Altrincham FC Seek New Investment

Thu 13th Jul 2017 | Clubs Ownership

At a recent Extraordinary General Meeting, the shareholders of Altrincham Football Club passed a series of motions which will now allow the club to bring in new investors.

A new controlling share in Altrincham FC has been created that is now being offered for sale (equal to roughly 51% of the football club).

These shares are offered by the football club, not by a private individual, and Altrincham FC are now in a position to sell these shares to a suitable investor(s) with any finance generated then providing a financial boost for the football club – a football club that already operates free of debt.

Current Altrincham chairman Grahame Rowley said: “We’re determined to get Altrincham back to where the club belongs – at the pinnacle of non-league football.

“It now opens the door for the right investor or investors to get involved with this fantastic club.”

Along with an established fan base and a rich history, the huge growth potential at Altrincham FC means that this investment opportunity represents a unique opportunity to be involved in rebuilding one of the most famous names in non-league football as they begin life at Evo-Stik League level for the first ever time.

Off-the-field, Altrincham FC has received numerous awards for its community, charity, and junior football activities, and currently delivers organised football and coaching for more than 1,000 children each week.

Additionally, the Community Sports Hall at the J. Davidson Stadium provides in excess of £90k turnover back into the football club per annum through bar/food sales alone.

To help with progression, the Board have appointed The Sport Business to provide on-going support.
