No to Hull Tigers
What our Chairman says
On 12 September 2013, in an interview with The Guardian, Hull City AFC owner Dr Assem Allam said, “By next year I will change the name to Hull Tigers." He added, "I cannot afford to run the club by fans' feeling." In a Hull Daily Mail interview on 9 August 2013, he stated, “Hull City is irrelevant. My dislike to the word City is because it is common... City is a lousy identity.”
What we believe
Changing our name will break with 109 years of history and tradition. Hull City AFC is the thread which connects Boothferry Park, the KC Stadium and Wembley; that links Raich Carter, Chris Chilton and Ken Wagstaff to Ian Ashbee, Dean Windass and the team of today. It represents our community.
- To unite all Hull City supporters opposed to the name change.
- To let the football authorities, media and club’s management know about our opposition.
- To call for proper consultation with supporters on any change to the club’s identity.
- To vocally support the team.
