European supporter-owned clubs and groups say "Happy Birthday FC United"

FC United has received a 10th birthday message from the network of supporter owned clubs and national supporter associations across Europe that are coordinated by Supporters Direct Europe.

It highlights the importance of what FC United is doing and shows that it has influence well beyond these shores.

A statement on the Supporters Direct website reads "On the day that FC United of Manchester begin life at their new home with a friendly match against Portuguese champions Benfica, Supporters Direct (SD) Europe have, along with member-run clubs and supporters’ groups from across the continent, joined forces to wish the club every success at Broadhurst Park.

"Messages from Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain and Sweden show not only how far and wide the FC United story has spread, but what an inspiration it has been to supporters aiming to show that there is a better way for football."
