Bob Servant announced as the first Foundation Ambassador

By News

After protracted negotiations that involved several bottles of Foundation 1909 Lager, we are ‘over the moon’ to be able to name the legendary Bob Servant as the first DUSF Ambassador. 

Mr Servant’s main role will be to “oil the wheels” behind the scenes as we strive to hit our end of April £ target.  Welcome aboard Bob.

DUSF unveil plaque to commemorate Club Founder

By News

The 6th Of April is the anniversary of the death of Pat Reilly. On that date, DUSF unveiled a plaque to commemorate our Club Founder.

When DUSF researched the life of Pat Reilly recently we thought it would be fitting if there was a permanent memorial to him.
So we approached Dundee City Council and received permission to erect a plaque on a bench close to his gravestone. We installed it on the anniversary of his death.

Arabs will now have somewhere to sit and ponder the meaning of life as they remember the Founder of our beloved football club. Without him, quite simply there would be no Dundee United Football Club.

98% of Foundation Members vote for funding proposal

By News

We are pleased to announce that the funding proposal put to Dundee United Supporters’ Foundation members in a ballot conducted over the last three days has been accepted. There was a turnout of 92% of the voting members with an overwhelming majority of 98% voting in favour of the proposal. This convincing result will allow the transfer of £60,000 to the Club to kick-start a campaign to raise a total target amount of £100,000. All income from DUSF monthly subscriptions and/or donations from current and new members will be transferred to the Club until 30th April 2021 or earlier if the £100,000 target is achieved sooner. Additionally, the arrangement agreed following the transfer of £100,000 in June 2020 will be extended by twelve months.
