About Us

Tyne Bridge at Night

The Newcastle United Supporters Trust is not a protest group, but a positive force for change.

The Newcastle United Supporters Trust (NUST) seeks to benefit both the Football Club and its supporters by channeling the passion of Newcastle supporters into a forward-thinking organisation that is a legally constituted, democratic, not-for-profit Supporters Trust of Newcastle United.

Who We Are

  • NUST membership is open to all fans of Newcastle United.
  • NUST is totally independent of Newcastle United Football Club.
  • NUST is a non-profit making Supporters Trust.
  • NUST board members do not gain financially from their involvement.
  • NUST is democratic: one member one vote.
  • NUST seek involvement at the Club at the highest level.
  • NUST would like to have ownership of as much of the Club as is feasible, and shall be looking to extend this to the maximum possible at any given time.

The Aims of The Newcastle United Supporters Trust (NUST)

Our main aim is to work with supporters to raise sufficient funds to buy a stake in the club.


  • The Trust is financed by its members for its members.
  • The first pound of your initial membership fee buys you a share in the trust. All other funds contribute to the strength of running the trust.
  • The Trust intends to ring fence a percentage of the funds to go towards a fund to be used to purchase a stake in the Club if ever possible.
  • Additional Trust revenue will be brought in through sponsorship and income generation via events and fundraising.
