Executive Summary

The purpose of Jersey Bulls FC is to establish an independent Jersey based football club, locally owned with a focus on the Jersey football and wider Island community.

Strong community links will be developed with accessibility to all and discrimination against no-one; admission prices will be affordable and offered to as wide a constituency as possible; and participation, both playing and supporting, to local youngsters will be encouraged. Any financial surpluses will be re-invested for the future viability of the club and for the benefit of the local community.

The club will offer players, officials and volunteers the opportunity to be involved in an exciting football project that will put Jersey football on the UK map. We are supported and guided by the English Football Association.

The club is entering a Senior team into the English Football League System for the 2019/2020 season. With the fantastic success the Jersey Island men’s team has achieved in recent history – such as winning the Gold Medal in the Aland Island Games, winning numerous Muratti fixtures against Guernsey who compete in the Isthmian League, winning the FA National League System Cup in 2012 thus representing England in the UEFA Regions Cup in San Marino in March 2013 – we believe that the time is now right to offer our senior Island players the opportunity to progress further by playing week in / week out in an English league of an appropriate standard.

The structure of the club and our long-term plans of working alongside those involved in youth football in the Island, will also, in time, provide a strong player development pathway from Junior to Senior football in the competitive leagues against English opposition. It will also improve the level of coaching in the Island and offer more opportunities for local coaches to learn and develop their skills. It should be noted that there is absolutely no intention for this to be achieved to the detriment of the local football leagues, but instead we hope to work in conjunction with all of the local clubs to enhance all levels of football in the Island.

For local football supporters, these proposals provide a new and exciting prospect to support the Island’s best players as they seek to compete on a greater stage and will provide a genuine and enhanced interest in the local game.

Our business plan advocates a fantastic product which will raise the profile of Jersey as both an Island and a serious football community. However, the plan clearly cannot be implemented without significant financial commitment, particularly given that we will need to cover the costs of visiting teams and officials to Jersey as well as the club’s costs in travelling to away fixtures.

Our financial plan indicates a total required expenditure in years 1-3 of approx. £250,000 per annum, which we will meet by way of a combination of sponsorships, inc
