Club 1872 members were recently invited to complete a skills audit questionnaire in order that suitable working groups could be created to assist with the running of the organisation. A Projects working group has now been formed to support the Club 1872 Board and deliver tangible results for current and prospective members.
By default, members’ monthly contributions are split with 47.5% of an allocation towards Club 1872 Projects, 47.5% towards share purchases and 5% to administration costs. Many members opt to alter this percentage allocation at their discretion, however, Club 1872 currently holds over £175,000 in the Projects fund and is keen to ensure that these monies are used for the benefit of members, Rangers FC and the Rangers community at large.
Members were previously invited to submit suggestions for Projects, and several responses were received which vary in size, complexity and the associated funding required. The Club 1872 Board is keen to ensure that realistic and achievable Projects are selected regularly by the membership and to this end, would now invite all members to submit further suggestions for potential Projects with a perceived cost of less than £50,000.
Project suggestions can be emailed toand entries will close on Friday 16th of June. Thereafter, all submissions will be reviewed and the three most practical and achievable options will be put to a members vote via the Club 1872 website. With voting expected to open toward the end of June and last for up to two weeks, the Board endeavours to ensure the first Project is ready to be actioned by the end of the quarter.
This is an exciting opportunity for all members to submit suggestions for Projects which they feel would enhance the match day experience, assist with member engagement and generally promote both Rangers FC and Club 1872.< Back
