Beyond the Debt ??? A Supporters' Rally (updated)


On Saturday 27th February, before our home game against North Ferriby United, FC United will host a supporters’ rally aimed at putting supporter ownership at the very centre of the debate on the future of the game.

Alongside our own speakers, guests will include Guardian journalist David Conn, representatives from Schalke FC, Supporters Direct and IMUSA. Two other high profile European sides have also been invited and we await their confirmation. It is also hoped that groups from English clubs affected by the escalating debt in the game, will be in attendance.

Football is at a critical juncture, with the need for clear leadership and regulation never more evident. An alternative model of how the game is structured has never been more needed with supporter ownership absolutely fundamental to that model.

FC United is part of that debate, an example of that alternative and with our guests and friends that will join us on the day we aim to make the point that supporter ownership is the only way forward.

Join us on the 27th.

12 noon, Gigg Lane Social Club - Free Entry

Please note that we expect that the rally will be finished for 1.30 and that CYCM will be open as usual straight after it does.

There is also no reason at this stage to expect the match will be postponed, but it should be noted that the rally will go ahead regardless.
