Around one hundred Hull City fans attended a meeting this afternoon to discuss their next move to try to save the club's name. City owner Assem Allam formally applied to the FA to change the club's name to Hull Tigers.
Andy Dalton said fans who are part of campaign group 'City till we die' want a stake in the club.
Hull City fans met today to discuss their next move in the fight to keep the club's name. On Wednesday, City owner Assem Allam formally applied to the FA to change the club's name to Hull Tigers.
In November he promised not to make any changes until there had been a full consultation. After the meeting, supporters group City Till We Die protested outside the KC Stadium ahead of the game against Stoke City.
Hull City manager, Steve Bruce, says that getting results and staying in the Premier League is more important than the row over the club's name.
Hull City have formally applied to the Football Association to change the club's name to Hull Tigers from next season.
Owner Assem Allam wants to rebrand the Premier League club to appeal to a wider international audience.
The decision has prompted an angry response from supporters who are now urging fans to protest against the name change at Saturday's match against Stoke, as Fiona Dwyer reports.
Hull City fan group, 'City Till We Die', say they are "disappointed" over the Assem Allam's application to the FA to rename the club.
In a statement they said:
...When City Till We Die met with Hull City AFC owner Dr Assem Allam on 1 November, he assured us that any name change would not occur for two to three years, and that it would not go ahead without supporter consultation, or without the benefits being proven by research. No such research or consultation has taken place...
...This matter is now in the hands of the only people who have the right to make such a decision: the football authorities. On 2 December, City Till We Die supplied the FA with a timeline dossier on the name-change proposals, for their consideration.
On 4 December we met with officials of the Premier League, who told us that any such material changes to the heritage of British football should be carried out in consultation with supporters and wider stakeholders in the game...
...This issue matters for all football supporters, not just the people of Hull, and the decision the FA makes will set a very important precedent...
The fans group opposed to a name change for Hull City has accused club owner Assem Allam of bringing forward his plans and not consulting supporters.
The Barclays Premier League club revealed on Wednesday that they had applied to the Football Association to change the playing name to Hull Tigers from next season.
But the City Till We Die group has once again stressed its opposition to Allam's plans.
The campaign group revealed it had supplied the FA with a timeline dossier on Allam's proposals and also met with representatives of the Premier League to voice concerns.
Allam has already changed the company name to Hull City Tigers but he needs the permission of the FA Council to change the club's playing name.
Allam has offered to refund any of the club's season-ticket holders who are unhappy and has previously said he considers a Tigers brand to be more marketable, and the word "City" to be "lousy" and "common".
The 74-year-old Egypt-born businessman, who moved to Hull in 1968, also caused controversy earlier this month by saying of the critics: "They can die as soon as they want, as long as they leave the club for the majority who just want to watch good football."
Hull have formally applied to the Football Association to change their playing name to 'Hull Tigers' from next season.
The move, which is being fought by a group of fans, has been prompted by owner Assem Allam, who believes the new name would be more commercially successful.

We have sent a letter to the Football Association this week asking for them to consider our request to change the club's playing name from next season.
Allam has already changed the company name to Hull City Tigers but he needs the permission of the FA Council to change the club's playing name, and the "City Till We Die" protest group is opposing the plans.

Hull City's Danny Graham ended his barren run in front of goal by scoring against his old side, Swansea City.
The striker, on loan from Sunderland, had not scored since leaving Swansea.
His barren streak stretched to 30 games in all competitions, and his goal ended a run of 1,626 minutes without a league goal.
Graham's strike earned the Tigers a valuable point in their bid for Premier League survival in a 1-1 draw.
Hull City came away from Monday night's Premier League clash at Swansea with honours even in a 1-1 draw.
Hull boss, Steve Bruce, was left disappointed after Swansea defender Dwight Tiendalli used both hands to block an Alex Bruce header, and no penalty was given.
Danny Graham had earlier scored his first goal in 11 months to put the Tigers ahead against his former club, before Chico Flores deflected Jonjo Shelvey's fierce drive into the net for the equaliser; replays suggested the Spaniard had done so with the aid of an arm.
The 1-1 draw gave Hull another valuable point, but Bruce will feel it could have been more.
