Relegation Statement

The Supporters Trust, like all Inverness Caledonian Thistle supporters, is saddened by the relegation of the football club to League One and by the sorry state that the club finds itself in. A series of questionable decisions in numerous aspects of the stewardship of the club has led us to this situation.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC is at a crossroads. The decisions made now will have an impact for decades to come, which is why they need to be the right ones. The club has experienced severe financial difficulties since being relegated to the championship. A prolonged period in League One will exacerbate this.


We are therefore calling on significant change to be made at the top of the club. Individuals with fresh ideas have joined the Board of Directors in recent times, and new additions have been made behind the scenes, but more change is needed. The burden of the current failure lies squarely at the feet of the leadership, and we now demand change that allows fresh stewardship of the football club. 


The relationship between those running the football club and its supporters is at an all-time low. As a Supporters Trust we have the objective of the greatest possible supporter and community influence in the running and ownership of Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC and that fans are communicated to with honesty and transparency. 


We urge supporters to join the Supporters Trust and help build the Stronger Together Fund, which aims to increase our shareholding of the football club and assist in creating a sustainable football club with supporters at its heart. To that end, as part of the club’s planned restructure, we are calling for a democratically elected fans’ representative to sit on Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC’s Board of Directors. 


The club’s planned restructure must prioritise spend on the first team and the club’s youth infrastructure over everything else to ensure that we have a full-time first team squad for the League One campaign and that the future of the Football Academy is protected. In the coming seasons the club will need to supplement and staff the first team squad with a greater number of academy players, something that the current First Team manager has continually refused to do. 


Only by making these changes can Inverness Caledonian Thistle move forward, reconnect with the fanbase and provide our supporters with a football club of which they can be proud.
