Blues TrustWelcome from Birmingham City Supporter's Trust
Fans are important and should be heard: Make our voice louder
Blues Trust was formed on 21 February 2012 and is an organisation for fans of Birmingham City Football Club, run by fans of BCFC. Our mission is to ensure fans have a true voice in the things that affect our club and how it is run.
If you really care about BCFC and want to affect positive change then we want you on board.
In its short existence the Trust has already secured the long term future of our stadium as an asset of community value, as well as establishing itself as a credible and respected supporter group.
- We are a shareholder in Birmingham City Plc
Blues Trust is a member of Supporters Direct whose goal is to promote sustainable spectator sports clubs based on supporters involvement and community ownership.
- Blues Trust is affiliated to The Football Supporter’s Federation, the democratic organisation representing the rights of fans.

So, why is it that Supporters’ Trusts are the organisations who step in when things go wrong?
We would like to have board members who possess a wide variety of qualifications and expertise. But professional expertise is not essential. What is essential is that board members are voting members of Blues Trust, have a desire to help and time available to make a contribution.
Before last year’s AGM, some board members spent time discussing what we’d like to do and how we could be better organised. We decided that it would be good to have nine board members.
Football supporters everywhere were shocked and saddened when Bury FC were expelled from the EFL.
I kept checking the news on Bury and hoping until I saw the EFL statement. The statement expressed regret, it said, “the EFL Board has unanimously determined with enormous regret that Bury’s membership be withdrawn”. It didn’t apologise for its own part in the club’s downfall, for its rules that allowed an unsuitable owner to buy the club but didn’t have any way of getting rid of that owner.
Blues Trust is pleased to announce that it has today received confirmation that St. Andrew’s has been reauthorised by the Council as an Asset of Community Value
