Championship

Hull City's return to the Championship after two seasons in the Premier League.

August–December

A reported block on player transfers into the club, set in place by the Hull City board on 28 July 2010 until transfers out substantially reduce the £39 million-per-year wage bill, initially cast doubt on the early efforts of new manager Nigel Pearson to build a squad capable of an immediate return to the Premier League;[123] nevertheless, Pearson has since brought several transfers and loans into the club in his bid to strengthen the squad for the season's comapaign.[33][7] One of those efforts yielded quick results on the season's opening day, as loanee John Bostock from Tottenham Hotspur supplied the first of two winning goals over Swansea City. Team captain Ian Ashbee, returning from injury that kept him sidelined much of the preceding season, supplied the second.[71]

After weeks of speculation about a local business man looking to be interested in investing in Hull City, it was confirmed on 18 October 2010 that Assem Allam, along with his son Ehab had entered negotiations with Hull City owner and chairman, Russell Bartlett. Allam confirmed at the time that he felt the need to pay back to the area, and that Hull City were important to the area.[124] On 10 November 2010, it was confirmed by the Allams that a deal had been agreed for a controlling interesting in the club, and that the Allams would assume control once the relevant requirements had been met.[125]

Whilst it was originally reported that that Allam intended to only purchase a majority shareholding in the club, and would continue to work with Russell Bartlett, a protracted period of due diligence indicated that the investment required would be substantially higher than originally planned; this resulted in a move to completely seize control of the club.[126] The deal was formally completed at 10.45 pm on 16 December 2010, with the club exchanging hands for the nominal fee of £1, but with Allam, and his son, Ehab committing to invest £30 million, as well as providing assurances for a further £10 million.[127][128]

Following the takeover, it was confirmed on the official club website that Assem Allam would take up the roll of chairman at the club.[129]

January–June

On Saturday 12 March 2011, Hull set a new record for the club, with 14 away matches unbeaten, breaking a record stretching back over 50 years.[107]
