Fans decide on AFC
Fans interested in continuing the legacy of football in Hinckley met to discuss the issues facing them in setting up a brand new football club after the demise of Hinckley United.

Since United ceased in October 2013, a 'working group' had begun to look at options available and at a public meeting of interested fans it was voted to form a new 'community co-operative trust' with the ethos of 'one member one vote'. Every member of the community trust would have one share in the new football club and every member would have an equal vote on matters concerning the football club.

The name of the new football club was also voted on, and those interested at the meeting voted for the name Hinckley Association Football Club. There were 3 choices, the most popular suggestions from social media, being Hinckley Phoenix, Hinckley AFC and Hinckley Nomads, with Hinckley AFC receiving the overwhelming majority of the votes.
