Bring Ronaldo Home - Crowd Funding Campaign

Share Article

A group of enthusiastic Manchester United football supporters have developed an innovative viral campaign called "Bring Ronaldo Home" that would allow the club's reported 659 million fans around the world to make a pledge via a unique crowd-funding website to buy Cristiano Ronaldo back to the club.

This is a perfect opportunity for fans not just to voice their opinions but to help bring it about - bringing Ronaldo home to The Old Trafford – by pledging to buy his shirt!

There has been much media speculation about potential comings and goings at Manchester United fuelled by the sudden resignation of Sir Alex Ferguson.

Will Cristiano Ronaldo stay at Real Madrid? Will he go to PSG? Will he return to Old Trafford?

Before he resigned, Sir Alex Ferguson had said he’d like to have Ronaldo back. Ronaldo has stated he wants to return.

Now, a small group of enthusiastic football supporters has developed an innovative viral campaign that would allow Manchester United fans around the world have their say.

A spokesperson for http://www.BringRonaldoHome.org said: “We have been inspired by the loyalty and dedication of Manchester United fans. To be a 'true' fan requires the 'living' experience of football. It is not about being a mere spectator; it is about being a participant. We wanted to give fans an opportunity to be involved.

“The Internet is now a significant resource in the world of football. Fans spend increasing amounts of their time on football websites accessing up-to-the-minute information about events specific to their team and discussing issues on blogs.

“What we have done is develop a construct, based on crowd funding principles, which will tap into this incredible global fan support that Manchester United has - to help deliver the goods – to give the fans an opportunity for their voice to deliver an action.”

Our goal is to bring Manchester United fans together behind one outcome: Cristiano Ronaldo returning back to Old Trafford.

It has been a time-constrained programme: the inspiration for this idea, to use crowd-funding model to unite fans behind the goal was just a few weeks ago.

We recognised that we only had a short window of opportunity – the transfer season: which traditionally starts after the football season has ended and finishes at the end of August.

We commenced a soft launch last week, where Fans were invited, via Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook, to visit the central website, http://www.BringRonaldoHome.org where they were invited to make a £10 pledge, conditional on Manchester United signing Ronaldo.

Proceeds will be conditionally provided to Manchester United to enable them to use the fan-sourced funds to secure Ronaldo’s transfer. Should Manchester United succeed – then each pledger will be asked to pay the balance of the shirt price to receive their Ronaldo Manchester United shirt – in his new strip. Should Manchester United fail – pledge funds will be returned.

This is a perfect opportunity for fans not just to voice their opinions but to help bring it about - bringing Ronaldo home to The Old Trafford – by pledging to buy his shirt!
