Mat Kendrick today (25/02/14) posted an article on the Birmingham Mail website stating that Villa supporters need to unite collectively to form a “supporters union” with clout like Liverpool’s Spirit of Shankly.
Well, that “supporters union” already exists at the Villa – it is the Aston Villa Supporters’ Trust.
The Spirit of Shankly have done a tremendous job since its formation, tackling ticket pricing and other fan issues. Along with our fellow premier league supporter trusts, such as MUST (Man Utd’s Supporters Trust), Tottenham Supporters Trust etc, the Aston Villa Supporters’ Trust hopes to be a champion of Villa supporter issues. We are members of Supporters Direct, the governing body of the supporter trust movement, and affiliated to the Football Supporters Federation.
We are currently preparing our relaunch strategy, like Tottenham’s trust has done in the last year, and will soon be requesting input from members in a survey.
How do we get clout? We need you! We need you to be a member of the Supporters Trust and be involved. The aim is to represent Villa supporters to a level that has never been done before. The more members we have, the stronger our voice will be in representing our collective voice with the Club, so that they will listen to us.
Also, if you have a Villa website, facebook group or Twitter page, join our affiliate network.
