    Guys.... we're a British soccer club who's decided we want to be community owned. We were inspired by the Packers story and have set out to 'buy ourselves'!

    The club is Darlington FC, founded in 1883... yep we have history including the world's first professional black footballer, who also held the world 100 yards record!

    We've raised £250,000 in a week but still need to get to £750,000 and we only have a population of 100,000.

    So Packer fans (and especially any Brits over there) any ideas how to help us?! Maybe the Packers need a partner community owned club in the UK?! Google us 'Darlington Football Club' or find us at BuyDarlo.org

    Any ideas just let us know!

    75 quid each. Should be manageable enough. Im a Brit who was been living in America for 8 years but on the other side of the country to Wisconsin.

    Good luck,

    I hope you make it!

    Thanks Jamie, passed through Oregon on a road trip a few years ago... great memories of being drunk under the table by tuna fishermen!
