Wrexham FC fans have been offered the chance to star in a commemorative anniversary mosaic.
As part of Wrexham Football Club’s 150th Anniversary celebrations, and with the co-operation of Glyndwr University, fans of the Club will be part of a lasting tribute of this special year. A commemorative mosaic made up of 2,000 fans photos will be installed in the concourse of the Mold Road Stand to mark the Anniversary season.
Wrexham FC are looking for 2,000 fans to have their photos and photos of loved ones incorporated within the mosaic as a lasting tribute for all supporters of Wrexham Football Club. The photos will be reduced to around an inch square, and together they will form a distinctive montage of ten iconic legends who have all played a significant part in the Club’s history.
Glyndwr University student Ben Seas has designed the mosaic, which will be a fitting recognition of the Club’s 150 year history. It will stand proudly in the concourse, and has been designed to be movable should the stand ever be redeveloped.
The cost to have a photograph within the image will be just £10 per photo, with all the proceeds supporting the fund for the new viewing platforms for disabled fans sitting in the Mold Road stand.
Chair of the Disabled Supporters Association, Terry Stott, said “We are very proud that the legacy of the Anniversary mosaic will in turn support the lasting legacy of improved facilities for our fans with disabilities. This is a great community initiative and it really is fantastic that the generosity of Wrexham fans is helping the Club to become even more inclusive”.
Fans can have their photo or that of a loved one included in the mosaic by either calling in at the club shop, visiting wfcshop.wst.org.uk or by sending a photo and payment to Mosaic Offer, c/o Wrexham FC, The Racecourse Ground, Wrexham, LL11 2AH. Digital photos can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
