Lo Sky Blue Trust ha pubblicato i risultati del sondaggio(qui dettagli) condotto con la base del tifo nell'ambito del dibattito sul futuro della proprietà del Coventry City FC sollevato dall'associazione di tifosi in forte contrasto con il fondo d'investimento SISU, proprietario del club(Video1 e Video2), e che da tempo chiede un ricambio alla guida della società(qui dettagli).

Oltre a rilevare il generico malcontento della tifoseria del Coventry, con una quota esigua del 20% degli abbonati che si dichiara intenzionato al rinnovo, dalla rilevazione emerge che il 60% dei partecipanti è favorevole ad un necessario ricambio della proprietà e l'83% vedrebbe positivamente un coinvolgimento dei supporters con potenziali nuovi investitori proposto nei mesi scorsi dal collettivo(qui dettagli).


Fans Want Change of Owners and Ownership Model

The annual Sky Blue Trust survey was conducted during February and has yielded some interesting and potentially worrying results. It must be stressed that the survey was done before the return of Mark Robins and the welcome success at Wembley.

The survey was completed by 720 supporters, 50% being Trust members. Of the 720, over 50% were either season ticket holders or had attended more than 5 home matches. Therefore the survey shows a good spread of supporters from a range of demographic groups so that the results are statistically significant.

The most worrying outcome from the survey is the finding that, among current season ticket holders, only 20% would definitely renew if the club, as looks sadly inevitable, were relegated to Division 2.
This would mean a major cut in the club's income, a potential decrease of almost £1 million. With the current owners steadfastly refusing to invest in the team, it makes the prospect of signing quality players and bouncing straight back up again remote.

However, 60% did indicate that a change of ownership would lead to them definitely renewing, even if the club was in Division 2. The subject of ownership is one that is deep in the thoughts of most Sky Blue supporters, with 65% stating that they cared about who owned the club and 83% supporting an ownership model based around some form of supporter involvement.

To further back this supporter involvement in ownership model, 92% of respondants indicated that they would be willing to invest their own money into their club, with 36% stating they would be willing to invest £1000 or more. This shows that there is not only an appetite for this type of ownership change but that supporters could raise sufficient funds to make it a reality.
