best interests of the club at heart.
