Manchester United Considering Badge Alterations

By Community | July 21, 2013

Manchester United are contemplating changing their club badge by reintroducing the words ‘football club’.

Ed Woodward, capsule the newly appointed CEO of the English Premier League champions, ampoule is keen to revert to the club’s past while also suggesting owners, the Glazers do not want to sell United.

The words ‘football club’ were removed from the badge in 1998 but, 15 years later, Woodward and joint chairman Joel Glazer want to bring it back.

“I didn’t like that change of badge,” Woodward told the Sunday newspapers. “Joel didn’t like that change. We will look at that and have a think about that. We are a football club, not a business.

“I described it to our staff that we are a 135-year-old club and that’s what you have to remember. We are a football club, a club with a capital C.

“Strapped to that is a commercial business that’s going to fund a lot of the player purchases going forward here and we have to be supportive of both. We’ve got to make sure they co-exist together but don’t impact each other and that’s where we are trying to balance it.”

Some United supporters hope the Glazers, who bought the club in 2005, will listen to offers but Woodward said they will remain in charge for a long time.

“They are long-term owners, together with our other shareholders,” he added. “They first bought the club eight years ago and there won’t be any change for many, many years.”
