City Fans United, the supporters group which owns Chester FC, has backed calls for community-owned sports clubs to receive tax breaks.
A new report from Supporters Direct argues introducing tax breaks for clubs such as Chester would have a significant net benefit on society.
The Blues have been working with Supporters Direct for over six months and helped them launch the report at Parliament on Monday.
The proposal recommends creating a new tax status for democratically owned clubs that meet strict criteria, including reinvesting surpluses and protecting assets for community use.
Clubs would benefit from Gift Aid on donations, receive 80% rate relief and have exemption from Corporation Tax.
If this were to happen the Blues would, on average, have a net benefit of £33,000 a season.
The report measured the volunteering value and capital investment at six fan-owned clubs, including AFC Telford United and FC United of Manchester, and found the gross annual average benefit per club through volunteering value is £126,630 and the gross annual average benefit through capital investment per club is £168,383 - or £295,013 combined.
CFU director Neil Bellis has been working with Supporters Direct on the report and went to London for the launch
He said: "Supporters Direct have shown that if clubs like ours were to receive these tax breaks there would be a significant public benefit.
"The proposed tax changes would be cost effective for the treasury as it would enable community owned clubs to be more sustainable and, in turn, increase the investment into their communities.
"Chester FC are fully behind these proposals and I’ve been delighted with the positive reaction the proposals have received when speaking to MPs in our area about them.
"It is also important to remember that these proposals do not just apply for football but could have benefits in other sports as well."
If the proposals are adopted, Supporters Direct believe it would be a landmark in the development of democratic ownership of sport in this country and make a step change that will help community owned clubs overcome many of the barriers they face.
The report was launched at a briefing in Westminster, which brought together MPs, leading sports bodies and sports clubs.
The proposal will also be addressed by the Government's Expert Working Group on Football Ownership and Engagement which will be published in January 2016.
James Mathie from Supporters Direct said: "With the right model, sports clubs can be central hubs of delivering benefits in their community – and community ownership provides added value that other forms of ownership cannot.
"We believe it’s time to help clubs that embrace democratic ownership, binding community benefit functions, and protect sports assets."
