About Barnsley FC Supporters Trust





Barnsley FC Supporters Trust was formed from the merger of the Barnsley FC Supporters Society and the Official Barnsley FC Supporters Club during 2005. The Supporters Trust is the largest Supporter's organisation which supports Barnsley FC. We hold regular meetings with Barnsley FC to raise issues that affect all Barnsley Supporters. We are also members of the Football Supporters Federation and Supporters Direct.

To go with the re-branding of the Supporters Trust, we also produced a new logo, which can be seen below.

The Supporters Trust is run by a board of 12 members, all elected by the members. A board member usually serves 2 years before retiring. Elections are held every 12 months at the AGM, where currently 50% of the board stand down. All members of the board work voluntarily and receive no income for all the work they conduct on behalf of the Trust
