FC United will not pay for Sky TV
At the club’s annual general meeting, FC United members voted overwhelmingly in favour of a resolution banning the club from paying for Sky TV or or other subscription / pay-per-view based television channels.
The result was a clear message that supporters are proud to remain true to many of the principles they were driven by when setting up the club in 2005.
In what could be the only vote of its kind in football, 77 per cent voted in favour, with less than a quarter voting against.
A heated debate at the AGM saw points put across both for and against the resolution in a display of democracy the club prides itself on.
This unique situation provides very strong evidence for the claims the club regularly makes about ‘doing things differently’. Long may it continue.
