It's been a football club often in the headlines over recent months and today there was a new twist in the story of Blackpool FC.
The Supporters Trust have made a £23 million offer to buy it from the owners, the Oyston family.
The Trust describes the bid as serious and substantive, although there's been no response from the club itself.
Ralph Blunsom reports.
The Blackpool Supporters' Trust has made a bid to take over the club. The bid is worth £23 million and includes clearing club debts and paying off loans. It also includes a payment to the club owners, the Oyston family. The bid was formally presented to the club at 10:30 this morning.
Blackpool fans will make a move to buy the football club today. They're unhappy at the way the club is currently being run by the Oyston family.
It's been a turbulent few months for the relegated club, the manager Lee Clarke quit after they went down to League One. The fans have protested a number of times and even invaded the pitch on the final game of the season to show their disdain for the owners.
Last month Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston was banned from all football activity for six weeks and fined £40,000 for sending abusive texts to a fan.
Today the Blackpool Supporters' Trust will deliver a bid to the club and hold a press conference later this morning.
Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston has been banned from all football activity for six weeks and fined £40,000 for sending abusive texts to a fan.
Oyston also labelled supporter Steve Smith an intellectual cripple during a frank text message exchange.
An inquiry was launched in December but Oyston denied the charge and challenged it as 'unlawful', claiming the texts were private.
