Kickrs.Net is bringing crowdfunding into football, allowing fans to 'invest' in players and hopefully get a return. This season's campaign is launching with network club Sint-Truiden. The club will use the platform to fund the acquisition of 18-year old Panagiotis Kynigopoulos, described 'as one of the hottest prospects in Grecian football.' Read more here: Hot prospect
Kickrs.Net states, 'Selling players for profit is one of the processes that allow clubs such as Sint-Truiden to remain sustainable.'
€103,175 has been raised so far from 289 investors. That's an average of €357 per investor or approximately £260.
Whether crowdfunding would be tried at The Valley, and what response it would receive, remains to be seen.
