Trust Registered With Financial Conduct Authority

Keith Morgan, Trust Chair

We are pleased to announce that our registration as a formal community society was confirmed this week by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

Chairman Keith Morgan said: “We are pleased to announce that our registration as a formal Community Benefit Society under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014 with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) was completed on May 18, 2022, under the name The Bluebirds Supporters Society Limited (our trading name of Cardiff City Supporters Trust will remain the same).

“This is welcome news and represents the next stage in the development of the Trust going forward. For the sake of clarity, it should be stressed that the Football Supporters Association (FSA) has always recognised CCST as a bona fide supporters’ organisation and full members of FSA and its predecessor organisation meeting all of its membership criteria.

“Indeed, we have received thanks for our work contributing to national issues related to football, including the recent Fans Led Review of football which formed part of the recent Queen’s Speech in Parliament.”

At the Trust’s annual general meeting next month, members will be asked to vote to transfer over to the new legal structure.

Nicola Cave of the FSA said: “The Football Supporters Association are delighted that Cardiff City FC supporters have taken this step towards a registered democratic society, to further strengthen their voices and complement their existing community projects. We look forward to continuing to support them and their members.”
