Last Minute Winner, Last Minute Vote!

We are now 2 hours away from the closing of voting for those who will not be at the Catrin Finch Centre, Glyndwr University, Off Crispin Lane, Mold Road, Wrexham on Tuesday 29th March 2016 starting at 7:30pm.

IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU USE YOUR VOTE! We need to be certain that taking on the lease and associated actions is supported by the Membership. 

Can all Members please make certain they cast their votes in what is, after actually taking control of Wrexham AFC, the most important decision in the Clubs future under the Wrexham Supports Trust ownership,entering into a 99-year lease with Glyndwr University for the Racecourse Ground -the home of Wrexham Football Club since 1864.

This is a hugely significant decision and a landmark in the proud history of our Club. After much consideration and lengthy negotiations, the Trust Board recommend that members ratify their proposal to enter into the lease with the University. Whilst we do not underestimate the challenges ahead, the Board are unanimous in the view that this represents the best and most sustainable opportunity to secure the Club’s tenure at our historic stadium for the long term.

There are documents which provide the details and background to the resolution:

a. “The Racecourse” –this document provides the background to the Board’s recommendation and introduces other documents.

b. Valuation Advice letter from GVA Billfinger -specialists in the valuation of football stadia. (Gavin Brent letter)

c. The Racecourse Ground Heads of Terms legal agreement

d. Commercial Heads of Terms legal agreement.

e. The full document of the GVA Bilfinger Valuation

These documents are available HERE

There is also a FAQ page  containing questions that have been asked across social media, via email, and in person to be found HERE
