Hull City AFC to be sold to a Supporter Co-operative.

Mr Assem and Mr Ehab Allam,

The time has come for you to name your price and for the people of Hull to rise up and see if they can meet that price and buy the Club. The Club can then be run as a supporter-owned co-operative: run by the people, for the people.

There is a precedent for this: many clubs are owned by their supporters; it is the norm in Germany. Barcelona, arguably the world's biggest Club is also supporter owned, as are several English clubs.

The Allam family has little to sell: the Stadium is already community-owned by the Council, the Academy is based at Bishop Burton College, as the weeks roll by, the playing list diminishes. Enough is Enough. Name your price Mr Allam and let the people take control.

Local and national businesses are of course very welcome to support and be part of this campaign.

Why is this important?

The future of any football Club is important. The Club could and should be by run by the people, for the people.

The Council own the Stadium - this isn't as fanciful an idea as it seems. With the Council and local business involved this can happen. Please share; we need more signatures.
