It's an interesting concept for ownership of an English football team. Basically, people from all over the globe pay 35 into a fund, and become part owner of an honest to God, English football team.

Disclaimer:
Randy, you may stop reading at this point. We all know you hate soccer.

Once the team is purchased, fans will vote online on everything from player purchases to tactics. It's an interesting concept of fan control that I've plowed my 35 into just to see what happens.

MyFootballClub Society Ltd is registered with the Financial Services Authority, registration number 30275R

erm... it would. if that was a valid registration number. They're usually just numbers.
...and a search of the FSA register by name finds no results.

ahh. That's not an FSA reference number. it's (most of) the company number, as registered with company house (IP30275R).

However, by law, all documentation they produce must have their registered office address on it. I see no address on the website, infact, i can't find any contact details at all.

edit: christ... i finally found it. bloody hard to find though.
161 Kennigton Park Road
London
SE11 4DP

however i cant find shit all at that address. I did find this however

MY FOOTBALL CLUB LIMITED
Company No: 06215636
Incorporated: 17/04/2007

TOP FLOOR FLAT,
87 HARWOOD ROAD
FULHAM
LONDON
SW6 4QL

though this company you are on about was apparently incorporated on July 16th. So it's probably a different company.

hmmm... however, despite all that, I think it's a genuine company, it's got so much press latley that the FSA would have stepped in an issued a statement if it was bogus. (well you'd hope they would)

Oh well. I guess I've taken a leap of faith.
The papers submitted to the FSA are in PDF format on the member site, but I don't see an address (though it's a whole lot of pages) on there either.

Christ Ice...you're an information ninja.
