Blues Trust: Membership Appeal
The extremely disappointing events of the past few days have once again raised questions about the intent and competence of those that own and manage our football club. The continued closure of the Tilton and Kop stands….and with no immediate prospect of reopening, despite the sale of full season tickets for both….is as incredulous as it is damaging.
The issues with the stands have been known for 8 months now. And during a period of lockdown too, when supporters were not allowed to visit sporting venues. Now that they are, at St Andrew’s we cannot!
Last week the Trust reported that we had attended a supporters forum with club officials which, at that time, we regarded as a positive step forward on the part of the club. We were keen to acknowledge the measures being taken to improve engagement with supporters. But we cautioned against too much optimism too soon. With no mention made at the meeting of ongoing uncertainty about the opening of the two stands, it seems that caution was well placed.
It is clear that problems still run deep at Birmingham City and it is really important that efforts are made to hold to account those making decisions which affect us as supporters.
The Trust is ready and willing to do that. We are also ready and willing to be constructive with those in charge at St Andrew’s because we only want the club to be the very best that it can be. To be truly effective, however, we need more supporters to join our ranks and play an active part in the challenge that we face. If you are a Bluenose, no matter how long your affiliation with the club or where in the world you live, please consider becoming a member of the Trust to help shape the future wellbeing of our club.
Blues Trust is an organisation for supporters of Birmingham City Football Club, run on a voluntary basis by fans of the club.
