Liverpool Fans The Real Future Of Club

Liverpool fans could have the chance to acquire a sizeable stake in their club after moves were made to establish a financial foundation for such an investment. Since supporters groups Spirit of Shankly and Share Liverpool officially joined forces discussions have been taking place with Partners Credit Union to create a secure scheme for the venture. While there is at present little chance of this scheme making a 100 per cent purchase of the club – not least because current rules only allow those resident in the Merseyside to take part – there is a very real possibility of the new fan-based investment group becoming part of a consortium that takes over the club or investing at a future stage once new owners are in place. Similar ideas have been put forward before but the enlistment of Partners Credit Union means that a significant step has been made towards making it a reality.
