Glazers comment on fan-ownership

In a historic fans forum last Friday, the Glazer family member discussed a variety of topics, including the idea of giving Red Devils fans more power in club decisions such as the European Super League.

Manchester United Executive Co-Chairman Joel Glazer has commented on potential fan ownership at Old Trafford after meeting with supporters over Zoom last week.

Last month, discontent reached a new high when United's home match against Liverpool was postponed as anti-Glazer demonstrators broke into Old Trafford, demanding more control over the club's management.

The Athletic reported on the over two-hour meeting, detailing what was discussed between 11 fan representatives and club officials.

Since last October, supporters have reportedly been in talks with the club - through the Manchester United Supporters Trust (MUST) - about acquiring fan shares and earning additional voting rights.

Old Trafford will shortly establish a Fan Advisory Board and a Fan Share Scheme, according to a statement:

“The club has been in discussions with MUST regarding a fan share scheme for a number of months and has already sought external legal advice on options. Discussions will now intensify, with the aim of agreeing to a plan before the start of the new season."
