Apologies to those of you whose team is playing in the Irn-Bru cup that afternoon, but you are very welcome to come along for the first few hours if you would like to join us for part of the day. The morning session will focus on supporter ownership, hearing from the Well Society about their first experiences as a fan-owned club, and comparing their journey to supporter ownership with the steps being taken at Hearts and St Mirren. The afternoon session will include a range of workshop sessions on issues beyond supporter ownership, and there will of course be lots of opportunities to meet and talk to people from around the country and beyond.
