No to Whitehawk FC being renamed 'Brighton City FC'
This petition made change with 1,447 supporters!
While we understand that Whitehawk's owners want the best for the club, we do not feel that changing the club's name to 'Brighton City FC' is the right choice.
Not only is the current name unique, but the team's amazing FA Cup run this year offered a great amount of exposure for Whitehawk. The club is not as obscure as it's being assumed and it's not difficult for people to find out the information they need online. Even if a person was to know the club was in Brighton, they'd still have to find out where the ground is, which would involve sifting through a load of Albion information.
Not only is the Whitehawk name unique, but it has 70 years of history and links to the surrounding community.
There has been no consultation with fans, while there's been no more information or explanation than a single sentence on the website. The people who come to Whitehawk each weekend are just as dedicated and supportive as the owners, and they deserve more communication than what's been offered so far.
This petition is to show opposition to the name change and to keep Whitehawk FC as Whitehawk FC.
