This Club Lied To Fans About A Raffle And Then Tried To Cover It Up

Chesterfield FC created a fan raffle competition to accompany the team on their pre-season tour. Problem: only four tickets were sold.

We here at The18 love a good conspiracy theory. We especially love it when conspiracy theories turn out to be grounded in truth, as is apparently the case with a Chesterfield FC fan promotion that went awry.

Note: please read the below thread while listening to this song. It will set the mood.

"The Chesterfield Conspiracy" would be an excellent title for a Robert Ludlum-type spy novel. We expect to read it on a plane one of these days.
