Supporters Direct has been working since 2000 to help supporters gain influence in the running and ownership of their club. In the last fifteen years we have helped our members to establish 192 trusts in the UK and we have worked with supporters to purchase and develop more than 40 community owned clubs. We have supported these members in raising more than £50 million to be reinvested back into their clubs and communities including £6 million through community shares projects; an area where we are market leaders.
Our mission is:
To support communities and sport in Scotland
We have been active in Scotland since 2002 where we’ve helped establish over 30 Supporters Trusts and groups. Of these, 18 have some form of representation within the governance of their clubs and a further 6 have majority ownership of their club.
