FC UNITED's season ticket sales have risen by a third as the club prepares for life in the UniBond League first division next month.
The Rebels have frozen the price of season tickets at the equivalent of £6 per match and £1 per match for under-18s after challenging supporters to break the 1,000 barrier by July 16.
That target was reached as sales of season tickets rose by 33 per cent, and a club spokesman said: "This is a phenomenal achievement and we'd like to thank all our supporters for showing their commitment to the club.
"It was a magnificent response to what was an ambitious challenge, but as usual supporters have come through for their club.
"Season ticket sales are up 33 per cent on this time last year and with a month still to go before the start of the season we hope that the figure rises even higher, which will help us to stick to our philosophy of providing affordable football."
FC's proposed friendly at Kidderminster on Saturday was a victim of the wet weather and is now scheduled for Sunday at 3pm, 24 hours after they send a team to Nantwich for a friendly.
Postponement of the Kidderminster match meant a stronger team than planned took to the field at Blackpool Mechanics last Sunday and goals from Jerome Wright and Rory Patterson gave the Rebels a solid 2-1 win
