What Is ArabTRUST?

ArabTrust Logo

ArabTRUST - The Dundee United Supporters Society - started in 2003 and is now the third largest shareholder in the Dundee United Football Company Ltd.

Our strategic aims can best be summarised as supporting United’s youth and community work, whilst increasing our collective shareholding on behalf of fans and thereby increasing their influence at the Club.

Since its formation, ArabTRUST has invested around £200,000 in United, with most of this directed towards specific and essential items of youth development funding.

Funds raised by ArabTRUST are used to meet four main aims:

Raising funds for the DUFC youth system

Sponsorship of the non professional youth development teams for all age groups to allow purchase of essential playing kit. Purchase of further specific items of kit, such as track suits and polo shirts when necessary and assistance with transportation costs and other equipment. ArabTRUST has also provided assistance to the Club’s youth academy set up at St John’s High School, Dundee.

Assisting with and raising funds for football related community projects

Including specific funding for the Club’s not for profit community schools project run by Dave Bowman, the organisation of anti racism and anti sectarianism seminars for local schools and other community based projects.

Buying shares in the Dundee United Football Company Ltd.

ArabTRUST now holds the third largest shareholding in United giving our members a meaningful collective ownership stake in the Club. We pursue a policy of seeking shares in United in return for its funding inputs.

Fan Representation

ArabTRUST has an Associate Directorship on the United Board of Directors to ensure the views of our members are represented.

Funds are raised by sales of merchandise, donations from retailers via our Megastore, functions and, of course, membership fees.
