Who Are We?

FC United of Manchester is a community football club owned and democratically run by its members. Its corporate structure is a Community Benefit Society and membership is open to all, with everyone an equal co-owner, holding one voting share in the club.

The club was founded in 2005 by Manchester United fans following Malcolm Glazer's takeover of the Old Trafford club. This was seen as a catalyst and final straw by some, but it was not the sole reason for the formation of FC United. The club is semi-professional and currently plays in the Northern Premier League. The club regularly attracts crowds of more than 2,000 - several times the league average - and boasts many on and off the field achievements including three consecutive promotions and a number of trophies.

It is unique at its level of English football in having its obligations to its fan communities and local communities written into its Constitution. The club was awarded Cooperative UK's Cooperative Excellence Award in 2009 for its cutting edge work with local communities.

FC United seeks to change the way that football is owned and run, putting supporters at the heart of everything. It aims to show, by example, how this can work in practice by creating a sustainable, successful, fan-owned, democratic football club that creates real and lasting benefits to its members and local communities.

The development of a new community football and sports ground, which we are now asking you to support, is a vital element in that journey.

Many football club developments place their clubs in debt or place the club in the hands of major investors. With your support we can show a better way.

The Board believe that your investment will be for long term benefit and will help FC United succeed in its mission, creating social, environmental and financial returns.
