Official Boycott decision reached by CFU Members
Written by City Fans United

Last week, the CFU committee sent out a Survey to its members involving questions regarding the future of Chester City Football Club.

 

One of the questions asked was whether the current situation at the club merited an official boycott, and as of midday today, the result of that was a resounding 72% in favour of such a move, with an additional 23% considering it as an option, leaving only 5% against.

It is on this basis that we are now recommending, based on the supporters views, that all members of City Fans United officially boycott all remaining home games until such a point where the club has been placed into local reputable ownership. It is also clear that the majority of CFU members want the current owners and shareholders to depart the club and sever all ties with the club. Chester City at present, sits at its lowest ebb in its 125 year history, facing relegation to the sixth tier of football.

During this Survey, which found that 99.5% of respondents believed a change of ownership was essential, the CFU committee have made no recommendations, or tried to influence its members into making this decision.

Also contained in the survey, was a question on whether a phoenix club would be supported, should the current club fold, which again, is not our wish, but we have to plan for all possibilities. Based on this we can report that 98% of respondents to the survey backed the idea of the establishment of such a club should the current one cease to exist.

Full details of the Survey results will be published in the next few days on www.cityfansunited.com
