Hull City have released a statement stating their disappointment with the FA who were advised by its membership committee to reject the clubs plan to change their name to Hull Tigers. "We feel we have been prejudiced right from the outset. The FA introduced a new policy to handle our application on the back of consultations with the City TilWe Die group, and we therefore feel that our application was already pre-judged.
"This feeling has been reinforced with yesterday's announcement, as the club feels this will further prejudice the forthcoming ballot of season pass holders.
"However, this is now the time for the silent majority to come forward and support the club's aspirations. Details of the ballot will be released to season pass holders within the next 48 hours."
