Cambridge City Supporters Trust have played a central role in the life of Cambridge City FC in the years since 2006. Formed out of a supporters action group angered at the proposed termination of City as an independent entity, the Trust became the vehicle by which new supporter-directors took over the running of the club in conjunction with our club Chairman.
As the ship was steadied, and life at Milton Road returned to something like normal, the Trust has continued to be an important institution by investing money raised from supporters into the club in exchange for shares. The money invested has been used for a variety of purposes, including preparation for a ground share. The shares in the club are held by the Trust on behalf of its members and, by extension, all Cambridge City supporters.
We believe that a large, sustainable shareholding by the Trust helps ensure a stable and well-run football club.
Giving the fans' a voice
The Trust now has a single representative on the club board. Elected by the Trust membership every three years, this post helps aid communication between the club and the Trust.
The Trust is the voice of the ordinary fan and a champion for the local community. We are only as strong as our membership and our volunteer base and we are keen to expand both!
£10 for adults
£5 for U16s, students and senior citizens

Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you feel able to offer time as a volunteer as well. We are particularly looking for people with the ideas time and energy to be effective fundraisers, administrators or trust directors. Elections for Trust Directors take place each year, with the successful candidates serving for a two-year term.
By mobilising the supporters of Cambridge City FC we hope to be a force for a stronger, sustainable club as well as a focus for social and community activities.
