Hull City Supporters' Trust is calling on Hull City supporters not to buy a ticket for the FA Cup game against Swansea in January and instead make a donation (perhaps the amount that a ticket would have cost) to charity instead.
The aim of this is to expose the mismanagement of Hull City AFC by the Allam family to a wider national audience by having City play this fixture in an almost empty ground, and of course to raise some money for a great local cause.
Launch Pad, also known as Hull High Fliers Trampoline Club, are one of the local sports clubs which were forcefully evicted from the community-owned Airco Arena by the Allams. They have subsequently had serious problems finding a new home which can accommodate their trampolines and face crippling storage costs until they can find a proper home. They recently received a further blow after having a lease arranged for a new permanent home which was reneged on at the last minute costing them £1,000. We hope that City supporters can help them to secure a new home.
Hulls Premier Trampoline Club. Established in 1981, Hull High Fliers is one of the most successful clubs in Yorkshire, having had trampoline and double mini trampoline success at grassroots to Regional, National and International level. We are proud to have Yorkshire, England and Great Britain representatives amongst our members.Our centre of excellence was based at the sports Arena until the facility was taken over by Hull City for its Academy and all of the clubs had four weeks notice to find alternative premises.
