The FA can confirm its Membership Committee met on Wednesday [12 March] and has made a unanimous recommendation to The FA Council to reject Hull City’s request to change their playing name to Hull Tigers from next season.

The recommendation, which came after consultation with stakeholders within and outside of the game, will be discussed and voted upon at a full FA Council meeting on 9 April 2014.

Hull City are able to make a further submission to The FA Council in view of the written reasons, which they have received, before the 9 April meeting.

A final decision will be made at that meeting. As such, The FA will be making no further comment at this time.
