Hull City Supporters’ Trust is asking all fans to join in a protest against the scheme at the Brentford match on Tuesday night.
Despite the very vocal concern of thousands of fans about a scheme we have dubbed “morally reprehensible”, the club seem determined to press on with it.
We’re asking all fans to hold up A4-sized red cards (HCST will be supplying these at a variety of points outside the stadium, but by all means bring a stock of your own to give to your neighbouring supporters) as the players and officials line up for the sponsor photographs. We’d also like them to blast out, “Membership scheme, you’re having a laugh!” at the same time.
Once the match has kicked off, it’s back to supporting the team, but if at half-time the club again try to sell the scheme, we’ll repeat the protest.
It’s really important that people demonstrate how unhappy they are about this iniquitous scheme. Even if you’re saving money, spare a thought for those juniors and seniors who will now be excluded from watching City in what will likely be a disastrous move by the club.
We’re calling for volunteers to help distribute the A4 “red cards” HCST have sourced. If you’re interested in helping, get in touch via any of the usual means or simply meet us at The William Gemmell pub on Anlaby Road from 6pm or at the West Park Gates from 6:45pm to collect some cards.
Please don’t dispose of the sheets wastefully; you might need them again for the Bolton and/or Rotherham matches! Otherwise, perhaps use them to write a note to the owners and deliver them to the club. We want to be environmentally friendly.
