The Labour Party launched its party manifesto yesterday (Monday 13th April 2015) and promised to "give football fans a voice in club boardrooms":

"Football clubs are an important part of many people's identity and sense of belonging. They are more than just businesses. But despite their importance in the lives of their members and supporters, too often there are no effective means for fans to have a say in how their clubs are run.

"Labour will provide the means for supporters to be a genuine part of their clubs. We will introduce legislation to enable accredited supporters trusts to appoint and remove at least two of the directors of a football club and to purchase shares when the club changes hands.

The Viking Supporters Co-operative welcomes any proposals from political parties that aim to strengthen the voice of football fans.
