Supporters Direct welcomes manifesto commitment

Trusts in football

Andy Burnham, Chair of Supporters Direct, today welcomed the commitment to Supporters Direct in the Labour Party manifesto:


"5 years ago, Supporters Direct didn't exist, and didn't feature in the election, and it's down to the work of the organisation and of the people in supporters trusts all over the country that we're now in the centre of the thinking of a major political party. We've come from the edge to be seen as key figures in the game, and the idea that fans should be involved in their clubs is now commonplace. The next step is to help complete the transformation of clubs into proper community institutions."



  • Supporters Direct is a democratic, Industrial and Provident Society, funded by public money and with 125 member trusts.

  • With a combined membership of over 85,000 people, Supporters Trusts have now put more than 10 million into the game and own or control 10 clubs in England and Scotland.
