Members' Vote: Results.

Following conclusion of the FC United members’ vote on pay-on-the-gate ticket prices, season-ticket prices and Northern Premier League Unibond patches, the results are as follows:

On the question "It is proposed by the board of FC United of Manchester that adult pay-on-the-gate prices for home matches rise by 50 pence to £7.50. Under 18s and Over 65s pay-on-the-gate prices should stay at the current rates of £2 and £5 per match respectively":
85.88% voted to accept the resolution, 11.9% voted to reject it and 2.22% abstained.

On the question "It is proposed by the board of FC United of Manchester that home season tickets for the season 2007-08 remain priced at £126 for adults, £90 for Over 65s and £21 for Under 18s":
96.6% voted to accept the resolution, 0.78% voted to reject it and 2.61% abstained.

On the question "Rule 7.7 of the Unibond League requires that competing clubs wear a competition logo on the sleeve of their playing kit incorporating the name and logo of the league sponsor. In March 2006 at the General Meeting of FC United the membership carried resolution ’C’ which stated "that no FC United of Manchester playing strip will carry shirt sponsorship". The League Management Committee have informed FC United that sanctions, financial or other, as a result of our refusal to wear the competition logo would be severe":
86.01% voted "Yes - wear the patches for season 2007-2008 on the basis that, should our members wish, we will continue to make our position clear in future dealings with the league"
11.11% voted "No - refuse to wear the patches and accept any punishments which the league deem appropriate"
2.88% abstained
As mentioned in club correspondence, it is anticipated that this issue will be revisited at this year’s AGM for a formal resolution on the matter.

Turnout for all three votes was 58.31% of all currently eligible members.

Thank you to all members who took the time to vote.
