Basford United FC is a football team based in the Basford suburb of Nottingham. Founded in 1900 at the Old Pear Tree Inn, they initially played in the Notts Combination, but are now members of the Northern Premier League Premier Division, playing at Greenwich Avenue.
Groubook has been very clear about being a proud, Nottingham-founded company, wanting to not only boost and assist the local hospitality industry, but also get involved in and be a part of the history of the city. We love spotting and supporting local talent, and so it gives us the greatest pleasure to announce our partnership with this amazing team! Alongside the support we are offering them, Groubook is also selling tickets to Basford United FC’s games and events on our free app, which can be downloaded on both the App Store and on Google Play. Upcoming, is their 20th November 2021 game against Whitby Town FC. Adult tickets are £9, and child tickets are £3. It’s set to be a fantastic match, and one that anyone who enjoys football (particularly between local teams) should make sure they attend. It is an at home game, taking place at Basford United Sports Ground on the aforementioned Greenwich Avenue (NG6 0LD). Groubook is also offering something special for any students who wish to watch: for the price of a child’s ticket (£3), you gain entry into the stadium, as well as a free pint in the pitch side bar. Valid ID and student ID must be shown. All tickets purchased through the Groubook app should be shown at the gate for entry. When you attend, make sure you keep an eye out for our Groubook logo displayed on the side of the pitch – we think the green of the astroturf really brings out our unique orange brand colour.
