How to help Cheltenham Town FC

Make Cheltenham Town the People's Club

Taking Cheltenham Town forwards

After a ten year rise through the divisions from the Conference, Cheltenham Town are currently in League One. As all Cheltenham fans know, the club has the potential to climb higher in the tables.

The club is in a reasonably sound financial position, but inconsistent performances and a series of recent managerial changes mean relegation is once again a distinct possibility and their bid to climb higher through the football league is faltering. The club faces the prospect of dropping back into League Two for the second time in five years.

Nevertheless, Cheltenham Town are a great club with a loyal fan base - average attendances are often over 4,000 - and you deserve to be watching your team moving up through the leagues towards success never before known at Whaddon Road.

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

Cheltenham Town - The People's Club?

The People’s Club are looking to sign up at least 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 Cheltenham Town 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 Cheltenham Town 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 Cheltenham Town forwards - and, who knows, maybe one day we'll be boarding coaches to take us to Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge and The Emirates every other Saturday.

Most importantly, what we won't do is change Cheltenham Town 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 Cheltenham Town 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 often say, your vote counts. The People's Club is built 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, Cheltenham Town is not The People's Club. It can only become so if you sign up and choose Cheltenham Town 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 Cheltenham Town as your choice for the club we should buy. Then tell all your friends about us - their votes count too! If Cheltenham Town 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 Cheltenham to encourage fans to sign up, so please contact us if you think you can get enough fans behind you and make Cheltenham Town The People's Club.
