Make Weymouth the People's Club

Taking Weymouth into League football

As any Terras fan will know, Weymouth has never been a Football League club. Promotion back to the Conference (or Blue Square Premier League as it is now known) in 2005/06 returned the club to the top level of non-league football after a nine year abscence.

Despite promotion, the club remains financially vulnerable. In their first season back in the Conference, the entire team were transfer-listed in order to secure the club's future. With resources as tight as they are, the chances of mounting a strong challenge for promotion are slim this season, and relegation is once again looming as a distinct possibility.

Nevertheless, the club enjoys a loyal fan base - attendance this season are just over 1,300 on average - and those fans deserve to see their side not only competing in the Conference, but striving for promotion to the Football League proper without financial problems hanging over the club.

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

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