BRSIT initiative gathering pace

BRSIT initiative gathering pace

The Blackburn Rovers Supporters Investment Trust have revealed that pledges to the cause have now exceeded £1 million, Trust leader Wayne Wild has revealed.

The current total is reported to stand at around £1,200,000 which although a fair way short of the ballpark initial guideline of £10 million shows that fans are getting behind the plan.

Wild told the Lancashire Telegraph - "To have reached this milestone in pledges so quickly is fantastic. We have had the support of fans of Blackburn Rovers in all corners of the globe, who all want to see their club in their ownership.

"The passion and enthusiasm we have seen for our campaign and the will that exists out there for it to succeed just highlights what Blackburn Rovers means to its community and why it should be owned by the supporters.

"We need to keep the pledges coming in from supporters and the business community to show we are the most credible and attractive option for when the current owners decide they would like to sell the club.

"We are here to offer them a respectful and dignified exit strategy from their investment and, in the spirit of what is best for them and for Blackburn Rovers, we will keep asking for a dialogue with the owners or their representatives."

It appears that the current owners Venky's were unavailable for comment yesterday (shock of all horrors) but there is only so long they can hide given the mounting pressure on their reign.

Even if you can't afford or don't want to take part in the BRSIT scheme it is an idea that deserves full support.

Good to see progress being made - it has been mentioned a few times that the plan has a few hurdles to overcome but don't all plans have that!?

Progress indeed....but this all still hinges on Venky's wanting to sell? Honestly I still don't see that happening, even if we go down. The only way I see Venky's selling up is if someone offers ridiculous money and we know that isn't happening. However, this is a nice back up plan to have!

Don't agree with it myself, and won't be giving any support.
