With the well publicised financial woes at Portsmouth Football Club, it’s interesting to see a new initiative by the Pompey Supporters Trust to gauge whether there is sufficient interest within the Pompey fan base to launch a supporters ownership bid.
Interested parties are being asked to make a deposit of £100 with the full price of a share offer being £1000. Full details can be found that the Community Pompey website.
There is also a discussion on LinkedIn if you want to find out more or have your say.
I’d like to see this succeed but suspect it’ll be a struggle to get enough people to pledge £1000 to make it viable. What we really need is a rich, foreign benefactor with more money than sense. It seems to work for other clubs!
