The club was kicked out of the Football League in August 2019 after a failed takeover attempt.

However, a society of supporters came together to buy both the club and its iconic ground.

The group of fans also now owns all the memorabilia of the club.

Bury announced the news on its official website with a statement that read: “After the Bury Football Club Supporters’ Society successfully rallied to purchase Gigg Lane, and the intellectual property, history and memories of Bury Football Club no longer being administered, the Shakers are finally back after their tragic expulsion from the English Football League in 2019.

“With the help of generous benefactors, the club is now in safe hands. Using the successful German model of 51:49 ownership, we (the Supporters’ Society) form the 51% majority while the benefactors, the fans of Bury themselves, are the 49%.

“The club and stadium can never fall into our hands again and we are working hard to bring elite men’s football back to the city through negotiations with the FA.

“Our goal is to come back bigger and stronger than ever, so we’ve made plans to make Gigg Lane a community hub for the city seven days a week.”

The club have also asked supporters to help develop Gigg Lane.


Fans want the pitch to become “more than before”.

Gigg Lane was recently used as a storage facility for donations to the Ukraine crisis.

But there are now plans to develop a community gymnasium on the premises as well as an office, clinic and artificial playing surface.
