Alliance Council often hears of fans looking to set up as a Supporter Group. Back in March 2017 we sat down with the four current Supporter Groups and created a process to recognise new Supporter Groups.

If you are interested in the detail – it’s all documented here as part of that discussion.

To be recognised as a new Supporter Group – there are several administrative steps required:

  • Identified group leadership which is responsible for coordination and can speak on behalf of the group
  • At least twenty-five (25) identified, paid members
  • Organized participation as a group in support activities
  • Established history of conducting supporter group activities in support of the Club
  • Have appropriate corporate entity registration with their local state (for example non-profit, 501(c)3 etc
  • Make a request for recognition as a Supporter Group to the Executive Committee or other Committee created by the Alliance Council assigned to this task.
  • Provide documentation to the Executive Committee showing that all the required standards set forth above have been met.
