Hull City Owner Vows to Quit If FA Rejects Tigers Name Change: Daily Soccer Report

Hull City owner Assem Allam has vowed to quit if The FA rejects his request to change of his football club from Hull City AFC to Hull Tigers.

Some supporters may be wishing that Allam follows through on his promise given the opposition not only from Hull City supporters but from the soccer fans around the world who support the campaign by City Till I Die to leave the club name intact.

“No one on earth is allowed to question my business decisions,” said Allam in an interview with Sky Sports. See the complete interview below.

This is another low-ball tactic by Allam to deliver an ultimatum to The FA and club supporters to have the name change passed, or he’ll walk away. If he does go, I’m sure there’ll be plenty of other investors lining up to buy the club and keep the club’s name instead of changing it for silly reasons.

Don’t forget that this is the same man who suggested that Manchester City change their name to Manchester Hunter. Seriously.
