Kilmarnock Fans Form Group Under Supporters Direct Scotland

Thu 24th Oct 2013 | Clubs Ownership

Kilmarnock fans and community representatives have agreed to form a working group under the auspices of Supporters Direct Scotland, with the aim of exploring community ownership options.

The group will follow the structure and approach undertaken by SDS at several clubs across Scotland in recent months.

Paul Goodwin, Head of Supporters Direct Scotland (SDS) said: “The structure of the Kilmarnock fans’ group will mirror those adopted by Pars United and The Foundation of Hearts. 

“Representatives of the various supporters groups will join with representatives from the local community and business world to push their mutual desire to see their club become fan and community owned. 

“In the short term SDS will chair the group with the intention of passing that role to a chairperson agreed by the group at a later date.

“The structure will see up to two representatives from each individual group, all working towards an agreed target. 

“What we know is that the combined power of all groups with a shared interest can make significant progress towards fans and the community ownership. 

“The aim will be to put the Kilmarnock fans in the strongest possible position to respond quickly to the opportunity to buy their club if, and when, it comes around.”

The group will be made up, in no particular order, of:


  • The Killie Trust
  • The Kilmarnock FC Supporters Association
  • Minority shareholders in Kilmarnock FC
  • The Business Club
  • The Kilmarnock Futures Consortium
  • Young Kilmarnock
  • Disabled Supporters Group


The first meeting of the group will take place on the 1st of November 2013.
