Lewes Community Football Club — You shape history

You shape history

Why Lewes FC?

Lewes FC is a football club with a big vision: To use the power of football to create social change. When we became the first club in the world to treat its women’s and men’s teams equally, that was history. But with your help, we can build a bigger, global platform to bring about change faster, to do stuff that no other club will. Because football is so BIG that when you bring about change in how it works, the world takes notice and change beyond football is catalysed. Are you a fan of change too? Join the club.

Gabrielle Salomon

I am a Lewes FC owner because... I believe the future of football should be about gender equity and that doesn't just come from fans, it comes from ownership structures (no matter the type) and Lewes FC's is committed to these activities.

I am a Lewes FC Owner because as an American, at first it was the novelty of owning a piece of an English Football club, but I've fontinued my ownership because I believe in your goals of equality.

I became an owner because I strongly believe in community owned women and men's football clubs. I have retained my ownership and spoken about it to many because of the commitment to equal pay for the women and men's teams. I live in Canada and first head about the possibility of ownership from my friend David Wolff. Wishing you all the best.

TEA: Transparency, Elections & Apps

We’re English, we love tea. Transparency – our annual accounts are published on our website, going back years. Elections – Directors serve 3yr terms so every year, three places on the Board come up for open election. As an Owner, you can stand for election and of course you get to vote. Apps – the new Owner App features a really neat feedback and voting channel so the club can regularly benefit from the global Owner brain. [Launching early October].

Owner savings, benefits and discounts

So, the Owner app we mentioned also offers discounts, often pretty big ones, with various online retailers. Great for Owners anywhere in the world. And for Owners closer to home (Lewes) we’ve got even more savings in local shops to help boost local business. The community you’re joining is global and local. Watch out for exclusive offers too.

Any questions?

If you have any questions about the Lewes Owners scheme, get in touch with us via owners@lewesfc.com.

How many shares can I buy?

One.

Our system is ‘one owner, one share, one vote.’ This is to protect the club from being bought by one unscrupulous owner. But you can buy a share for a friend or a family member

Do I have any liability issues as a share holder? (No)

Lewes Community Football Club Limited is registered as a Community Benefit Society which means that (like a company) (1) it is a legal entity in its own right, independent of the owners and (2) the liability of owners is limited to the value of their nominal £1 shareholding (which will be taken at the time of joining out of the Ownership payment).

“Any claim arising from the activities of the Society will therefore be a claim against the Society not the owners. If the Society were to become insolvent, the owners would lose their £1 stakes but could not be called upon to contribute further.”

In short, buying the share doesn’t lay you open to any responsibility or liability.
