Aims of the Trust

Welcome to the Cardiff City Supporters Trust website.

What is the Cardiff City Supporters Trust?

The Trust is a democratic, not-for-profit group of Cardiff City supporters, committed to giving City fans a voice in the decision-making process of the Club, and to strengthening the links between Cardiff City and the community it serves. If you’re a Cardiff City fan, joining the Trust is a great way to express your commitment to the Bluebirds.

The Trust is run entirely by volunteers and is led by a board of directors, elected by their fellow members. Every adult member has an equal share in the Trust (and a share in Cardiff City through the Trust’s shareholding in the Club), they all have a vote, and they all have a voice.

Although it’s a fans group, the Trust, as a legally constituted Society governed by law, is more than just another “supporters club.”  It’s a campaigning organisation which seeks to represent the views of Cardiff City fans to the owners and executives at the Club.

Whilst always wanting to work with the Club, we are independent of it, giving us the right to criticise and question when necessary.

Owners, directors, shareholders, players and managers come and go but the Trust is a reminder to the Club that the main stakeholders in Cardiff City are the fans.

What Does the Trust Do?

* Maintains a regular dialogue with the Club on behalf of supporters

* Encourages the Club to take account of its supporters and the community it serves, in its decision-making

* Strengthens the bond between Cardiff City, its supporters and the local community

* Maintains a significant shareholding in Cardiff City on behalf of our members

* Presents a positive image for Cardiff City, helping to overturn negative attitudes and prejudice towards the Club.

* Maintains a contingency fund for further CCFC share purchases or to help the Club in troubled times

* Uses members’ money to benefit members, the community and other appropriate good causes.

* Ultimately, our aim is to achieve supporter representation on the board of Cardiff City

THE TRUST GIVES CITY FANS A VOICE. THE MORE MEMBERS WE HAVE, THE LOUDER THAT VOICE AND THE GREATER OUR INFLUENCE.  PLEASE JOIN US.
