Make Mansfield Town the People's Club

Return to the glory days

Ask any Stags fan about the glory days and they'll probably recall the mid-70s when the club played a single season in what is now The Championship. The club has also visited Wembley on one occasion, beating Bristol Rovers to win the Freight Rover Trophy in a nailbiting final in 1987.

More recently, the club has endured a series of managerial crises which has left them struggling for consistency. Poor performances on the pitch so far this season mean relegation is, once again, a distinct possibility.

Nevertheless, Mansfield Town are a great club with a loyal fan base - the 2006/07 season saw average attendances of over 3,000 - and you deserve to be watching your team move back up the leagues to successes never before known at Field Mill.

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

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