Glass ceiling for fan owned clubs

Share/Save

Portsmouth chairman Ian McInnes has admitted in an interview with The Times that there is a glass ceiling to the fan ownership model used at Pompey.  If success breeds ambition there may come a day when Portsmouth's fans have to cede ownership to an outside investor.

The Pompey Supporters Trust owns 47.6 per cent of the club with the next biggest shareholder owning 10.75 per cent.    Three PST members sit on the board of seven.
