Would your football club be better run as a co-operative? What's the point of a football club?

Would your football club be better run as a co-operative?

If we look at the motives of its owners, we'd get some strange answers. It could be a millionaire's pension fund, a property development opportunity, a shot at a capital gain, a millstone, a tax dodge, an ego-trip, a nest-egg, a birthday present, a promotional tool, a political tool; the list is far from exhaustive.

No club was ever founded with this in mind, of course. They began life as genuine clubs, open to membership from the community of players, and later supporters, who had an interest in their success. But over time – mainly for the need to raise capital to build stadia – clubs became companies, and lots of members gave way to a smaller number of shareholders. This seems at odds with the true nature of the enterprise, which has an inherently public character. That's why a co-operative form is a perfect fit with football, because in a co-op economics flow from purpose, not the other way around.

Place to bring costs under control. Operative football: fan ownership back on the agenda. This summer has provided further evidence for a truth that has become unavoidable: football never sleeps. Even as Murraymania replaced the inertia that followed England's insipid exit from Euro 2012, our national game managed to shoehorn its way back into the national consciousness with the trial of the former England captain, the Rangers saga, and Sepp Blatter's cod philosophical musings on the need to avoid moral justice. Three different stories, but all of relevance to the supporters who gathered in London earlier this month for the Fans' Weekend, organised by the Football Supporters' Federation and Supporters Direct.

Over the course of the event, which included workshops on topics such as financial fair play, community shares and the supporter liaison officer project, delegates discussed and debated the best way forward for a movement that was born in 1992, when Northampton Town Supporters' Trust was formed with the express aim of preserving an ailing community asset.

The 52 minute movie is funded by The Co-operative Group - whose own origins trace back to the original ‘Rochdale Pioneers’ – to celebrate the United Nations International Year of Co-operatives, 2012. Made and produced by The Co-operative British Youth Film Academy, the film – whose working title is “The Rochdale Pioneers” - tells of 28 working men whose vision for a better social order inspired them to form the Rochdale Equitable Pioneers Society in 1844 - recognised as the birth of the co-operative movement. After a year’s trading (1845) membership had increased almost three-fold and the Pioneers’ fame soon spread overseas - today there are one billion members of co-operatives worldwide and, in the UK alone sector turnover exceeds £33 Billion.

Vous n'aurez pas la COOP d'Alsace ?

Quelques mois plus tard, l’Association Régionale de Soutien aux Coop d’Alsace publie un communiqué “A LECLERC ET A CASINO : NON, VOUS N’AUREZ PAS LA COOP D’ALSACE ! Et la lorraine” La « Coopé » appartient depuis 1902 à ses sociétaires, et a accumulé ses dernières années des déficits importants, dans un secteur où ses concurrents gagnent de l’argent, et parfois beaucoup d’argent. comme le montre le logo, c’est dans l’alliance avec desfirmes privées, que certains considèrent comme une braderie du patrimoine et un abandon des valeurs que l’issue à ces difficultés a été recherchée Les responsables actuels semblent considérer qu’il n’est pas d’issue dans le système coopératif et recherchent auprès de Leclerc ou Casion l’issue.
