Football is the global language, it is the world’s favourite sport, its reach goes far beyond any political movement. Football’s worldwide popularity and power instils a sense of duty that football clubs must care and serve the society that they reside in. The Trust wants Worcester City FC to perform this duty, to devote its existence to serve the supporters and Worcester.
The mission of the Trust is simple, and is best summarised in three points:
- Worcester City FC to be converted into a community owned football club – run by the community, for the community
- To Bring City home
- Benefit the whole of Worcester and contribute to the culture of our vibrant city
As of November 2021, The WCFC Supporters Trust owns 50+1% of the share capital in Worcester City FC Ltd making it a Fan Owned Football Club & as the Trust is a Community Benefit Society, the club is Community Owned.
The Club returned to Worcester at Claines Lane for the start of the 2020/21 Season, however due to the Covid situation the season only lasted a couple of months so the 2021/22 will, we hope, be the first complete season back in Worcester since 2013.
The Trust and Club continues to contribute to the culture of our City and as things return to normal following the tribulations of the past 18 months we hope to continue to be of benefit to the whole of the City.
During 2021 we once again organised the Sports Zone at the Worcester Show which this year took place on Pitchcroft and was once again a resounding success. The aim of the Sports Zone at the show is to promote active participation of sports and activities in the City of Worcester and give people of all ages an opportunity to try a new activity or sport.
We were also involved in the Community Zone of The Festival of Water Event held on Perdiswell at the end of August.
