gain ownership of any professional club, but be interested in holding minority shares as a
way of encouraging and developing its membership.

FOMB will protect the integrity of the sport we all love, without prejudice. Invest in the sport
across all age groups and minorities and use the assets we have around us to drive that
initiative.
