ArabTRUST, together with the Federation of Dundee United Supporters’ Clubs and the Dundee United Business Club, have kicked off the fundraising required to redevelop the Gussie Park complex, home of United’s Youth Development squads.
The essential upgrading is a key step in supporting the achievement of Elite Youth Status for the club.
The three fans’ groups have set themselves a target of £100,000 towards this project and a fantastic start to the campaign has raised £25,000 to date.
A further range of opportunities are now being launched to allow you to support the project.
The 1909 Club
The 1909 Club offers the chance to contribute from only £5. This will buy you a virtual square of the resurfaced Gussie Park and put you in a draw to win a free season ticket for 2013/14.
Your name will be allocated against a square, which will be shown via an online ‘pitch’ held on the United and ArabTRUST websites.
Tickets will be available from our Tannadice Tangerine Trading Posts, the ArabTRUST Webshop and Groucho's from this weekend.
The Youth Patron Scheme
The Youth Patron Scheme has two tiers, Centenary Silver and Executive, which are priced at £250 and £1000 respectively.
You get a fantastic range of benefits for your investment, as well as knowing that you are helping to put in place the facilities to foster the next crop of United’s talent.
Your support will be highlighted for posterity with your name added to the United Youth Patron Board, which will be situated within the refurbished dressing room complex at Gussie Park.
More details of the benefits available with the Youth Patron scheme are noted below.

The 1909 Club and Youth Patron Scheme are a great opportunity for all supporters to help put in place the infrastructure to develop the United Youth Development squads for years to come.
This is your chance to help produce the next Christian Dailly, David Hannah, Steven Thompson, Mark Wilson or David Goodwillie, all who benefited from the use of Gussie Park in their development before securing substantial transfer income for United.
