Becoming a FORAS trustee

While many of the main objectives of FORAS changed rapidly throughout 2008, 2009 and into 2010, it’s primary objective of acting as a guardian of senior football in Cork has always held true.

The trust has set about securing the future of Cork City Football Club in two ways:

– attracting and increasing investment into the club by fostering links with local business and civic communities, an area not fully exploited in the past
– raising the local, national and international profile of the club

These activities continue today alongside a growing emphasis on player development and education, a stronger and more active role within both the local and League of Ireland communities as well as a belief that there is a very different and more effective way to run a football club.

In becoming a shareholder in FORAS, you lend credence to the assertion that supporters have a critical and long-term role as central stakeholders in the game. The trust has been the single biggest investor in Cork City FC since 2010 and will continue to play a vital supporting role in the years and decades to come.
