M.U.S.T leads the way as the first supporters trust to make the pledge to Common Goal

Today M.U.S.T, the Manchester United Supporters Trust, became the first supporters trust in the world to sign up and make the pledge to Common Goal.
 
Our pledge means we will be donating 1% of our membership fees to the Common Goal movement but perhaps more importantly we will be helping to promote Common Goal to our members, the wider global Manchester United supporter base, and through our sister trusts and other fan organisations.
 
A M.U.S.T spokesperson welcomed the new partnership:
"It is written into the constitution of M.U.S.T that we contribute to local community and good causes and so it felt such a good fit to support Common Goal given the leadership of United's Juan Mata, Siobhan Chamberlain, and Casey Stoney. It is a privilege to support these players and manager both for their on the pitch play but also for their roles in bringing positive change to the community. This complements our work running a matchday collection for local Foodbanks so we support both local community, and through Common Goal, a community which extends globally.”
 
"It is early days in this new partnership but we hope it will flourish and enthuse our members and Manchester United fans globally to sign up too and support this fantastic cause so we can collectively use football as a platform for social change"
 
A few MUST members sat down with Juan Mata and Siobhan Chamberlain at the Carrington Training Complex to mark the new partnership and the video can be viewed here: https://bit.ly/MUST-CG2
