Why be a member?
Last season, anybody donating to the club was automatically enrolled as a member of FC United of Manchester, however for season 2006/07 we will be operating a membership scheme with a fixed price (as agreed by the membership at the General Meeting in March) - £10 adults and £3 Under 18s.
Membership of FC United of Manchester is unique because you become a co-owner of the football club. You are purchasing one share, which cannot be sold or transferred; this entitles you to have a direct input into the running of the club. In FC United`s short history our members have already decided the name of the club, the club badge, to keep the playing shirt free of sponsorship and members have also elected the board members to run the club on their behalf.
As a member you have the opportunity to propose a resolution that will be put before a General Meeting of the club; this way not only can members vote on issues that are presented to them by their elected board, they can also actively drive the agenda of the club. If you are not a member of FC United you will not have a say in how the club is run; no other football club in the country affords its members such control over its direction. It is vital that every FC United supporter takes advantage of this privilege to ensure that the club is run in the manner best suiting its fans. Without membership you have no voice and no influence over the direction of the club, a club that belongs to us all.
Both adult and junior members will also receive a club yearbook detailing the club`s historic first season.
Please note that if you have purchased a Season Ticket this does not enrol you as a member; you will still need to pay the membership fee as well. By becoming a member of FC United you agree to be bound by the rules of the Industrial and Provident Society, full details of which can be found on our website at www.fc-utd.co.uk . The share that you purchase in FC United must be renewed annually.
