12th Man Mug - Now Available!

OxVox is pleased to unveil its latest 12th Man fundraising initiative, a commemorative Wembley promotion mug.

The bone china mug shows a cartoon of the three goalscorers and the score from United’s memorable win at Wembley, which secured promotion back the Football League. James Constable, Matt Green, and Alfie Potter are all depicted celebrating on one of the finest moments in United’s history.

The item is already on sale on eBay and will also be on sale in the Exhibition Bar before and after Tuesday night’s home match against Torquay United. Each mug costs £5 and all the profits will be donated to the 12th Man Fund. The mugs will then be on sale at all the home games in the lead up to Christmas or whilst stocks last.

OxVox committee member Simon Bradbury said:

“We are always looking at exciting ideas to expand and develop the 12th Man brand and a number of supporters approached the fund and suggested a commermorative mug be produced. OxVox took up the task and with the help of supporter Paul Wakeford, who created the cartoon design based around that eventful day on May 16th, the mugs went into production.

"The initial batch of 500 limited edition mugs represent great value for money and are a perfect stocking filler for any Oxford United supporter this Christmas.”

Note: The figure as at 26th August 2010 for the total raised by 12th Man since it began is £33,809. Of this, a total of £31,170 has now been spent, and £2,639 remained in the fund at that date.

12th Man Mugs - COMING SOON!

12th Man have spent the last few weeks investigating a suitable and attractive design for a potential Christmas 12th Man Mug.

We have decided upon a design which captures the magic of our Play-Off Final win in May, depicting Alfie Potter, James Constable and Matt Green celebrating our return to the Football League.

An order has been placed, with the mugs available for sale in the very near future. We anticipate the 12th Man Mug will be available for a minimum donation of £5.00.

Ultimate Support Saturday - Aldershot Town 09.10.10

This Saturday is the first Ultimate Support Saturday. 12th Man is about our supporters and football club coming together for the common cause, this weekend supporters will demonstrate once again how much we love our club.

In the age of all seater stadiums, atmospheres at home games for many teams suffering, Oxford supporters want to buck the trend and show the nation we create brilliant atmospheres.

Ultimate Support Saturday is about everyone getting behind Oxford United and creating an electric atmosphere. After all the talk of improving the atmosphere at home games recently we demonstrated what we can achieve last weekend against Port Vale.

The Oxford Ultras are working hard at improving the atmosphere week in, week out. They have got behind Ultimate Support Saturday and they have a big display planned for the Aldershot game. All will be revealved Saturday. This group deserves a lot of credit and we as fans, appreciate that

The local media are in support of this initiative and the club are also right behind ideas which will improve the matchday experience.

Joe Nicholls who has organised Ultimate Support Saturday explains what the day is about.

Friends and family day - Every Oxford fan is encouraged to bring friends and family, to show them that Oxford United are back, and what a great football club and supporter base we have.

Wear your colours and make the stadium a sea of yellow and blue. Most importantly, to attempt to create one of the best atmospheres ever at the stadium. The middle 2 blocks of the Oxford Mail stand will be designated singing sections for Ultimate Support Saturday, so get online and book your tickets!

Joe has created a facebook group for Ultimate Support Saturday.

Everyone can play their part, by spreading the word and bringing friends, family and singing your hearts this forthcoming weekend.
