Hull City supporters’ group City Till We Die have launched a membership scheme.

November 25, 2013

For £2, supporters can become a CTWD member, and do their bit to help protect the name of Hull City AFC, while supporting the Tigers on the pitch.

At the same time, CTWD announces that it will form a Supporters’ Trust in the New Year with the intention of taking a stake in ownership of the club and the KC Stadium. In the meantime, the group has indicated its full support for, and participation in, the Hull City of Culture 2017 award.

In recent statements Dr Allam, owner of Hull City AFC (that remains the registered club name at the FA) has dismissed City Till We Die as a minority, only a couple of hundred strong. While we believe that number to be false, we accept the challenge and so have launched a membership scheme that will give the No To Hull Tigers campaign added legitimacy and demonstrable numeric support. Supporters can sign up online at We will be accepting written applications and cash payments in due course. The membership scheme is only the start of our continued positive campaign looking to an even brighter future for Hull City AFC.

As long ago as 2010 Dr Allam announced his preference for supporter ownership of Hull City (1) and this was reiterated when the CTWD team met him last month. He asked us not to mention the supporter ownership proposals following that meeting, a request that seems redundant now he has hinted at it in the club’s latest statement (2).

We are in discussions with umbrella group Supporters Direct to reinvigorate Tigers Co-op (3), the existing Supporters’ Trust for Hull City, and provide an independent voice for Hull City fans across the globe. The Trust will be established in the New Year by merging City Till We Die with Tigers Co-op. It will provide a vehicle for supporters to take part ownership of the club in line with Dr Allam’s wishes and, perhaps, a role in managing the KC Stadium and its surrounding development potential. Not only will this initiative provide supporters with a stake in the future of their beloved Hull City, it could provide a revenue stream that will allow Dr Allam’s investment to be repaid over time.

Once a committee is elected, we will also be throwing our weight behind the recent awarding to Hull of 2017 City of Culture status. Hull City AFC is a massive part of our great city’s culture (along with Hull’s other famous sporting teams) and we want to do everything we can to celebrate that.
