Hull supporters urge FA to reject Allem's Tigers proposal

Hull City supporters' group City Till We Die (CTWD) has urged the Football Association to reject a proposal to change the club name.

Current owner Assem Allam has lodged an application to alter the name from Hull City AFC to Hull Tigers which would bring to an end a tradition that has lasted longer than 100 years.

CTWD have issued a document outlining their reasons for wanting to keep the name intact, urging the FA to make the correct decision.

"This is a pivotal moment for English football," the document read.

"The FA decision makers can become the heroes that protected the national game. Or they can usher in a new era where money and ego matter more than anything else.

"Today's members of the Football Association are the fortunate ones - they have the chance, right now, to make a statement that will protect the unique selling point of English football - its history, its culture and therefore its success.

"This decision is pivotal to English football - exercise your choice wisely, with an eye on the future as well as an appreciation of the present."
