FC United – Development Fund

As most people know I am an avid Manchester City fan and have been a season ticket holder for 26 years, but I am very happy to support FC United raising vital funds.
The way FC United of Manchester is run has given all football fans food for thought. FC United were set up in the wake of Malcolm Glazer’s takeover of Manchester United by fans who had grown increasingly disillusioned with rising ticket prices, delayed kick-offs for the benefit of television and by the way that a Manchester institution had stopped being for and about the fans.

FC United’s ownership model is a demonstration of what can be achieved when clubs are run in the best interests of the fans who are after all those who care about the club the most. I applaud the community work that the club is heavily involved in, with events using football as a way of helping young people get fit and bringing different parts of the community together.
I am proud to have become a patron of the FC United Development Fund which aims to raise money for the club to enable it to further engage with disadvantaged communities across Manchester.

  1. Good to see you’re concentrating on the important issues. All this, what do you call it, ‘Foot Ball’… keeps the plebs happy, keeps their minds occupied so they don’t notice what we’re doing. Until we compel them to move 100 miles to take up the job we offer them, under threat to take away their scrounging money, I mean ‘benefits’, that is.
    Jolly good work, erm, what was your name again?
