By Councillor Corbett – Hearts Fan Ownership




Congratulates the Foundation of Hearts on becoming the majority shareholder of Heart of Midlothian PLC as of 30 August 2021, making Hearts the largest fan-owned club in the UK; recognises that Edinburgh’s major football clubs enjoy a vigorous rivalry but have a common interest in maintaining a long and proud history at the centre of the communities in which they were first formed; notes the previous “Fans First” campaign by Lothian MSP Alison Johnstone to provide football fans with greater say in the running and ownership of their clubs; and welcomes the Foundation of Hearts’ success as an important step in giving supporters that primary voice.”
