The Community Stand will have a capacity of two-hundred and fifty and is for the exclusive use of invited guests from the local community to encourage future supporters. It is a unique concept in the Football League and funded through a grant from the Football foundation and the support of Community Stakeholders.Confirmed stakeholders include Aldershot Town Football in the Community; The Aldershot Town FC Supporters Trust; The Children with Special Needs Foundation; Gold-station Jewellers & Parkside (Aldershot & District Mencap).

There is still an opportunity for Companies, Charities ,community Groups & Individuals to become a Stakeholder of the Community Stand with each donation of £1000 facilitating access to five new supporters for every home league fixture for the next two full league seasons ie 2013-14 and 2014-15.

There will be further information about the stand released over the coming weeks via the official website, news releases and exclusive articles within the match programme.
