HCAFC Meeting Review

October 8, 2017
The recently formed Hull City Action For Change (HCAFC) Group held their first public event prior to the team’s 6-1 defeat of Birmingham City last Saturday, 30 September.
The Group have 6 key objectives including the return of proper concessions and meaningful fan consultation, but overall they seek to unite all Hull City fans and make the match day experience a happy one.
A mixture of ages were included in the roughly 150 fans who attended the William Gemmell Club where the attendees were entertained by local musician Vinnie Whitehead. Speakers included organiser Chris Smith and Geoff Bielby, Chairman of the Hull City Supporters Trust.
A giant ‘Allam Out’ flag was unveiled with attendees free to sign it with their own personal message for the Club’s owners. Badges and balloons were given out free of charge with the same slogan.
Enthusiasts within the Group say a large majority of Hull City fans believe the departure of our current owners is the only way to bring stability to the Club, put smiles on faces and bring a ‘feel good factor’ back to the KCOM. They are preparing for a new era and want to keep the current issues at the Club in the public domain for as long as is required.
It’s clear the HCAFC are fully supportive of the relentless work of the HCST and their pursuit of proper concessions and consultation via the political route with the help of the FSF (Football Supporters Federation) and SD (Supporters Direct). Evidence of this came in the form of a representative from these groups, there was an excellent speech from Richard Irving of Supporters Direct which drew warm applause.
Organisers make it clear they don’t necessarily expect their actions to be the final push to make the Allam family leave Hull City. They are committed to a prolonged campaign to highlight the need for change at the Club.
Further events are planned for matches before Christmas. Anyone wanting to to assist the Group should contact them on Twitter or Facebook at @HCAction4ChangeĀ
