This Saturday will see the club launch the Raise The Roof for Section 94 campaign with the support of the ICT Supporters Trust, Section 94, The Wyness Shuffle Podcast, ICT Community Development Trust and the ICT Supporters Travel Club.
Fans will have the chance to make the first contributions to the campaign which is entirely fan driven as we look to make ground improvements to the West Stand with a new roof over Section 94 targeted in Phase 1 and the club will be announcing some exciting experiential opportunities to support the Caley Jags fans efforts to help us to improve the Stadium.

Speaking to the club media today Daniel Smith of Section 94 said “Everyone in Section 94 is delighted to help launch the ‘Raise The Roof’ campaign. Ever since discussions over a dedicated section for vocal supporters in the West Stand began last year, putting a roof over the stand has been one of our main aims. We’d like to put on record our thanks to the club for their tireless work to help make this a reality.
We’re pleased to launch the fundraising campaign this week and we’re confident that the fans will get behind the project. We’ve already seen an unprecedented level of fan cooperation and collaboration thus far and we’re excited to see what the future brings.”
Speaking on behalf of the ICTST Jen Aitchison said “The ICT Supporters Trust are delighted to be involved in this Project and we are looking forward to the future developments of the West Stand.”
Rosemary Webb of the ICT Supporters Travel Club said “We welcome all ground improvement projects at Caledonian Stadium and this will hopefully be another good step forward for our supporters.”
Club CEO Scot Gardiner said “We have been speaking with the guys in Section 94 since their inception and it was clear to us that we had to try and address the section in the West Stand where our “ultra” fans are situated. They are there through rain and shine and literally are rained on whenever the weather is inclement.
“We have seen the impact they can have on the team, the play-off matches last season were fantastic and to be able to work with all of our fans groups to deliver a solution which would be out of our current financial reach, is the ideal scenario. The working group we established to drive the campaign forward has already come up with some great fundraising ideas and we look forward to being able to facilitate many more to reach our target. I hope Caley Jags from far and near will get behind this campaign.”
