Taking Burton Albion into League football

As any Brewers fan will know, Burton Albion's rise through non-league football has been a tale of dedication and belief. In sixty years, they have never reached the Football League, despite the last six seasons being spent in the Conference - within touching distance of the league proper.

Financially stable, thanks particularly to the 2005/06 FA Cup run which saw the side earn a draw against Manchester United at Pirelli Stadium, Burton continue to knock on the door of the Football League. The club enjoys a loyal fan base - attendance this season are around 1,700 on average - and a good start to the 2007/08 season sees them in with a chance of promotion... but against some tough opposition.

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

Burton Albion - 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 Burton Albion 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.

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 Burton Albion 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're giving you the opportunity to take Burton Albion 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 Burton Albion 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 Burton Albion 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 truly 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, Burton Albion is not The People's Club. It can only become so if you sign up and choose Burton Albion 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 Burton Albion as your choice for the club we should buy. Then tell all your friends about us - their votes count too! If Burton Albion 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 Burton to encourage fans to sign up, so please contact us if you think you can get enough fans behind you and make Burton Albion The People's Club.
