City Chairman Assem Allam has caused further disgruntlement amongst City supporters by releasing a club statement in the last hours.
Following on from his recent revelations that he will press ahead with a name change to Hull City Tigers in the New Year without undertaking any fan consultation, Assem Allam has now stated that he will refund the costs of season tickets to any supporters who wishes to claim a refund.
Supporters ground and campaigners City Till We Die have since urged supporters now to take up the offer made by Assem Allam and to continue to support the club and players, especially ahead of a crucial clash with Crystal Palace at the KC Stadium this Saturday.
The statement reads that supporters have until Friday 22 November (5pm) to claim a pro-rata refund on their season ticket with a similar opportunity operating between Monday 25 November (9am) and Friday 29 November (5pm.)
The club statement, which is published on the official website, goes on to state;
Dr. Assem Allam has made this offer in light of the confusion that followed the recent meeting with representatives of supporters` groups, and the fragmented messages that have emanated since that meeting. That meeting closed with one of the representatives requesting the opportunity to develop alternative commercial models, and nothing has yet been presented to the Club.
Dr. Allam feels a sense of duty to the majority of fans and stakeholders to secure the future stability of the Club, whilst continuously improving the quality of football, and as such is advancing his plans to generate the commercial opportunities necessary to forge a sustainable future. He is also keen that the majority of fans are able to focus on enjoying the quality of Premier League football at the KC Stadium, without being diverted onto minority interests."
