Before he resigned, Sir Alex Ferguson had said he’d like to have Ronaldo back. Ronaldo has stated he wants to return.
On the basis of these two comments a small group of football supporters have launched a crowdfunding campaign simply titled “BringRonaldoHome“. As previously reported the crowdfunding campaign allows Manchester United fans around the world to support their cause.
Currently the campaign stands at over 4000 fans having pledged to support this crowdfunding effort.
“We have been inspired by the loyalty and dedication of Manchester United fans. To be a ‘true’ fan requires the ‘living’ experience of football. It is not about being a mere spectator; it is about being a participant. We wanted to give fans an opportunity to be involved.”
“The Internet is now a significant resource in the world of football. Fans spend increasing amounts of their time on football websites accessing up-to-the-minute information about events specific to their team and discussing issues on blogs.
“What we have done is develop a construct, based on crowd funding principles, which will tap into this incredible global fan support that Manchester United has – to help deliver the goods – to give the fans an opportunity for their voice to deliver an action.”
Proceeds will be conditionally provided to Manchester United to enable them to use the fan-sourced funds to secure Ronaldo’s transfer. Should Manchester United succeed – then each pledger will be asked to pay the balance of the shirt price to receive their Ronaldo Manchester United shirt – in his new strip. Should Manchester United fail – pledge funds will be returned.
