Gate Money is the story of the £10 million National Lottery grant that was supposed to keep 66 National League football clubs alive during the pandemic. How did what should have a feelgood story turn so toxic, so quickly, that some cashed starved clubs were pushed to the brink? Why did the league end up burying the report into its own conduct? And why does football still not have an independent regulator?  

The screening will be raising funds for City Fans United, the supporters’ group which owns Chester FC. 

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with presenter Fred Atkins, director Jasper Spanjaart, Chester FC manager Calum McIntyre and Dave Powell, Business of Football writer at the Liverpool Echo.
