My Football Club Update

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about My Football Club.

On Wednesday this week they announced that they have reached their target of 50,000 members and are now in negotiations with three four clubs. The have a budget of GBP 1.5 million, so should be able to find something interesting to spend that on.

You might wonder what the clubs who are likely to be bought (not to mention their existing fans) think of the scheme. I guess time will tell once a purchase is announced. Meantime they don’t seem to be too stressed about it. I suppose that it doesn’t compare too unfavourably with being taken over by an odd foreign billionaire.

Here is a local news item from Anglia TV whose local team, Cambridge United, is #3 on the hit list:

I’m in. If you want to join the fun you can register online (cost: 35 quid).

  1. I’ve tried a few times over the last few days and keep getting a message that they can’t take payments from overseas. How did you get around that?

  2. Yeah I got that message too. I just pressed F5 a few times and eventually it came up with a PayPal page.

    To be fair I haven’t had an email confirming my membership or anything, so perhaps it wasn’t processed correctly??

    I hope you can get in soon.

  3. I love this idea, but I’d prefer NZ did something to try and buy a rugby club in the UK. I’ve been telling anyone who’ll listen for years that it’s in the NZRU’s best interests to try and purchase a UK club to extend the AB’s brand and also to give the players an option to play overseas but return, same with coaches. You’re in Wellington Rowan, walk down the road and give Jock Hobbs a word for me….
