Rangers Football Club should be significantly owned and influenced by the people who genuinely love the club: Rangers fans. With this objective in mind, Follow Rangers Shareholders Limited has been established as an easy way for Rangers fans to buy shares in their club. The aim is to facilitate widespread, global fan ownership, firstly to secure the long term security of Rangers Football Club and secondly to give fans a collective voice in the direction taken by the club; now and in the years ahead.
Follow Rangers Shareholders Limited will be wholly independent; not only of Rangers Football Club but of all other supporters groups. This will remain the case both now and in the future. However, it will happily work in conjunction with any groups or individuals who are prepared to stand up for the best interests of Rangers Football Club and Rangers fans.
On behalf of our participants, we will hold to account anyone believed to be acting contrary to the best interests of Rangers Football Club, the Rangers support or Follow Rangers Shareholders Limited.
Through share ownership, our participants can become significant stakeholders in Rangers Football Club. This will give supporters a genuine say in the club’s future, secure in the knowledge that fans own the shares.
Follow Rangers Supporters Limited will require new participants to pay a one off joining fee. In addition, members will be asked to donate a minimum monthly payment to the share buying fund, along with an annual membership fee payable every year. While a condition of membership is that the proxy for any existing shares is signed to Follow Rangers Shareholders Limited, ownership of the existing shares will remain with the members. When new shares are purchased, they will be held by the Company and a database will be maintained reflecting the individual member’s contribution. Along with existing shares, voting rights for these shares will be given to Follow Rangers Shareholders Limited.
Members will be encouraged and expected to vote on ALL ballots. There will be two choices: YES or NO. In the event of an abstention, missing votes will be cast according to the same ratio as votes cast by participant voters. Results of all votes will be released to members in numerical as well as % format to give our members full disclosure.
New members must be proposed and seconded by two existing members. All applications will go before a recruitment committee. The decision of the committee is final and, in the case of a refusal, there will be no appeal.
Website will be www.followrangers.com
