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.
