First Time Fans Guide

Formed in 1877, Crewe Alexandra is one of the oldest Football League clubs in Britain and has experienced many highs and lows during its history.

From the trauma of re-election to the high of promotion to the EFL Championship in 1997, Crewe Alexandra has an established and proud history as a club that often ‘punches above its weight’.

The Football Club has developed a well renowned youth Academy that has produced a number of full international players such as former England captain David Platt, Dean Ashton, Danny Murphy and Seth Johnson and generated over £25 million in transfer revenue.

Crewe Alexandra continues to nurture young talent and provide them with an opportunity to play first-team football. Our objective is to produce talented, skilful footballers, as well as disciplined and respectful men both on-and-off the pitch. The club is often awarded the PFA and FA Fair Play Awards for our excellent discipline.

Despite having to sell playing assets to survive, Crewe Alexandra reached the Championship for a period of eight seasons and always strives to play at the highest level possible.

Following the conclusion of the 2019/20 season, Crewe Alexandra were promoted back into League One after a four year wait, receiving their first piece of silverware since winning the Football League Trophy (Johnstone’s Paint Trophy) at Wembley Stadium.

In addition to being promoted as League Two Runners-up, in March 2020, the Football Club welcomed five new directors on to the board, forming Crewe Alexandra Group Limited with one of them being the Chairman from ‘The Railwaymen Supporters Society’.

The Football Club was the first to win the EFL’s accolade of the best away fan experience and has proudly won the Family Excellence Award over the past six seasons.

Crewe Alexandra was honoured with the Football League’s Most Respected Club Award in 2005 – an accolade that takes pride of place at the Alexandra Stadium. 

The club’s Soccer in the Community scheme is also award winning and holds sessions for children of all ages, as well for those with disabilities and learning difficulties.

In the forthcoming season, everyone at the Club is aiming to build on our relationships with the local community and enticing supporters of the future to local football.

We have increased our links with local charities and have chosen Mid Cheshire Hospitals and their tremendous work with dementia as one of our new charity partners for the coming season. 

During these tough economic times, The Football Club is also keen to assist our supporters by offering real value for money in relation to ticketing and season tickets. We continue to offer some of the cheapest seats in the entire EFL, especially for our younger supporters. Our free season ticket offer for our Under-11s has once again proved very popular with families.

In October 2015 Crewe Alexandra was one of nine clubs successful in completing a ground-breaking pilot that sets standards for equality in professional football, meeting the Code of Practice foundation level, and setting the benchmark for others to follow.

The Football League’s Code of Practice was introduced as part of a commitment to English football’s Inclusion & Anti-Discrimination Action Plan which ensures clubs are inclusive across all sections of their business. This incorporates match day operations, general operations, community trust, youth development, fans and the first team.

The club successfully passed an independent assessment across 12 areas of operation ensuring good practice extends to all employees, spectators and other people engaged with the club.

The Code of Practice embeds inclusion and equality throughout the whole club, setting accountability at the highest level.

Pyrotechnics

All 72 EFL clubs have signed up to a new Chairman’s Charter to help put an end to the dangerous use of pyrotechnics, which include smoke bombs, flares, and fireworks within EFL football grounds.

In conjunction with police forces around the country, EFL clubs will take strong and decisive action against any fan found attempting to bring a banned item into a ground.

The same will apply to supporters who choose to discharge pyrotechnics within a stadium environment. Police should be informed of such incidents and consideration given to a prosecution and subsequent banning order, where sufficient evidence is forthcoming of a criminal offence.

Any supporter found to be in breach of the terms of the charter will face a minimum three-season club ban. Clubs will be permitted the flexibility to reduce the length of the Club ban should an offender recognise the danger of their actions.

- In the event of an emergency we must have all access and exit points clear.

 

- Mornflake Stadium reserves the right to confiscate flags if they are very large or may compromise public safety, obscure someone’s view, a camera position or if a flag carries offensive, discriminatory, or inflammatory messaging.

 

- Flags more than 250cm in size at their widest or longest section will not be allowed and flagpoles greater than 1m in length will not allowed.

 

- Any articles that could potentially be used as a weapon and/or compromise public safety are strictly prohibited.

 

- Permission must be sought in advance from the stadium to arrange use of the very large supporter flags that are designed to be passed over people's heads.
