NEWSLETTER No.11 of 2023/2024

Dear Member,

1. MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS

The 2023/2024 Manchester United Football Club (MUFC) Official Membership was sold out in January 2024 with over 360,000 Official Members. The second time that this has occurred, the highest membership ever in world sport. This creates a huge demand for match tickets. MUFC has already opened renewals and new memberships for 2024/2025 season and specify that they do not know until when the membership will remain open with such demand. Therefore, the Branch is ready to accept applications for renewals and new memberships for the coming season. The enclosed Membership Application Form shows the different categories/types and respective membership fees for the season 2024/2025. MUFC and Local Branch membership fees remain the same as last season. There has been no change in categories/types or fees. Due to the new Manchester United Supporters Club’s (MUSC) Charter, the MUFC fees and the Local Branch fees had to be separated but the amount payable is the TOTAL as shown on the forms.

Manchester United will no longer provide the physical membership cards. All categories/types of memberships contain the digital membership card, which you may download to your mobile phone. Purchased match tickets may also be downloaded to your mobile phone.

In order to renew your membership you are requested to complete and return the local membership form enclosed, together with the appropriate fee for your category/type of membership. We will then renew your membership with the Branch and with Manchester United. Manchester United may send you a reminder, in the coming weeks, inviting you to renew the Membership, please disregard this request. If you have any queries or difficulties in completing the form please contact the Ticketing and Membership Secretary who will provide whatever assistance is required.

Preferably payments should be made through online banking details as follows:

                                 Name: MAN UNITED SUPPORTER

                                 Sort Code: 60-60-60

                                 Account No.: 48120278

                                 Please give your name as reference

If however this is not a convenient option, Cheques (payable to M.U.S.G.B.) or Cash payments are acceptable.                             

As in the previous years, we will receive an allocation of a fixed number of tickets for every Premiership home game. The allocation will be dependent on the number of members we have as at 1st August 2024. It is therefore in the interest of all members that the Branch has the highest possible number of members registered by that deadline. We should therefore be grateful if you would return the completed form before the 15th July 2024 in order to achieve the greatest allocation possible. It is for this reason that members who are registered with the Branch before the 15th July will be given priority for match tickets and Branch Trip games over those who renew or become members after this date. 

The Committee would like to remind members that by enrolling as a local member you will automatically take part in a raffle which can win you a trip to Old Trafford when the Branch organises its annual trip  (up to a maximum of £750).  

2. TICKETS

Please note that tickets requested by members are to be used by the member requesting the ticket(s) and cannot be transferred to another member or non-member without the written consent of the Branch.

Wine Tasting

The Branch wishes to announce a Protos Wine Tasting with pairing Tapas to be held at the Club Premises on Tuesday 26thMarch 2024 at 7pm. A representative from Bodegas Protos will be visiting Gibraltar and thanks to Saccone & Speed Ltd, we will have the opportunity of tasting some of their wines. 

Bodegas Protos is a historic wine producer and precursor of the worldwide recognised fine wines of Ribera Del Duero. The tasting will consist of one White Wine, one Rose Wine and three Red Wines, all combined with their appropriate tapas. The representative from Bodegas Protos will guide us through the tasting of these amazing wines.

Spaces are limited and for just £20 per person, these will be sold out quickly. Members are allowed to bring one guest per member for the same price of £20. To reserve your seat or seats, please pay the full amount at the club. This will be treated on a first come first served basis. Please note that if by Friday 8th March 2024 there are still spaces available, the committee will offer these to other guests, so please react quickly to avoid disappointment.

30th Anniversary Dinner 

As many of you know, the 30th Anniversary Dinner had to be cancelled due to the poor response of the membership. 

The Committee feels proud of the 30 years we have been registered as an Official Branch of MUFC and the journey the Branch has travelled through these 30 years to find ourselves in the position our Branch sits today. We have amazing premises with great character, which were inaugurated by the best manager in the world, Sir Alex Ferguson. We also have great relationship with our colleagues at MUFC. 

Therefore, the committee feels our Branch merits this Dinner to celebrate it’s 30th Anniversary and has rescheduled the same. Very soon you will receive a newsletter on this event with some changes to the original plans. The Committee would really appreciate a good response from membership on this occasion, showing gratitude for the hard work done and the journey we have all travelled together.

Committee Members

We need to inform you that David Bonfiglio elected as Membership & Ticketing Secretary at the AGM resigned from the committee on the 7th December 2023 and since then Jason Segovia, elected as Committee Member at the AGM, has undertaken the duties and responsibilities of the Membership & Ticketing Secretary. We wish to congratulate and thank Jason for the great job he is doing.

Also Duncan Infante elected as Secretary at the AGM resigned from the Committee on the 26th February 2024. At the moment we are sharing the duties and responsibilities of the Secretary role within the committee.
