What are Supporters Trusts?
The basic definition of a Supporters Trust is a democratic, not-for-profit organisation of supporters, committed to strengthening the voice for supporters in the decision making process at a club, and strengthening the links between the club and the community it serves. Supporters Trusts are recognized by many organisations, including the FA, and are held accountable for their actions by Supporters Direct, The FCA and of course its membership.
WCFC Supporters Trust Aims and Objectives- what do we really hope to achieve?
Many Trusts are set up when the football clubs are going through hard times or are in danger of disappearing altogether. This was one of the reasons the City Trust was reborn. We are determined to do what we can to help safeguard the future of the club and to ensure that it not only survives but that it should do so in a stronger position (and ultimately on) the pitch. We will do this to the best of our abilities on behalf of the supporters of the club- we will not allow ourselves to be associated with any other group that does not share our vision or ethos. Just as important is the need to ensure that the local community is able to benefit from a well-run club that we can all be proud of. Be prepared to see the City Trust getting involved with and instigating ideas and initiatives within the community making sure there will be a WCFC fit for future generations to follow.
Why is it important that I join the WCFC Supporters Trust?
The Trust aims are to help safeguard the future of the club and to make Worcester City FC a strong and active leader in the community; but any Trust is only as strong and effective as its membership. We shouldn’t be under any illusion about the challenge we’re undertaking as a Trust. It’s going to be about hard work and effort, rolling up our sleeves and becoming a part of the process and ultimately, safeguarding the future of the City. We need to drive membership, raise funds and maintain a high profile. We need to re-establish the links between the club and the community so the club can act as a symbol of that community for everyone to support. The Supporters’ Trust is about making that really happen and you will be an integral part of what we do . Join the Trust and let’s work together so that the City of Worcester is able to benefit from a well-run club that we can all be proud of.
