Supporters' Trust For Cardiff City

Supporters' Trust For Cardiff City


CARDIFF CITY SUPPORTERS` TRUST SET FOR LIFT-OFF


More than one hundred Cardiff City supporters gave their unanimous backing to plans to establish Cardiff City Supporters` Trust at an open meeting held at the Welsh Institute of Sport on the 29th March 2008.


The result of the vote was greeted by applause and came after supporters had heard from Paul Corkrey, acting chair of the Trust Steering Committee, Nick Illingsworth, chair of the Saints Trust and Kevin Rye of Supporters Direct. Supporters Direct is the Government backed body who have been providing practical help and advice to Cardiff City fans working to establish a supporters` trust.


The steering committee will now press ahead with plans to formally launch the trust as a democratic, independent, not for profit supporters` organisation.


Paul Corkrey said "Cardiff City supporters have clearly demonstrated their support for a trust and with over four hundred pledges of support, we are in a position to move forward. A guiding principle of the trust will be openness and inclusivity and we would urge all supporters to get involved".


The trusts` long term aim will be to raise enough money to buy a significant shareholding in the club and get a fans` representative on the board of directors. Short term aims include strengthening the voice of supporters in the decision making process at the club and reinforcing the links between the club and the community.


Supporters can register their interest and learn more at the trust`s website - www.ccfctrust.org
