fran gavin has already dusted off his, it's not our fault, the clubs were six millions euro's in debt when we took over the league speech just in case. hope it works out for Galway. the league needs big investment, it just needs to the right sort.

Someone slip sheikh Mohammed whatever his name is Pat O'Sullivans phone number. Galway already have a trust going who run the club, they'll probably always be upper first Divison being fan owend. So let the Saudis do whatever with the possibility of success and keep the trust going in the background for when they'll need to step back in.

Galway United Friends Co-operative SGM
Press Release on SGM
 
The Following Press Statement will be released today. Please note that a more detailed infromation pack will be sent only to members in advance of the meeting (24-48 hours before). For lapsed members that wish to renew their membership online please go to the co-op website (gufc-coop.com). If any member would like to submit any questions in advance please do so to info@gufc-coop.com. This will assist us in the preparation of the members information pack.
 
Press Statement 13/06/2018
Further to recent media reports the board of Galway United FC can confirm an offer has been received to take a majority shareholding in the club.
 
Galway United FC is 100% owned by the Galway United Friends Co-operative, and at the Special General Meeting (SGM) that has been called to discuss this offer, each co-op member that can attend will vote and ultimately make the decision in relation to the proposed investment. Galway United Friends Co-operative is owned and democratically controlled by its members and is operated on the principle of “one Member – one Vote”.
 
The co-op would encourage all paid up members to attend the SGM and have their voice heard by voting on the proposal on the night.
This is a proposed long term investment in Galway United and initial commitments outlined include;
 
Investment in the first team to target promotion to the Premier Division
  1. Investment in the development of the club’s underage infrastructure and youth academy
  2. Investment in a Galway United training facility
  3. Recruitment of key personnel to ensure right structures are in place both on and off the pitch to support the long-term development of the club. These individuals will be at board level, general management and a director of football.
  4. To play a bigger role in the community
Admission to the SGM will be only available to the following members. Members who have paid their full yearly membership (€180 for adults or €90 for concession class) or be part of the monthly payment scheme for at least two months. Members shall be at least 16 years of age, to be admitted to Society meetings. Lapsed members who pay their full yearly membership (€180 or €90) up to 48 hours before the meeting will also be entitled to attend. Lapsed members can make payment via the coop website at www.gufc-coop.com/gufc-sgm-2018/
 
We recognise that members will need sufficient time to consider this proposal and to this end a meeting information pack will be forwarded to members in advance of the SGM
One City,One County,One Club GUFC will be back.

Wasn't the very reason the trust talking to these guys the fact that they could not get enough support to continue and grow the club.

If the Galway public supported the club in enough numbers the trust would not have needed to look at other options.


I know nothing :-)

Embarresimg how? The vote was only to vote on whether or not the trust should talk with the Saudis about potential investment, not a yes or no on whether they should sell up. The trust had nothing to lose by talking with them and its probably better now for a deal to fall through rather than after someone takes majority control of the club which would have been embarrassing.

Because people within the club sought publicity over the takeover and told RTE etc.
