Action follows Glazer announcement

icon manutdThe Manchester United Supporters' Trust (MUST) has called for a worldwide boycott of the club's sponsors' products. The move is a reaction against the Glazer family's plans to take half the proceeds of United's upcoming initial public offering on the New York stock exchange. It had seemed that all the proceeds would go towards lowering of the club's £430 million debts, but a recent announcement has stated otherwise. A spokesperson for the Trust said: "The Glazer family sell the rights to our loyalty and devotion for the club to sponsors for many millions but then use that money to pay off their self imposed debt. It has to stop and we want the IPO shelved and a proper fan ownership model put in place – one share, one vote."
