Manchester United Supporters Trust open consultation on Fan Share scheme

The Manchester United Supporters Trust (MUST) has started a consultation process with members on proposals for creating a new Fan Share programme.

The initial response has been deemed “overwhelmingly positive”, but all MUST members will be voted on by August 9 before the proposals can be sent to the Manchester United board for approval.

Only at that stage can the full details of the stock offering be published, giving fans the opportunity to participate.

However, it is clear that under the scheme, fan shares would have the same voting weight as B shares owned by the Glazer family, although United’s owners would not benefit from the scheme.

MUST believe that fans holding shares is the best long term guarantee to ensure supporters have a much greater influence on the direction of the club than in the past.
