Souths fans vote ?YES?

The members of the South Sydney Football club today upheld an offer from Peter Holmes a Court and Russell Crowe to purchase 75% of the club for $3m.

The "YES" vote received 75.8% support from members.

The bid is designed to enable Holmes a Court and Crowe to manage the club under their own steam and control the board of directors whilst protecting the club?s history, colours, emblem and location.

Some 4,500 fans participated in the vote with several thousand fans converging on Telstra Stadium where the count was taken and votes collated. It brings to an end a bitter battle for the club whose poor form on the field has been mirrored by mismanagement off it for over 15 years.
