icon japanball2 October ~ Hull City fans have set up a community group to protect their club's identity. City owner Assem Allam has stated that he wants to change the club's name to Hull Tigers, saying: "I cannot afford to run the club by fans' feeling… Hull City is irrelevant. My dislike to the world City is because it is common… City is a lousy identity." The City Till We Die group aim to unite all Hull fans against the name change and are calling for proper consultation with supporters on any alteration. Among various initiatives they have set up a petition, which can be signed here.
