Groundshare ballot information meeting

The 1895 Trust is holding an open meeting this Thursday, February 12th, at 8pm in Tolka Park for all Shelbourne supporters to consult on our upcoming ballot concerning the club’s future.

The first proposed question on the ballot concerns the ownership and running of the club, while the second hopes to measure the preferences of fans regarding the club’s future home (see below for full details of proposed questions).

The purpose of the ballot is to establish a mandate for the Trust looking ahead into the club’s future – supporters are encouraged to vote for their personal preference, rather than voting based on what they see as most feasible or realistic.

Supporters will be able to cast their votes in person, at selected home matches, or by post. Please
email shelstrust@gmail.com if you have any suggestions regarding the wording of the questions or the running of the ballot.

Proposed Question 1:

Assuming no financial or other impediments exist, what is your preference for how Shelbourne FC should be owned and operated?

-A limited company operating as a members club (EG Bohemians, Shamrock Rovers)

-A limited company heavily funded by a sole individual (EG St Pat’s, Wexford Youths)

-A co-operative with a high subscription fee to fund costs (EG Sligo Rovers, Cork City, Finn Harps)

-A co-operative with a nominal subscription fee (EG AFC Wimbledon, FC United of Manchester; this is the 1895 Trust’s current model)

-A limited company operated by a number of volunteer businessmen/women (Shelbourne’s current model)

Proposed Question 2:

What is your preferred – in order of preference 1 through 5 if necessary – location and arrangement for a future home for Shelbourne FC?

-A redeveloped Tolka Park.

-Groundshare in Dalymount Park.

-A greenfield site on the Northside of the city.

– A municipal stadium in Ringsend/Irishtown.

– Other (please state).
