The Manchester United Supporters' Trust and Spirit of Shankly have both submitted separate nominations to their local councils for their stadiums to be registered as "Assets of Community Value". If the applications are successful it would mean that if either ground was ever put up for sale there would be an opportunity to purchase it and secure its future for the community, as Supporters Direct explain.
