Official supporters' association and sponsors of Mansfield Town, the Stags Supporters' Association have been fundraising on a voluntary basis for over 10 years, raising over £200,000 during this time.
Hundreds of Mansfield Town fans are members of the SSA, which is made up of Amber Members who contribute a minimum of £4 a month, as well as Blue and Junior Members.
SSA’s Junior Membership works closely and proudly with Mansfield Town’s Football in the Community Scheme. SSA are hugely proud of their loyal members going the 'extra mile' financially to help the Stags. SSA’s most recent large donations include £10,000 to Mansfield Town to assist with the rebuild of the Sandy Pate Sports Bar and £8,000 to Mansfield Town for the purchase of a new tractor.
As well as contributing approximately £15,000 per season via various methods of donations/sponsorship SSA also historically invested around £15,000 into the club via the Stags' Fans United Supporters Trust. This enabled the SFU to invest in shares in the Stags and helped to install a Supporters' Director at One Call Stadium.
As well as producing highly collectable metal pin badges, the SSA organise family friendly away travel to EVERY competitive Mansfield Town Away match, with travel prices ANYWHERE in the country currently set at just £10* per match for Amber members!
*£15 for longer trips such as Yeovil and Exeter.

The current SSA Committee (listed below as democratically elected annually by the SSA membership at SSA’s AGM as per their constitution) generally meet fortnightly on a Tuesday evening from 7.15pm onwards at the One Call Stadium, home of Mansfield Town FC.
The SSA is run completely by unpaid volunteers purely as a labour of love in their spare time and SSA are always looking for enthusiastic, passionate, forward thinking people who are willing to help contribute positively to the SSA and help drive the organisation forward. SSA are always open to new ideas and would be delighted to talk to anyone who can offer value to the organisation. SSA members are always welcome at Committee Meetings but we would advise any member wanting to attend to firstly ring the SSA on 07967 689597 to check the date of the next SSA Committee Meeting as these do change from time to time.
