Matchwinner - Hull City A.F.C. - Netflix

Hull City Association Football Club () is a professional football club in Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, England. Founded in 1904, the club plays in the Championship, the second tier of English football. In 2007–08, they achieved promotion to the top flight of English football for the first time in their history by winning the Championship play-off Final at Wembley Stadium. Their highest league finish was in 2013–14, when they finished 16th in the table, a season in which they also reached the final of the FA Cup. Hull City play home games at the KCOM Stadium, having moved there in 2002 after 56 seasons at Boothferry Park. Hull traditionally play in black and amber, often with a striped shirt design, hence their nickname, The Tigers.

Matchwinner - 2014: Resistance and rejection - Netflix

Some brand and marketing experts have come out in support of the name change. Nigel Currie, director of sports marketing agency Brand Rapport, stated that “the whole process has been conducted badly with the supporters, but [the name change] is a pretty sound idea.” Simon Chadwick, professor of Sport Business Strategy and Marketing at the Coventry University Business School, opined that the objective of opening up lucrative new markets for shirt sales, merchandise and broadcast deals shows commercial vision and could bring benefits, but “this needs to be backed up by a proper marketing strategy and investment.” He said, “it's no use thinking changing the name or the colour of the shirt will pay instant dividends.” David Stern, commissioner of the National Basketball Association in the United States, warned: “I would say a wise owner [of a sports club] would view his ownership as something of a public trust, in addition to the profit motive, and you really do want to allow the fans a little bit more input than I think is being allowed, with respect to Hull.” On 17 March 2014, the FA membership committee advised that the name change application be rejected at the FA Council meeting on 9 April. In response, the club published a statement saying the FA was “prejudiced” and criticised the committee's consultation with the City Till We Die opposition group. The following week, the club opened a ballot of season ticket holders over the name change. Opponents of the name change criticised as “loaded” the questions, which asked respondents to choose between “Yes to Hull Tigers with the Allam family continuing to lead the club”, “No to Hull Tigers” and “I am not too concerned and will continue to support the club either way”, on the grounds that voters were not given the option to reject the name while keeping the Allam family as owners. Of 15,033 season ticket holders, 5,874 voted in all, with 2,565 voting in favour of the change and 2,517 against, while 792 chose the “not too concerned” option. On 9 April 2014, the FA Council announced its decision, carried by a 63.5% vote of its members, to reject the club's application for a name change. The club responded by stating it will appeal the decision. However, since there is no appeal process with the FA and its Council, the decision is final. On 11 September 2014, Allam confirmed an appeal has been submitted to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. He also held a news conference confirming the club had been put up for sale due to the English FA's decision on 9 April 2014. In October 2014, interviewed by the BBC, Allam confirmed that he would “not invest a penny more in the club” unless he is allowed to change the club's name to Hull Tigers. In the same interview, Allam said, “I have never been a football fan. I am still not a football fan. I am a community fan.”
