Launching Our New Retail Space for Football Match Tickets

by | Apr 27, 2024 | Blog, Match Tickets

After five years of dreaming and dedication, the vision of having my own office or retail shop has finally come to life. Back in 2019, when I first launched Matchday Affairs, I set up in an office space provided by my in-laws, who kindly let me rent their second unit. The setup was simple—a few personal touches, some foldable tables and chairs, and just enough renovations to make it feel like ours.

Navigating Challenges: The COVID Impact

Then, COVID-19 struck, halting global travel and, consequently, our business. With a heavy heart, we had to give up our space to keep the company afloat. It was a tough call, but necessary for our survival.

A New Beginning: Securing Our Own Space

As the world slowly opened up again, I found myself operating out of my in-laws’ office to cut costs, a solution I am incredibly thankful for. However, a couple of months ago, I finally felt ready to venture out and find a space solely for Matchday Affairs—a place where we could sell football match tickets and turn our dreams into reality.

Realising a Dream: Our New Retail Space

Last month, I took a significant step forward and signed my first tenancy lease. Just last week, I received the keys to our new space, and today, I’m thrilled to announce that after some minor renovations, our new retail space is ready. This isn’t just any space; it’s an experiential concept store dedicated to bringing the excitement of live football matches directly to our customers through unique football match ticket offerings.

Lessons Learned: The Power of Perseverance

I am incredibly grateful for the unwavering support of my wife, parents, in-laws, friends, and the entire Matchday Affairs family. Their encouragement has been instrumental in achieving this milestone. Alhamdulillah, a dream that once lived on my vision board is now a reality.

This journey teaches me never to give up, no matter how long it takes. Patience, trust, and gratitude, even for the small victories, are crucial. And as always, “Verily with every hardship comes ease” (Quran 94:5-6) serves as a powerful reminder of the resilience needed to overcome challenges.
