A website aimed at recruiting 50,000 fans to take over a football club has attracted over 13,000 members in the fortnight since its launch.
MyFootballClub aims to take control of a club
MyFootballClub wants people to pay £35 in a bid to raise £1.4m to buy a team, with each member an equal partner.
Members will have a vote on transfers, player selection and all major decisions affecting the club.
"We're over a quarter of the way there. It has been an amazing response," creator Will Brooks told BBC Sport.

Brooks added: "We can't wait to get on with the business of buying a club for the members.
"We will be instructing an international law firm, with specific football expertise, to oversee this.
"We have had offers from several television companies to tell the MyFootballClub story but we have put these on hold because this is exactly the kind of decision the members will make."
A former football journalist, Brooks, 36, now works as a copywriter but has spent the last two years developing the website idea.
"I have met several club owners and ex-managing directors of Championship and Premiership clubs, all of whom were captivated by the concept and believed it to be workable," said Brooks, who is a Fulham supporter.
Over the last few years a number of Premiership clubs - Manchester United, Aston Villa and Liverpool - have been the subject of corporate takeovers and Brooks hopes his scheme will allow fans greater participation in the running of a club.
"I've always had the notion of a group of fans putting money into a club and not taking it out. It is a potent force for good as most owners look at clubs as a way of making money."
The website has a list of 15 clubs that supporters want to buy, with Leeds United, who have been relegated to League One, currently top of the list.
