The Newcastle United Supporters Trust (NUST) have released a positive update to members, detailing some of the progress that has been made over the past week in their bid to gain answers from the Premier League.
They reveal that MPs received OVER 7,000 letters from Newcastle fans pushing for answers from the Premier League, and, as a result, it’s also emerged that week one of the campaign saw 40 MPs commit to the cause and agree to apply some much needed pressure on Richard Masters and Co on our behalf.
In addition, the petition asking for an independent investigation into the EPL takeover process also passed 100,000 signatures over the weekend!
Here’s the NUFC Trust’s latest email to members, highlighting what’s come from a positive first week in their push to apply pressure on the Premier League:
NUST member update – 10th August
Last week we launched a way for you to write to your MP with a letter that asked them to demand transparency from the Premier League.
We have had a brilliant response to this with over 7,000 letters having been sent to MPs since launching.
It’s working – we’ve had approx. 40 MPs now commit to writing to the Premier League and a statement from the Prime Minster of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson supporting calls by the Independent Football Ombudsman asking the Premier League to make a statement regarding the takeover of Newcastle United.
Over 13,000 members strong now we ask that everyone please take 30 seconds and write to their MP using the website linked below. If you have a friend who isn’t a Trust member to share the link with them too.
