'Exciting new chapter' for Manx sport

Sporting Club Isle of Man to become a charity

The vice-chairman of Sporting Club Isle of Man says yesterday was a "new and exciting chapter for Manx sporting endeavours," with the organisation being officially launched.

Paul Jones spoke to Manx Radio about the announcement:

Sporting Club Isle of Man will become a charity in the near future, where members of the community can pay a membership subscription to become a part of it.

Clubs owned by that body, including FC Isle of Man, will always be at least 51% owned by those members - as written in the articles of association.
