Assem Allam formally requests change
12 December ~ The Hull City campaign group City Till We Die have have called on the FA to block owner Assem Allam's proposed "Hull City Tigers" name change for the club. Allem has formally written to the FA to request the name change from the 2014-15 season. City Till We Die say Allam promised to rename the club only after consulting with the club's supporters, though no consultation has taken place. He has previously called the name Hull City AFC "common" and a "lousy identity". The group believe this is a matter for all football fans, and urge everyone to sign the petition they have launched against the move.
