Wall of Colour

24 July 2014

Wall of Colour

We're calling on Newport County AFCĀ supporters to show their true colours for theĀ opening home match of the new season against Wycombe WanderersĀ on Saturday 9th August.

Ā 

As the new Sky Bet Football League season kicks-off, fans across the country are being set the challenge of creating a ā€˜Wall of Colourā€™ at their sideā€™s opening home league match. Ā Fans can get involved by donning their clubā€™s famous colours, as well as finding the most innovative ways to show off their love for their team through social media using #WallofColour.Ā 


We will be looking to kick off the new season in style, with the first home result often proving a useful pointer to a teamā€™s prospects for the season ahead.Ā  Last season, none of the 10 clubs that won promotion from the Sky Bet Championship, League 1 or League 2 lost their first home league match. Additionally, none of the 9 clubs that were ultimately relegated won their opening home game.


We're looking for Newport County AFC fans to play their part in getting by making Rodney ParadeĀ a sea ofĀ Ā Amberand creating a memorable atmosphere to inspire the team.

Ā 

Shaun Harvey, the Chief Executive of The Football League, said: ā€œThe beginning of the new season is always a special time, with supporters full of hope and expectation that this season is going to be their year.Ā 

Ā 

ā€œItā€™s great to see Newport County AFCĀ calling on fans to create a Wall of Colour at Rodney ParadeĀ and I hope that Newport County AFCĀ supporters rise to the challenge.Ā  Every side will want to make a strong start to the new season and the three points on offer could go on to make all the difference when the trophies are being handed out next Spring.ā€
