This is a critical period in the history of Ebbsfleet United FC and without new investment it is unlikely that the football club will survive. The club has not paid its players and staff for April 2013, it is being threatened with legal action by a number of creditors and such is the uncertainty surrounding the future of the club that it is yet to market season tickets for next season.
KEH Sports Ltd, a newly formed subsidiary of Kuwaiti European Holding Company, is committed to restructuring and reinvigorating the club and to investing significant sums of money to firstly guarantee its survival and then to put in place the foundations for future success. We will act in a financially responsible manner and all our investment will be in the form of equity and not loans which should give real reassurance of our intentions to the club’s supporters.
Our priority will be initially to build a new first team squad and to introduce a range of football support functions to ensure maximum performance on the pitch. We have made an offer to acquire a sports ground in Gravesend which will not only operate as the club’s training ground headquarters but will be a facility for use by the local community as it is our intention to build a real community club and one of which its supporters and the community at large can be rightly proud.
We will be drawing up plans in consultation with Gravesham Borough Council to develop the stadium at Stonebridge Road and in our offer to the club have made a substantial financial commitment relating to the construction of the first new stand at the club.
This can be the start of an exciting new era for Ebbsfleet United FC and by voting yes today you can help us start what hopefully will be an enjoyable and a successful future. I hope we can count on your support.
