A Statement From Dundee United
The Dundee United board have this afternoon released the following statement
07 July 2012
Dundee United would like to acknowledge with sincere thanks the considerable backing the Club has received from supporters, sponsors and other loyal customers during the recent period of unprecedented turmoil in Scottish football.
Following this week’s vote against Rangers newco being admitted into the SPL, it is the Board’s belief that the SFA and the SFL should now be left to decide where the Rangers newco should play next season. It is important that these bodies are allowed to make this decision without any pressure from the SPL or its member clubs. Dundee United will respect their decision and look forward to now concentrating on our own football ambitions for the season ahead.
Chairman Stephen Thompson said “The relationship between the United fans and the Club has always been extremely close but this recent situation has helped us to develop an even stronger bond and, with over 4,000 season ticket sales to date, the signs of belief and support amongst our fans are hugely encouraging and very welcome”.
“This coming season will undoubtedly be financially challenging but we all want to continue making progress both on and off the field. Thank you for your wonderful support, particularly during the last few weeks, and please continue to play your part by backing the Club in every way you can.”
Got to say, hugely positive stuff coming out of the club there and the fans deserve a lot of credit for sticking to their word and backing the club in the aftermath of Stephen Thompson and the boards statement on the Rangers Newco situation.
Over 4000 season tickets sold is fantastic and with a few weeks to go until the start of the season, hopefully there is still room for that number to creep up.
