Hull City fans look to strengthen heritage rules

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

The Hull City Supporters trust are seeking to strengthen FA rules that protect a football club’s heritage and ensure that football supporters have a say in deciding on any changes to their club’s playing name, colours and badges.

Two separate motions will be submitted to the FSF’s AGM on Sunday – asking football fans from across the country to back their proposed changes to FA regulations around playing name changes.

The motions also ask the FSF to engage with the FA to ensure that any new rules in this area have proper supporter consultation at their heart.

“The Hull City Supporters’ Trust is delighted that the Football Association has once again rejected the application to rename our club Hull Tigers,” the Trust said this week.

“The FA Council has now turned down the club’s owners twice in successive years and today’s vote saw an increased majority against the plan; there is clearly little chance of a future attempt achieving any success.

“The Trust wishes to record our gratitude to the FA for securing the heritage of Hull City and for listening to the supporters of the club. This decision will also be welcomed by fans of other clubs who may be concerned that their clubs might, at some point in the future, face a similar threat.

“We hope that fans of other clubs don’t have to experience the angst that City fans have endured over the past two years.”
