The Trust is disappointed, though unsurprised, to hear that the owners of Hull City AFC are intending to resubmit to the Football Association their proposal to change our club’s historic name.

We have today written to the FA to ask if they can confirm for us whether this is the case, and also for them to set out for us what the process for this application will be and what timescale will accompany it.  We have also asked them to clarify whether a fresh submission is required from ourselves; if the club is making a new submission, we would welcome the opportunity to do the same.

We will update you once we have heard back from the FA.
