Introducing… The Canaries Trust!
The Canaries Trust is part of a growing network of Supporters Trusts throughout the UK and is run on a non-profit basis by an elected board of volunteers, with the primary purpose of raising funds to purchase shares in Norwich City Football Club on behalf of the fans.
With modern football moving from its community roots to a more corporate approach it is only by supporters holding a significant shareholding that they can be sure of having a voice on important matters.
As well as regular communications with the club, we are also actively involved via our membership of the Football Supporters’ Association on national issues, such as trying to obtain agreement from clubs to cap the price of away tickets, to combat homophobia and racism at grounds, as well as the ongoing debate about safe standing.
However, the most important reason for the Canaries Trust to exist is that players, managers and even owners come and go but through the good times and the bad, the fans are there for life.
A large fan shareholding is an insurance policy against unforeseen events at our Football Club, and currently the Canaries Trust sits as the 14th largest shareholder in the club, on behalf of our members.
On 1st February 2018 the Trust signed its historic Memorandum of Understanding with the Club, only the second British trust to do so.
So, if you want to show your support for the club by having a stake in a growing shareholding and a channel for sensible dialogue with the club on matters that fans care about, then we would love to welcome you on board.
Membership costs just £12 per year. We also have an Alex Tettey signed Away shirt from the 2018/19 Championship winning season to give away. Anyone who signs up before the 1st November will go into a draw, with the chance of winning.
