Snapshot Results - Season Ticket Holder Matchday Protest & Ownership Survey


Thank you for participating in our short survey on matchday protest & ownership. We've included the snapshot results below. We've now modified the survey to exclude the question regarding the Wolves game walkout which has now passed but we really would like to get a lot more responses from Season Ticket holders to make it more representative. Therefore please share this link with any Season Ticket holders you know:

SNAPSHOT SURVEY RESULTS THUS FAR 
As explained above we need to get a wider sample to get results which better represent the views of Season Ticket holders but there are some clear conclusions to draw.
  • First by far the most popular form of matchday protest is vocal and/or visual (Green & Gold) - these received support of three quarters of respondents.
  • All other forms of matchday protest were far less popular with walkout early being the least unpopular.
  • However given the responses to the question about a 68th minute walkout at the Wolves match it appears that even the low level of support (~22%)  for this was an overestimate of the actual proportion based on the small number observed to have done so. 
  • Encouragingly a huge majority - well over 90% - acknowledged that protest alone could not deliver the change in ownership many desire and that they would be interested in participating in a future new ownership model.
  • Perhaps these results are biased towards MUST members so it is really important we reach Season Ticket Holders outside of our existing membership







 

PLEASE SHARE THIS LINK WITH SEASON TICKET HOLDERS
We want to get a wider view from Season Ticket Holders as it clearly our initial survey was biased towards those supporting protest judging by the small number who particiapted in the 68th minute walkout versus those who indicated they would do so. Therefore please share this link with any Season Ticket holders you know:

Q8. ALTERNATIVE OWNERSHIP - Protest alone cannot change the ownership as there has to be a buyer for the Glazers to sell to and without a credible and better alternative ownership protest inevitably runs out of steam -  as we saw in 2005 and again in 2010. If the opportunity arose for a new model of ownership with major investors partnering with many, perhaps millions, of members of our global fanbase would you be interested in participating?
