I’m interested what the opinion is to this as WWFC is currently a Trust-owned club.
An outside investor buying a minority stake in WWFC would mean it was still a trust-owned club (albeit not 100% anymore). That would allow extra funds to come into the club without it surrendering its trust-owned status.
An investor requiring a majority stake would effectively put money in but would be the new owner of the club. Although the new owners may wish to see a supporters’ trust remain, it effectively ceases to hold any power.
If both scenarios above fail for any reason, option (1) does allow the Trust to continue running the club, although the financial repercussions would be serious. Option (2) means the club would be left in the lap of the gods.
It’s a vitally important question as the current problems at Blackpool, Swansea, Coventry, Blackburn and Charlton will testify to.
