The club has already done extensive tours with the trophy around pubs, work places and schools in the Stockport area.
Plenty of people have already had photos taken, so this is far from the only opportunity people have had.
There has to be benefits to being a Coop member otherwise why would people join? Relying on altruism has only taken the Coop so far.
We could have charged £1 for kids / £3 for young adults / £12 adults for the photo alone, but we havenít. We are saying join for that price and the photo is free + you get other benefits like priority on away tickets, discounts off corporate and access to many other Coop events (meet ex players), etc...
