The Board extends its sincere gratitude to Susan for the leadership she has given to ArabTRUST during her tenure as chair. She steps down as Chair with the thanks of ArabTRUST.
Where do you start to pay tribute to the Jim McLean Statue Tribute Group?
TRUST wish to put on record their gratitude to the work done by The Group to take this idea to reality. Well done to supporters groups Arab
TRUST, DUBC, DUSF, ULT83 and the independents who formed the group and steered a dream into a a result that Jim McLean would have approved of.
But for lockdown restrictions, the statue of Jim McLean would already be installed at Tannadice. The statue is a tribut...
Board member Martin passed away on Saturday 11 September.
Martin was a devoted supporter of Dundee United and served as a member Arab
TRUST Board. He was a a voice for inclusion and was an advocate for the rights of supporters. Martin was a good friend to have and we all learned from his calm and measured approach. His service to others was a lesson to us all.

Thanks to the fantastic efforts of the Team DUCT Kiltwalkers, over £4,800 has been raised so far for the Christmas Meal for local people that may not have any family with whom to spend Christmas Day and families that may need extra support at this time of year.

The Arab Trust-backed appeal to raise a total of £70,000 to ensure that the dream of a Jim McLean statue sited at Tannadice becomes a reality, has reached the fantastic sum of £35,549.85.
The club's greatest manager took the club to undreampt-of heights and, for many United supporters. making a contribution to the statue fund is simply their way of saying thanks to Jim McLean for providing them with so many happy memories. For more information about the project, details of forthcomi...
There have been many occasions when United supporters have been “proud to be an Arab” and for many of us, the sixty-fifth minute of Saturday’s match against ICT was one of them.
What a genuine and enthusiastic tribute the 7,000 crowd paid to the late Alastair ‘Breeks’ Brodie, Arab Trust Foundation Member and long-time organiser of the two Tangerine Trading Posts in Tannadice. The standing ovation was entirely fitting, just what the unswervingly dedicated Breeks des...

DUCT made contact with Dundee’s Revive and Restore Café (or R & R for short) after hearing about the important work being carried out by the volunteer-led café, which located in Coldside Church and helps those who want to engage or stay engaged in recovery from dependency problems.

Arab Trust is very proud to support and be involved in the Dundee United Community Trust. An announcement yesterday by DUFC exemplified why:

Jimmy is a life long United fan who hasn't been to Tannadice for many a year due to ill health thoroughly enjoyed his day and got a pleasant surprise when he bumped into his all time favourite player Hamish McAlpine.
Jimmy also visited the football museum which topped off a great day and would like to thank everyone at the club, the DUBC and Arab

Dundee United is proudly supporting Show Racism the Red Card's Fortnight of Action.

All professional clubs will show their support is coming weekend calling for an end to racism in football and society. Players in over 40 European countries are involved in similar events as part of the Football Against ...
Recent results and performances have simply not been acceptable to anyone with the best interests of the Club at heart and this has inevitably resulted in our Club seeking their 5th Manager in only 3 years.
TRUST support the decision made by the DUFC Board in pursuing a new Manager to help the Club achieve promotion this season and we would hope that the recruitment process undertaken by the Club will ensure that aim.
With so much to play for until the end of the season, it is vital that t...

The women's team got their share of the limelight this year which is really positive, the players (both women and men) trained and did autographs, there was penalty shoot outs, walking football and enough stalls keep people interested.
Stuart Campbell Blog August 2018
Its difficult to know where to start, almost every department at the club has changed over the last few months, we have a team full of new players, improved hospitality and more planned and there has been a major change in shareholding, it really doesn’t get more radical than that.
TRUST’s view is that we are supportive of the changes made to date but understand that change can be difficult even painful especially for the people directly involve...
Some magical moments in this list of memories and lots missed.
Will create hot debate amongst fans,
TRUST welcome today’s news that current Dundee United Directors, Mike Martin and Jimmy Fyffe, along with two other lifelong Dundee United fans and local businessmen have purchased the total shareholding of former majority shareholder and club chairman Stephen Thompson.
This brings to an end a period of instability where the clubs major shareholder did not sit on the club board. The share sale brings full control of the club’s future back within the board and will hopefully allow...

Hopefully the away support will get to see a full 90 minutes of game this time unlike our aborted trip to Dumfries earl...

It is only the second week of August and already United have played 8 competitive games so far this season! It was great to start off by topping our league cup group, and while it was then disappointing to get knocked out in a derby in the grand scheme of things to start the league campaign with two victories is probably far more important. There is a real positivity about the team with many of the recent signings already making a big impact on the team, no...
