FC United new home is to be in Moston, the M.E.N. can reveal.

Officials from the club - formed in 2005 in protest at the Glazer family's ownership of Manchester United - have been locked in talks with council bosses since their plans for a 5,000-capacity stadium in Ten Acres Lane, Newton Heath, collapsed last month.

The Ronald Johnson Playing Fields, close to Lightbowne Road, have now been identified as the new site. It too will have a 5,000 capacity, including up to 600 seats.

FC bosses will put a planning application before Manchester council this summer with a view to kicking off the 2012/13 season in Moston.

If all goes according to plan, work could commence before the end of the year.

FC general manager Andy Walsh said the planned stadium would be very similar to that earmarked for Ten Acres Lane.

He described it as a very positive day for the club but warned there was a long way to go.

Residents in the area will be consulted and a feasibility study carried out before the club, which is run on a co-operative basis, can progress.

Mr Walsh paid tribute to the work of council officers. He said: “They have done what they told us they were going to do.”

It will have a club house and an additonal a full-size artificial pitch. There are no plans at this stage for a sports centre but that may change.

Moston Juniors currently play from the site and they would be accommodated in the scheme,..

The plug was pulled on Ten Acres Lane when town hall bosses withdrew £600,000 of funding after carrying out a spending review in the light of government cuts.

Mike Amesbury, from the council, said: "These are exciting plans which will mean further welcome investment in north Manchester.”

Broughton Park, close to Hough End playing fields, and Wythenshawe Park were looked at but neither were considered viable. FC United currently play their matches in the seventh tier of English football at Bury's Gigg Lane. They regularly attract crowds of more than 2,000.

The club has raised £1.3m through a share scheme and £400,000 in donations towards the project. They will offer payment plans to residents close to the ground who wish to buy shares.

Great news for FC getting their own ground... but a share issue?

What's to stop Glazer buying you out just to make you go away? :rolleyes:

He has no money?

Serious answer: The club members aren't shareholders, it's solely a scheme to raise enough money for the stadium... not the owning of the club.

Haha. :p

So the shares are just for ground ownership then? That's a much safer plan. Was impressed with £400,000 in donations too. I hope there's no danger of FC turning into what they originally protested against... How much are the tickets these days, have they increased much?

U18 - £2. Adults - £8 (£1 increase since 2005).

Not sure about kid season tickets but adults are a minimum of £90 and people can choose what they pay, so basically £90 + donation

FC United signs agreement enshrining community use of proposed new football ground and sports facility

Supporter-owned football club FC United of Manchester’s plans to build a new football ground and community sports facility in Moston, north Manchester moved a step closer today, after the club and Manchester City Council announced that planning permission for the site is now active and that work is scheduled to start by the autumn. This follows the signing of agreements which enshrine community use of the proposed new facility which will house the club’s new home.

The agreements underpin FC United’s existing commitments to deliver genuine community benefit at the proposed site in Moston, including working with Moston Juniors Football Club to help them realise their ambitions for young people in the area. These commitments will also be enshrined in the club’s Community Share Scheme and grant agreements. "Our groundbreaking development will create a positive and lasting legacy in Moston, creating new high quality sports and non-sports facilities for the area for generations to come. In signing this agreement we are demonstrating a further statement of intent to the council and the local community," said FC United of Manchester general manager Andy Walsh.

Commenting on the signing of the agreement, Councillor Rosa Battle, Executive Member for Culture and Leisure for Manchester City Council, said: "This scheme will spell significant social and economic benefits for Moston and North Manchester as a whole. The partnership between FC United and Moston Juniors FC, one of the largest junior football clubs in Manchester, will not only result in around £4.6 million of new investment in the area. It will also create the basis for an excellent sporting hub in North Manchester - with three pitches and a clubhouse which will all be used by the community as well as the clubs.

"On top of this, FC United will work with Moston Juniors FC and a range of other partner agencies to help increase the number of people taking part in sport in the area - helping to tackle health and other social issues. It’s exciting that the new ground and other facilities will soon start to take shape," said Battle.

FC United’s Moston project had already been granted planning permission subject to the signing of a section 106 agreement. This agreement has now been signed, meaning that the planning permission is active and work is expected to start by the autumn, with the club aiming to move into their new home by the start of the 2013/14 football season.

In March, FC United announced that it had raised over £1.6m from a unique community share scheme to help fund the new facility. This continues to raise investment and in total the club will be bringing over £2m in cash to the project which is helping the club to unlock the further grant funding it needs to meet the costs of the £4.6m project.

........ completed by August

In what has been described as a 'momentous day' in the non-league club's history a lease has been signed with Manchester council for the site on the Ronald Johnson Playing Fields in Moston.

FC United's new 5,000-capacity stadium should be finished in August – with building work due to start next month.

In what has been described as a 'momentous day' in the non-league club's history a lease has been signed with Manchester council for the site on the Ronald Johnson Playing Fields in Moston.

The development brings an end to a long-running and often controversial saga.

Supporter-owned FC, formed in 2005 in protest at the Glazer family's ownership of Manchester United , fought a lengthy legal battle with a section of residents opposed to the stadium – which is expected to cost around £5.5m to build.

They have played at a variety of venues and are now finally set to break earth on a permanent home in the city.

Image

Delighted general manager Andy Walsh said: “This is a momentous day for FC United of Manchester and also for the local community who will benefit from this facility.

“This is a brilliant achievement and one of which everyone connected with the club should be very proud.”

Moston Juniors, who had previously held the lease at the site, will be accommodated at the new complex which will feature three pitches and a clubhouse.

FC, who play in the seventh-tier of English football, say the stadium will allow them to develop their vision of community driven football that will entertain, develop sports participation and both engage and provide facilities for local residents and community groups.

Walsh added: “The development is not about just football - residents of north Manchester will gain access to excellent community facilities offering a choice of activities including a range of other sports.

"We are excited about the commencement of work on the project and are celebrating today, but a bigger celebration will be when we complete the construction of the ground and the community facilities which will have such a positive effect on the local community and beyond.”

Image

The club had originally planned to build the stadium on Ten Acres Lane but a late switch in council funding scuppered the proposals.

They also had to endure a bitter legal battle with a group of residents opposed to the plans that ended when a Judicial Review found that the council had followed proper procedure when granting planning permission.

More than £2m of the money has come from a pioneering share scheme. Other partners include Sport England, the Football Foundation, Manchester council and the Manchester College.

Councillor Rosa Battle said: "This scheme will spell significant social and economic benefits for Moston and North Manchester as a whole,” while Jack Carney, Principal at The Manchester College, added: “The new football ground and sport facility will be a fantastic provision for the local community, giving residents access to a wide range of sporting and community facilities on their doorstep.”

Paul Mitchell, chairman of Moston Juniors Football Club, added: “I am proud that these facilities that are being built in Moston will put the area onto the UK sporting map as a beacon of excellence and community strength.”

That is huge investment and I hope it all works out for them. They didn't like the way they were being treated by a football club and did something about it something a lot of fans could learn from.

I keep toying with the idea of going up to a game just to see what it's all about.

I know it's not really the primary goal but it would be amazing if they made it into the football league someday.

I don't see why not? Everyone is welcome, and there's certainly no harm in trying.

You wouldn't be the first person that went and never bothered again, if that was the case. But would be nice to try.

I went and had a great time, the atmosphere second to none. They're all Reds anyway so you'll be among friends, just don't go praising the Glazers too much. :snigger:

Not sure if that would bugger their aim to keep prices down if they had to compete at too high a level but I can see lower league football working well for them.

It's good to see the ground finally being broken on this project. How long until it's completed?

Football Club United of Manchester (FC United of Manchester, FC United, FCUoM or FCUM for short) is a semi-professional English football club based in Bury. The club was formed in 2005 by Manchester United supporters following Malcolm Glazer's controversial takeover which led to thousands of supporters defecting from the club. They are affectionately referred to as "The Red Rebels".

Although the majority of the club's support comes from Manchester and the surrounding area, its supporters club has branches in more than ten countries including France, Poland, New Zealand, the United States and Canada. The local cable television station Channel M began a monthly series of programmes about the club in January 2006. Television crews from France, Israel and the Netherlands have been seen at the team's matches.

FC United's first three seasons were successful, winning promotion each time. FC United entered at the tenth level of the English football league system (the second division of the North West Counties Football League) and they were confirmed as champions on 15 April 2006 and followed that up by being crowned as champions of Division 1 on 18 April 2007. The 2007-08 season saw them finish second in the Northern Premier League Division One North then gain promotion through the end of season play-offs.

During their first season (2005-06), they had a higher average attendance than seven league clubs, including Bury with whom FC United share a ground. It was also the second-highest average attendance in English non-League football. Although attendances have fallen in subsequent seasons, they were still the 100th best supported club in 2007-08.[2]. Their record attendance is 6,023 for a match against Great Harwood Town on 22 April 2006.

The team is managed by the former Macclesfield Town player Karl Marginson.


History

Formation
The club was founded in the summer of 2005 by disgruntled supporters of Manchester United. Although those supporters had various reasons for their dissatisfaction with the club, the prime catalyst for FC United's formation was the hostile takeover of Manchester United by the United States businessman Malcolm Glazer. United supporters had previously considered forming a new club in response to a proposed takeover by Rupert Murdoch in 1998, but the takeover bid was unsuccessful so the idea was not implemented. When it was announced that Glazer was considering taking over the club, the idea was brought up again as a possible "last resort" and discussed in Manchester United fanzines including Red Issue.

The Glazer family obtained overall control of Manchester United on 12 May 2005, and supporters who had opposed the takeover organized a meeting at the Manchester Methodist Hall on 19 May. Although the focus of the meeting was on continuing to oppose Manchester United's new owners rather than forming a new club, the meeting's chairman, Andy Walsh, announced that the formation of a new club would be discussed at a second meeting on 30 May and that Kris Stewart, the then chairman of AFC Wimbledon, had given much advice on setting up the club. It was decided that the club would be formed if 1,000 people pledged financial support by the end of July. This target was exceeded and the steering committee pushed ahead with plans for the club.

A nearby club, Leigh RMI, were in financial difficulties at the time and asked FC United to take them over, as the extra support from FC United would have ensured their club's survival. The founders of FC United refused this proposition because they were creating the club in response to an unpopular takeover and didn't feel that taking over another existing club was appropriate. The clubs remained on good terms, though, and FC United's first public match was a friendly against Leigh RMI.

The club's founders originally chose the name FC United, but the Football Association rejected this as too generic. Those who had pledged money to the club were then asked to vote on a name from FC United of Manchester, FC Manchester Central, AFC Manchester 1878 and Newton Heath United FC. On 14 June 2005 it was announced that FC United of Manchester had been chosen with 44% of the vote. FC United continues to be used as an abbreviated form of the club's name.

Karl Marginson was appointed as manager on 22 June, and the club held trials for players on 26 June. 900 players applied to take part in the trials, of whom 200 were selected to do so and 17 were chosen to play for FC United, although most of those have since left the club.

Organisation
FC United is an Industrial and Provident Society. Membership is obtained by paying an annual fee of £10 to the club (£3 for children), but each member receives only one share in the club and is entitled to a single vote at meetings, regardless of the amount donated.

The club has an elected board of twelve members, but has not yet chosen a chairman. Tony Pritchard is acting as chairman until a decision is made.

The club has two full-time employee positions: Andy Walsh as chief executive and Lindsey Robertson. Andy Walsh was heavily involved in the club's formation.

The club's manifesto includes the following core principles:

1. The Board will be democratically elected by its members.
2. Decisions taken by the membership will be decided on a one member, one vote basis.
3. The club will develop strong links with the local community and strive to be accessible to all, discriminating against none.
4. The club will endeavour to make admission prices as affordable as possible, to as wide a constituency as possible.
5. The club will encourage young, local participation - playing and supporting - whenever possible.
6. The Board will strive wherever possible to avoid outright commercialism.
7. The club will remain a non-profit organisation.

The club accepts sponsorship but does not allow sponsors' logos to be displayed on the team's shirts. The club's main sponsor in its inaugural 2005-06 season was the Bhopal Medical Appeal and in season 2006-07 it was the Williams BMW Group.


Future aspirations


In November 2006 at the club's Annual General Meeting, the club outlined bold aspirations for the forthcoming six years[15] including:

• Winning promotion in three successive seasons to take them to Conference North by 2009. (This goal was completed, however due to league restructuring F.C. United have to be promoted one more time to reach Conference North.)
• Reaching an average of 5,000 supporters per home game by 2009.
• Building their own 7,000 - 10,000 capacity stadium, as central to Greater Manchester as possible, by 2012.
• Developing their own training facilities by 2009.
• Starting a women's team for the 2007-08 season. (This has not happened yet).

Results
Winning promotion in three successive seasons was accomplished on 3 May 2008, and they currently compete in the Northern Premier League this season. One further promotion will put the team in Conference North by 2009-10, exactly as planned in November 2006.

It's good to see the ground finally being broken on this project. How long until it's completed?


I believe it should be usable for football in time for next season, not sure what exactly will be in place but probably the main stand with player entrance/bars etc.. and a terrace behind one of the goals will be up.

The whole actual complex will be an extra year or two.
