STATEMENT/PRESS RELEASE FROM THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE HULL CITY OFFICIAL SUPPORTERS CLUB (HCOSC
STATEMENT/PRESS RELEASE FROM THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE HULL CITY OFFICIAL SUPPORTERS CLUB (HCOSC)
The HCOSC Board of Directors have now sent the Football Association (FA) its detailed submission on the Club’s request to change its playing name to Hull Tigers. This follows a poll of all of its members which produced an impressive 63% response. The headline result was 59.5% against & 40.5% in favour of the playing name change from Hull City AFC to Hull Tigers. To all those who took part, a very big thank you. The vote results have been circulated and should have been seen by all interested parties. The result of this vote will be part of our submission to the FA. Once again, the Board of Directors of the HCOSC have been heavily criticised by some people on social media sites for its continued stance on impartiality. We reiterate that we must respect and represent all our members different views whether they vote yes, no or have not taken part in the poll.
The submission also explains the role of the HCOSC, the recent history at the Club, it’s relationship with the City Council as owners of the KC Stadium and details of a previous vote held in August/September last year. The submission also pays tribute to the Allam family for financing the Club which has helped enable a return to Premier League football in Hull. The HCOSC Directors believe the submission to be detailed and even-handed.
Three HCOSC Directors have been invited by the FA to a meeting at Wembley Stadium today (Monday 3rd February 2014) to consider the application from Hull City to change its playing name to Hull Tigers from the start of the 2014/15 season.

The HCOSC apologises for any disappointment & inconvenience this may cause to members. (Richard Beachell – OSC Events)
