The Killie Trust have continued their unwavering support of Kilmarnock with another big financial move.
Like many clubs, the Rugby Park club are facing an uncertain financial future as the SPFL season is currently suspended due to a global health pandemic. Play has been halted until April 30 but the return date is going to be much further away than that.
It means revenue streams are drying up but the Killie Trust have stepped up. The third biggest shareholder in Kilmarnock, they have already seen new memberships surge past a total of £5,000 and pledged £50,000 to the club.
Now they have issued a new update. A huge 98% of The Killie trust have voted to donate its future monthly subscriptions to the club, with £7,000 expected to be handed over each month if pledges remain at the level they’re at just now.
It’s a big boost for the club as cash revenue from regular income streams looks in short supply over the next few months without football.
