Press release from the board of directors of the hull city official supporters club (HCOSC)
PRESS RELEASE FROM THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE HULL CITY OFFICIAL SUPPORTERS CLUB (HCOSC)
The HCOSC and other key stakeholders have been asked by the Football Association (FA) to submit their opinion on Club’s request to change the playing name of the Football Club from Hull City AFC to Hull Tigers.
City Till We DIe (CTWD) approached us to see if we could agree a joint statement to the FA on the name change. Because of the differing views of our members, highlighted in a vote/poll last year, we decided that we could not agree to this request.
We are currently asking all our members to vote on this change of playing name. The result of this vote will be placed in the public domain and be part of our submission to the FA.
We must respect the views of all of our paying members and because of this we could not agree to a joint statement.
HCOSC Board of Directors
