The cooperative was formed last month (June 2019) and aims to re-establish strong community ties and partnerships within Cobh town and Cork more broadly.
“The new Board of Cobh Ramblers recognises the importance of greater engagement with our local community and re-igniting the great amount of goodwill that exists for the club in Cork and nationally.
To this end, we have established a new cooperative which is member-owned and run with a range of membership options. Membership options will include Local Membership, National Membership (available from 2020) and International Membership. We also provide a special discounted rate for OAPs.
Within this new structure, each member critically has equal voting rights into the running of the club in an open, inclusive and transparent manner.
Cognisant of how well this structure works in other clubs, we are very confident this new member-owned model will help us prosper and grow sustainable as we approach our centenary year in 2022.
We are delighted that the Irish Supporters Network has accepted our request to link up with them and we look forward to the networking opportunities that our club will now have with ISN, and further afield with SD Europe and Football Supporters Europe (FSE).
This is a new dawn for Cobh Ramblers and we would actively encourage as many people as possible to get involved and join us on our adventure.”
Anyone wishing to get involved with the football club as a volunteer or club partner is invited to get in touch directly via email on cobhramsPRO@gmail.com or by calling our club office on 021-4813078
