What's happening at Ebbsfleet?

Ebbsfleet United have been bought by a group of football fans under a scheme which will allow the fans to run the club. Now hats off to them, and we genuinely wish all involved every success. For a non-league club (or any club outside of the top two divisions of English football) this kind of acquisition will bring a massive amount of benefits and, hopefully, a great amount of success on the pitch.

To their credit, the organisers of the scheme have picked a club with potential and with relatively easy reach of London. However, this is of little consolation to the vast numbers of football fans in the Midlands, the North and South West England who have signed up to the scheme. Living so far from the club, they stand little chance of ever seeing the side that they own part of actually play.

Maybe you're one of these disgruntled fans? If so, maybe the People's Club can help? Sign up to The People's Club and vote for the team you want to buy.

We're keen that you choose a team close to where you live, that you really care about, and, most importantly, that you want to have an input into the day-to-day running of for years to come. Maybe your club will be the one that we eventually buy - the team with the most votes will be the ones we approach once the funds are in the bank to buy a club.

So how exactly will The People's Club help my football 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.

Firstly, we'll bring much needed investment to the club we buy in a number of ways. We expect to bring in excess of £1,000,000 investment per season to the chosen club - mainly from annual membership fees paid for by the fans. You can expect gate receipts at home games to go up as new 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 club will receive a massive publicity boost as the local and national media all monitor the success of the club.

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

We're giving you the opportunity to get truly involved, and have a real say in the running of the club. 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 football fan feels. We certainly won't be relocating the team to Milton Keynes or mucking around with the club crest.
