Trust STFC community share offer
Buying shares in the future of Swindon Town
Trust STFC have signalled their intention to bring supporters together through Crowdfunder to purchase the freehold for the County Ground.
The County Ground is an important community asset and the council is keen to ensure that it has a sustainable future, and that's where you come in.
Trust STFC believe that the new, and best, custodians are the fans and their plans to purchase the famous old ground have already been met with tremendous support.
Chairman Steve Mytton says: “We’ve got a commitment to our members to keep moving on, always with an angle of what’s best for the fans and what’s best for the club."We’ve already been involved in some very exciting conversations about realistic stadium development possibilities, things that would benefit everyone, football fan or not. "
"Who knows what the knock-on effect might be if we achieve our goal - we want a catalyst for improvements to the whole town.”
Trust STFC are very close to confirming a £1 million matchfunding arrangement after two years of negotiations, but will be reaching out to their fans for an anticipated £1m community share offer.It won’t be cheap; the trust will be asking for around £500 for a share but anyone who does contribute will have an equal say in the decisions made regarding the stadium, once the freehold has been purchased.
Ultimately, supporters will be buying a share in the future of Swindon Town Football Club.
The community share offer is due to go live in March 2018 but Trust STFC are looking for an indication of support from you now.
