Money matters: Big Issue Invest, The Association of Charity Officers, FC United

 Source: Third Sector
 FC United, the community-owned football club set up by Manchester United fans, hopes to raise £1.5m through a community share issue to build a new stadium at Newton Heath. It will be the first football club to raise money through a community share issue, where people pay small amounts of money to buy a share in a mutually owned business. Community shares have been used to bring pubs and shops into local ownership.
