MUST is the independent Manchester United supporters' trust, an industrial and provident society composed of Manchester United supporters. We are recognised as the official Manchester United supporters' trust by Supporters Direct. Supporters Direct was up by Her Majesty's Government and funded by public money to encourage and facilitate supporter ownership of football clubs at every level of League football.
It is the convention of the groups of supporters which organise under this aegis as community-based, not-for-profit Industrial and Provident Societies, to call themselves by the names of their clubs. Hence, 'Wrexham Supporters Trust', 'Exeter City Supporters Trust', and so on.
Given the potential for confusion, we wish to make perfectly clear that although we are the Official Supporters Trust for Manchester United FC, we are not officially sanctioned, approved or supported by Manchester United Ltd.
