Weekly News Update

April 20, 2018
After back to back wins against QPR and Burton Albion, City showed why they are where they are in the league with a disappointing 1-0 defeat against Sheffield Wednesday last Saturday. The Tigers didn’t perhaps get the rub of the green and could have quite easily earned a point against their Yorkshire rivals but it wasn’t to be..
This Saturday City head to Bristol City. The Robins need a win to keep their slim play off hopes alive whilst a win for City will guarantee survival baring a significant swing in goal difference. We wish a safe journey to all those travelling.
Here’s your Trust update…
Hull City Ticket Model
You are all no doubt aware that the Club has recently decided to ignore the votes submitted in the original ballot relating to a proposed ticketing model for next season and instead issued a 2nd ballot without any consultation with the Supporters Committee.
Needless to say as a Board we have continued to pursue this matter with both the Club and also the Football Supporters Federation and Supporters Direct, both of whom the Trust are proud members.
