The Worcester City Football Club Board can confirm that at the Annual General Meeting on 28th February 2019 shareholders voted in favour of the special resolution to change the constitution of the Football Club to allow for a conversion to the community ownership model.
Collectively, the Football Club and Supporters’ Trust Boards are unanimously pleased that the special resolution was passed and that shareholders were onboard with and support the vision for the Club with community ownership as the fulcrum.
Club Chairman Steve Goode said ‘Today was a significant milestone for all those involved, so much work has gone into getting to this point today, this is testament to the appetite and foresight of the shareholders to identify the proposal of community ownership as the outstanding opportunity to progress the club forwards. This is hoped to catalyse seismic changes in the way the club is viewed and engaged with. We hope that key stakeholders recognise tonight’s vote as signifying a break from the past to a prosperous and bright future for Worcester City FC’.
Club Director and Trust Chairman Dave Wood added ‘Tonight’s decision by shareholders to allow a change to community ownership seals the fact beyond doubt that the Football Club and Supporters’ Trust are unified and collectively focused on pushing this Football Club forwards as one that is sustainable, inclusive, transparent and committed to contributing to the City we proudly parade the name of and are determined to return to’.
Details on the second meeting to ratify the vote will be confirmed in the coming days.
The Football Club Board would like to sincerely thank all those who attended tonight’s meeting,
Transparency and communication are paramount to the Club and Trust. We will provide updates on the next steps to be taken in due course.
