Hull hit out at 'prejudiced' FA

Hull City have criticised the Football Association’s decision to reject their proposed name change and claimed the process hasn’t been fair, Sky Sports has reported.

It is expected the FA will today confirm their opposition to Hull owner Assem Allam’s attempt to rebrand the side as Hull Tigers from next season and in a statement, the club have said the governing body made up their mind before Allam made his case.

Hull cite the FA’s discussions with the group leading the charge against the rebrand, City Till We Die, as evidence they didn’t get a fair hearing. A ballot of season ticket holders will now be held and Allam has threatened to walk away from the club if he doesn’t get his way.

“The club is disappointed with the timing of yesterday's announcement made by the FA. We feel we have been prejudiced right from the outset,” the statement began.

“The FA introduced a new policy to handle our application on the back of consultations with the City Till We Die group, and we therefore feel that our application was already pre-judged.

“This feeling has been reinforced with yesterday's announcement, as the club feels this will further prejudice the forthcoming ballot of season pass holders.

“However, this is now the time for the silent majority to come forward and support the club's aspirations. Details of the ballot will be released to season pass holders within the next 48 hours.”

Hull are currently 13th in the Premier League table following Saturday’s 2-0 defeat against 10-man Manchester City. They have won only two of their last 10 league games and are five points clear of the relegation zone.
