Making Rovers Great

As any Gashead will know, Rovers is a club with unfulfilled potential - a sleeping giant.

Years of operating with the uncertainty over the ground and underperforming on the pitch have set the tone for general disappointment, and results so far this season mean relegation is a distinct possibility.

However, Bristol Rovers are a fabulous club with a very loyal fan base - even the number 12 shirt has been permanently retired to recognise the support - and you deserve to be watching your team playing well and playing in a higher league, and making you truly proud of being a Gashead.

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

Bristol Rovers - 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 Bristol Rovers to be The People's Club, then what will we do? Firstly, we'll bring much needed investment to the club in a number of ways. A large proportion of the annual membership fees will be ploughed into the transfer market - in excess of £1,000,000 per year on transfer funds alone - to bring in good quality players as and when they are needed.

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 The Pirates 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 will 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 Bristol Rovers forwards - and, who knows, maybe one day you'll be boarding coaches to take you to the likes of Old Trafford, Anfield and White Hart Lane every other Saturday.

Importantly, what we will not do is change Bristol Rovers 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 Gashead fan feels. Rest assured, we won't be mucking around with the club crest or relocating the team to Milton Keynes.

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, Bristol Rovers is not The People's Club. It can only become so if you sign up and choose Bristol Rovers 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 Rovers as your choice for the club we should buy. Then go on and tell your friends - their votes count too! If Bristol Rovers 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 local representative in and around Bristol to encourage fans to sign up, so please contact us if you think you can help get enough fans to make Rovers The People's Club.
