MCT Update - 3rd January 2022

Dear members,

We hope you’re all well and enjoyed your festive period.

Before Christmas, GMFC received an email from an individual representing an unknown consortium of businessmen. This email offered to invest money into upgrading Cappielow and its infrastructure, and in return be gifted ownership of the stadium and be given the shares to become majority shareholder in the football club. The proposed investment is much lower than the current value of Cappielow.

Had this offer been a credible one, as the current majority shareholders, MCT would have gone out to its members and sought their views on the matter. However, this offer is not deemed to be in the best interests of MCT, our members or the football club. The club would lose ownership of the stadium, the club would no longer be community owned and there would be no working capital invested into the football club. As the nominated representatives of the club majority shareholder, the MCT board can confirm it will not be progressing any further with this offer.

If the club had received a credible offer then it would be put to you, our members, for your consideration.

2021 was a historic year for Morton Club Together and for Greenock Morton Football Club, as we achieved our goal of community ownership. It hasn’t been as smooth a journey as we would have liked to date, but the MCT team of volunteers work tirelessly on a daily basis to make improvements and in-roads where we can. We know there are areas of concern and confusion, such as the relationship between MCT and GMFC and how they work together to improve the club as a whole, and these are priority areas for us to make as clear as possible for our members and the wider Morton support. As 2022 begins we’re as determined as ever to achieve our new goal of making our version of community ownership the benchmark.

The Greenock Morton support is as passionate a support as anyone is likely to come across in Scottish football. Including partial responses, we received over 1,000 responses to our recent Supporter Survey. Now the deadline has passed and the festive period has finished, we’re getting to work on analysing those responses, presenting them back to supporters and proposing actions to the MCT and GMFC boards.

If you’re a season ticket holder, the ballot for the Dunfermline game is open to enter here. It closes at 12pm on Tuesday 4th January.
