About Us

Until January 2024 the Supporters’ Trust was the majority shareholder in Newport County AFC, making the Exiles one of a handful of supporter-owned clubs in the English football pyramid.

While more than 100 Trusts hold equity in their clubs, the Newport County AFC Trust was one of just a handful of EFL clubs owned by its supporters.

One of more than 140 Supporters’ Trusts around the UK, the Trust is an affiliate member of the Football Supporters’ Association, the national, democratic, representative body for football supporters in England and Wales.

The Trust was originally formed in 2001 and took a controlling stake in the football club in October 2015 following a community share issue that saw County supporters raise a magnificent £236,000 in just a month.

Before 2024 Newport County AFC had been a supporter-owned, community-based club.

In January 2024 Huw Jenkins OBE became the majority shareholder and Chairman of Newport County AFC, and took hold of the reins from the Trust.

The Newport County AFC Supporters’ Trust still own mighty chunk of the club, and have two of its’ directors sitting on Club’s Board – to liaise with topics brought forward by our members, and vice-versa.

As a Trust member your ongoing support will help ensure our ongoing influence in a fantastic football club.

The Trust is run on a day-to-day basis by a board of volunteer directors elected by its members.
