Fan-Owned Football Clubs

EDM number 542 in 2010-12, proposed by John Leech on 19/07/2010.
Categorised under the topic of Sports.

That this House recognises the many advantages of the ownership structures of football clubs like FC United of Manchester and AFC Wimbledon where supporters have a direct say in the running of their clubs; applauds the community work carried out by such clubs, often in areas that have been neglected by the larger teams in their area; and furtherrecognises that such fan-ownership structures are a welcome change to the greed that is now witnessed at the top levels of English football, where the wishes of loyal supporters are so often ignored.

This motion has been signed by a total of 31 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
