Kilmarnock fans have shown that they are ready to back their club heavily in the wake of the SPFL’s suspension.
Killie, like every club in Scotland, face an uncertain wait to see how the 2019/20 season pans out. It has been put on hold in the wake of a global health pandemic that has cancelled many major events.
There’s no gate money, hospitality or kiosk money coming in at Rugby Park right now – and fans have stepped up to the mark to help their team out.
The Killie Trust, Kilmarnock’s third largest shareholder, have witnessed subscriptions soar by almost £5,000 in the last 24 hours alone.
They are also still in the process of upgrading memberships, taking on more subscriptions and adding more members to their valuable cause.
The trust aims to provide direct influence on what happens at Rugby Park, consulting supporters before final decisions are made by the board of directors. It also looks to build key relationships between the community and its football team.
This rapid growth in subscriptions will allow Kilmarnock to continue to build on projects the club have going, funds especially vital when many are facing anxious waits over their financial futures.
