How can you help Altrincham?

Make Altrincham the People's Club

Drive Altrincham into League football

As an Altrincham fan, you'll know the ups and downs of the club in recent seasons. After almost two decades as members of the Conference (or Alliance Premier League as it was originally known), Altrincham were relegated at the end of the 1996/97 season to the Northern Premier League and have been on a rollercoaster between the two divisions ever since.

After regaining promotion to the Conference for a third time in 2004/05, the club has narrowly escaped relegation in both of the past two seasons after being reprieved - despite finishing 22nd (after a points penalty) and 21st last season. With performances on the pitch not improving too much this season, relegation is once again a distinct possibility.

Nevertheless, Altrincham are a fantastic club with real potential and you deserve to be watching your team not only competing in the Conference once again, but seeking promotion to the Football League proper for the first time in it's history.

If you would like the chance to help put Altrincham on the path to glory and have a say in the future of the club, then maybe The People's Club can help.

Altrincham - The People's Club?

The People’s Club are looking to sign up 40,000 football fans who are interesting in buying and running a real football club, which will be chosen by our members. We expect to bring in excess of £1,500,000 investment per season to the chosen club.

If our members choose Altrincham to become The People's Club, then what will we do?

Firstly, we'll bring much needed investment to the club in a number of ways.

You can expect gate receipts at home games to go up as members travel to see games and boost the attendance figures. Innovative commercial activities will bring in additional revenue and the very nature of The People's Club concept will naturally mean Altrincham will receive a massive publicity boost as the local and national media all monitor the success of the club.

Secondly, you, the fans, will run the club. You'll have the ability to vote on whether to hire or fire a manager, which players start each game each week and who is on the bench. As the transfer window opens, you'll be able to choose who we sign and who we transfer list.

We are giving you the opportunity to take Altrincham forwards - and, who knows, maybe one day we'll be boarding coaches to take us to Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge and Villa Park every other Saturday.

Most importantly, what we won't do is change Altrincham for the worse. We're all football fans and we fully understand the importance of the heritage and identity of the club and the feeling of belonging that each and every Altrincham fan feels. We certainly won't be relocating the team to Milton Keynes or mucking around with the club crest.




How will your membership help?

As politicians are fond of saying, your vote counts. The People's Club is built entirely on the concept that the fans know best and the collective decision making power that our members have will ensure success for many years to come.

At the moment, Altrincham is not The People's Club. It can only become so if you sign up and choose Altrincham as the club you think we should make a bid for once we have enough members and therefore enough funds to do so.

Register for free and select Altrincham as your choice for the club we should buy. Then tell all your friends about us - their votes count too! If Altrincham is one of the most popular choices, it stands a very good chance of attracting substantial investment.

We're also on the lookout for a representative in Manchester to encourage fans to sign up, so please contact us if you think you can get enough fans behind you and make Altrincham The People's Club.
