For the benefit of the Community: The Well Society will ensure that we continue to work closely with the Motherwell Community Trust who play a positive role in the lives of over 37,000 people. The Well Society will also ensure that we maintain ethical standards and ensure the club remains a family friendly, community centred football club that the fans, players and staff can be proud to be part of.
Have a say in the way your club is run: Fan ownership gives all Society members the opportunity to not only vote for who they want to represent them on the Well Society Board, but members are also able to stand for election themselves. There are also a number of ways for members to put forward their opinions, ideas, concerns, questions, and criticisms, ensuring the Society Board is representing member views as best it can on a variety of issues, from kick-off times and ticket prices to stadium improvements and club investment.
Protect the financial future of the club: Fan ownership means that the club will always be in the hands of those who care about it most – the supporters. This club exists for the good of the community, not for the profit or benefit of any individual or consortium. The Well Society ensures the threat of our club ever falling into the wrong hands is eradicated.
Invest in youth: One of the Well Society’s main aims is to continually support and assist our Youth Academy. By hiring experienced coaches and encouraging the development of local players we want to see Motherwell Football Club producing the next crop of young talent rather than buying from elsewhere.
Lead the way for change in Scottish Football: The Steelmen now have the historic honour of being the first top flight club in Scotland to be fan owned. This can, in turn, help pave the way for more clubs to do the same, leading to fans nationwide having a bigger say in the way Scottish football operates. This is our game and we can make it better.
Be part of the club’s history: By backing the Well Society you will be playing your part in one of the most significant chapters in the history of Motherwell FC, not only protecting our club from financial crisis but helping to support the club’s successful journey forward as a fan owned club.
Now that fan ownership is reality, the opportunity exists for all Motherwell fans to play a significant part in the continual success of our club – not just financially, but in terms of development both on and off the park.
