Galway Soccer Co-Op Launch

Category : co-op news

A supporter-run co-operative which will have a say in the day-to-day running of Galway United will be launched on 8th December at the Hotel Meyrick (6pm).

A group have set up the Galway Soccer Co-Op / Comharchumann Sacair Na Gaillimhe Teo after six months of hard work and it has the full backing of the Galway United board.

The co-op has two seats on the Galway United board, which have been filled from within the working group until a full AGM of the organisation is held before the start of the Premier Division season, which is scheduled to kick-off in March.

The aim of the co-op is to promote soccer in the community, but in particular to work towards a scenario where the club is eventually exclusively fan-owned, such as is the case with Cork City amongst others.

Membership of the co-op will pay €30 and for that, fans will have an opportunity to elect two of its members onto the board of Galway United on an annual basis, as well as having the chance to avail of an extended discount on a season ticket which is exclusive to co-op members.

The launch is open to all supporters of soccer in the West.
