The FSA have partnered with the Non-League Paper to gather the views of thousands of football fans across the country on how they believe football can safely return from its COVID-19 suspension with spectators in the stands.
It’s not unusual for clubs to groundshare at non-league level. While each set of circumstances is unique, it is always distressing when a club is torn away from its local community and left with no option to play away from their traditional home.
We have teamed up with leading disability charity Level Playing Field (LPF) to help non-league clubs improve access and facilities for disabled fans. We’re delighted that the idea is being supported by both the National League, which has required all clubs to complete the disability access survey, and the Northern Premier League.
Harrogate Town FC have been named as the 2018-19 winners of the Best Away Day in non-league at the National Game Awards in association with Buildbase. The award is an extension of our ‘Away Fans Matter Campaign’, and is the second year we’ve partnered with the Non-League Paper to recognise the clubs who are the best at welcoming fans from Steps one to four of the National League.
Further to the inaugural meeting of National Game Network on 20th January 2019 a meeting report which contains details of the discussions held is available for download, along with a copy of the full meeting minutes.
This season we’ve teamed up with The Non-League Magazine to promote the role and impact supporters can have at non-league level. The FSF’s Andy Walsh tells us more about what’s in this month’s edition – a digital version is free to FSF members here…
