Dr Sara Ward. Dr Tom Scanlon and Professor Tony Hines form the Football Research Cluster at MMUBS. Since 2009, they have analysed governance structures within supporter owned football clubs. Sara Ward’s research focused on six football clubs adopting varying supporter ownership models with differing fortunes.1 The sample encompassed clubs who had matured with the model (Hamburger SV), clubs who had adopted it out of financial necessity (Brentford FC, Stockport County FC & Exeter City FC) and newly formed clubs (Chester FC & FC United of Manchester) which have evolved using the model. Results from their research form the basis of this submission. 2
