Yes if it's not Yankspurs or Johnweldon10
February this year, Rob Couhig (an American lawyer and cohort of Donald Trump) purchased 75% of Wycombe, fans only own 25% now.
Ah, that's the Feliciana crowd, isn't it, it rang a bell it had changed from total fan ownership.February this year, Rob Couhig (an American lawyer and cohort of Donald Trump) purchased 75% of Wycombe, fans only own 25% now.
I believe it is only Exeter City of the League clubs in England that are fully Supporters Trust owned now with Grimsby and Carlisle being like Wycombe with Supporters Trusts having minority shareholdings.
They’ll be a new ‘Adult’ section of the Spurs shop available under A&C
There are exceptions though
Bayer Leverkusen - Bayer majority owned
Wolfsburg - VW majority owned
RB Leipzig - Red Bull 100% owned, either directly or by directors that work for Red Bull.
Hoffenheim, founder of SAP owned, and those latter 2 have caused of lot of resentment there
There are exceptions to Bayer and Wolfsburg for historical reasons due to the teams being inextricably linked to the two companies. That's completely different to a Man City/Chelsea type situation for example. The Hopp/Hoffenheim one should never have been allowed IMO, to me there's no legitimate argument for letting that slide.Indeed they are, but all the "fan members" of the club are also members of the Board of Red Bull, meaning in effect they 100% control the club.
