Fans | Why Newport County Supports Directors’ Box

21 February 2024

At Newport County, we are a club that knows a thing or two about the power of supporters. That’s why we are proud to team up with the recently launched Directors’ Box app.

This newly launched app is free to download on Android and iOS, and it puts fans at the heart of the action. The app runs regular polls, encouraging fans to share their thoughts on the latest goings-on at their club and across the leagues. It also allows fans to sign petitions and make real changes in the game.

Fans can jump on the app when the full-time whistle blows and share their thoughts about the game. Directors’ Box doesn’t just allow fans to vote in polls and sign petitions, however, it also allows them to create them, encouraging them to raise important issues and gather support among one another. This accumulative support can quickly spread, giving fans a voice and hopefully directly impacting their respective club's decision-making processes.

However, Directors’ Box also understands that the game is about much more than just one club. It allows fans to share their wider issues on the game, with weekly polls highlighting all of football’s major talking points. Of course, you can also peek at your rivals and see how their fans feel about their club and the wider league.

Like Newport County, Directors’ Boxes believes actions speak louder than words. The app has teamed up with grassroots teams and football-related charities across the country with the aim of raising funds and supporting the game at a local level. One way it does this is through supplying teams with financial rewards, match day footballs, and kits.

Fans are also rewarded for their contributions to the app. A monthly leaderboard rewards the winner with excellent prizes, with fans gaining points for taking part in polls, predictions, creating petitions, and entering quizzes.

Speaking of quizzes, a weekly real-time quiz is held with prizes for the winners and the highest-placed grassroots team. This is an excellent opportunity to impress everyone with your football knowledge and show off why Newport has the best fans in the land. There is also a weekly prize draw for all users registered on Directors’ Box.

Moreover, fans can turn to the app’s weekly podcast, hosted by former Newport County coach Craig Gill and experienced football podcaster Kevin Harper, with regular special guest appearances. The two will share their thoughts on all the game’s biggest issues, while also inviting further engagement with the app and other fans.

You can also check in with Directors’ Box to read insights from their experienced team of football journalists with an emphasis on the EFL and grassroots football.

As a club, Newport County is proud to be working alongside an app like Directors’ Box that shares our core principles and is trying to make an active difference in the game.
