Re: [Tykeoldboy] Who owns/can own a club? or Reply Privately

Again, thanks to everyone. The depth of knowledge or the knowing where to find things always amazes me.

The FA handbook answered most of my questions I think.

The "asset" that intrigued me is membership (full or associate) of the FA or the membership of an affiliated FA Association and it is transferable, subject to meeting certain conditions.

It appears, although it's not explicit, that membership can only be "owned" through a constituted body (incorporated or unincorporated) not a natural person(s).

The FA handbook lists club owners but only those that have direct membership of the FA. Presumably the affiliated Associations maintain records of their members. Anyone know if those are available anywhere?

Also does anyone know why a club would apply for Full or Associate membership of the FA rather than stick with an affiliated Association? I can understand why the 92 (or 91) would do so and maybe the Conference but below that?
