About RangersFirst

Rangers First was created as a result of a series of meetings on Community Ownership and Fan Governance organised by Supporters Direct Scotland and held in The Louden Tavern, Copland Road, Glasgow. The first of these meetings took place on February 14th when a presentation on Community Ownership and the CIC model, or Community Interest Company model, was given by Richard Atkinson, a member of the Supporters Direct Council. Following an enthusiastic and unanimous acceptance of the principles of the CIC model presented by Richard on the 14th, subsequent meetings then followed on February 18th, 24th and March 3rd. The decision on proceeding with the name RangersFirst was taken at the meeting held on February 24th.

Rangers First is being created by a small number of lifelong Rangers fans who see a new and very different way forward for the club, based on Community Ownership. With regards to current trustees or board of the CIC, there will initially only be one director who is a neutral solicitor With assistance from SDS They will oversee the setup of the working groups, the development and launch of the scheme leading to full democratic elections from the membership within the next 90 days The working groups will consist of lawyers, financiers, accountants, business (including football), IT and marketing specialists which should bring together a wide range of skills and experience. The members of the working groups share a passion for Rangers and every single member will provide his or her expertise at absolutely no cost.

The working groups will form part of the consultation process that sees the CIC bring new rules, memorandum and articles of association to the first general meeting of the CIC, where the existing temporary director will step down and be replaced with a fully democratic board and see the adoption of the new Rangers First rules for the company.
