Following yesterday’s EFL announcement to curtail the Sky Bet League One season, the Club will be offering supporters the chance to convert their remaining 2019/20 season ticket balance to shares within Lincoln City Football Club Company Limited. This balance will include the remaining 5 home games along with the lost Bury fixture from November.
Converting your remaining balance to shares will significantly help the Club financially during this difficult period and we have made this process as simple as possible to make it easy for supporters to choose this option. It also gives fans the opportunity to own shares in their football club.
Supporters will be given the choice of having shares in their name or to donate their shares to the Red Imps Community Trust. Both options will be hugely beneficial to the future of Lincoln City FC. You can find out more about the Red Imps Community Trust HERE. It is worth noting that anyone who converts to shares on behalf of the Red Imps Community Trust will be entitled to a complimentary membership to the Trust for the 2020/21 season.
All supporters who select the share option in their name will receive a share certificate, will be entitled to attend the AGM as a shareholder and will also have their name included on a roll of honour which will form part of the design within the tunnel at LNER Stadium.
There is a further option for season ticket holders to request a refund on a pro rata basis. Whatever you decide, we support your decision. We understand these are unprecedented times for all and everyone at Lincoln City FC is grateful for your support.
Season ticket holders will receive an email tomorrow afternoon, whereby they can submit their preferred option.
Finally, we hope to see you all back at the LNER Stadium in the near future cheering on the Imps!
What is the price of shares in Lincoln City Football Club Company Limited?
Each share will be offered at the value of 50p per share.
Can I convert to shares in the name of someone else, e.g. another adult or child?
Yes. On the form there will be a section where you can nominate the shareholder.
Can I donate instead of converting to shares?
For anyone wishing to simply donate, we would recommend converting shares to the Red Imps Community Trust.
