TUST Press Release
Updated: Oct 1, 2020
TUST, on behalf of the Yellow Army, and all other National League fans, is relieved to learn that, with the 2020-21 season just days away, the Government has bowed to the growing pressure put on it, to hand a bailout grant thought to be £2 - £3 million per month to support all clubs in the three divisions.
TUST has, along with many other organisations and individuals, contributed to and supported the campaign to save the National League.
As the Minister for Sport, Nigel Huddlestone said today, “ local teams are the heartbeats of their communities.”
Whilst the funding is an important, vital element, TUST urges all football fans to contact their MP to petition for stadiums to be re-opened as soon as it is safe to do so. The live streaming of matches is a very welcome initiative but is no substitute for supporters being inside grounds.
