Who are we?
The Newcastle United Supporters Trust (NUST) are an independent, not-for-profit membership organisation run by fans for fans. We seek to benefit our football club and its supporters by channelling the passion of its loyal supporters into a forward-thinking organisation that is a legally constituted, democratic, not-for-profit Supporters Trust.
The Trust will act responsibly as a guardian of the future of Newcastle United. The Trust will work with fans across the UK and the rest of the world, the Club and other organisations such as the Football Supporters’ Association. The Trust will also look to work with and benefit the local community and seeks to strengthen the ties between the Club and it’s local area.
The Trust is run by an elected board of fans. Elections are held every year and voted in by its members. Every member over the age of 16 is eligible to stand for election and to vote for candidates for the NUST board which will be accountable to all NUST members. All board members are volunteers, which means they are not paid for their work, and give up their own time. The Trust is legally registered and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Any money raised or shares bought will belong to all members equally. The trust produces independently audited annual accounts and provides regular updates to members through meetings, emails and this website.
The Trust’s primary focus is and always will be surrounding Newcastle United. Sometimes these issues are similar to those faced by fans of other clubs, as a league and at a national level. The Trust will work alongside other Trusts to ensure Newcastle United are fairly represented on a national and international level.
Our main areas of work have been around ticket pricing, fan safety, fixture scheduling, St James’ Park and the NUFC Fans Foodbank.
We have an active dialogue with NUFC. To continue this, and to build on our achievements so far, we need the backing of as many Newcastle United fans as possible. Join us today! Strength in numbers!
We now have over 8,000 members in 35 countries.
