For immediate release
Darlington Supporters United launches its campaign for community ownership
Today sees the launch of Darlington Supporters United at http://www.darlosupportersunited.com and its campaign for community ownership of the football club.
DSU is a group of Darlington supporters’ organisations and individual supporters who are investigating the viability of moving our club into community ownership. We are receiving advice and support from experts in community ownership Supporters Direct.
We are a community controlled organisation and the plan is to take at least majority control of the football club to ensure it is run for the benefit its fans and the wider community of our town. To do this we need to raise at least £250,000.
First of all, we need fans and the community to make a financial pledge to make this a reality. You can do this on the front page of the website. If you want to know more, head to www.darlosupportersunited.com
Remember, we don’t want money now, but we ask that in making a pledge, that it is followed through if and when we are ready to proceed.
If it’s good enough for Chester, Wrexham, AFC Telford, Exeter City, AFC Wimbledon and more than twenty other clubs, it’s good enough for Darlington.
