The FSF’s North West Division will relaunch in Blackpool on Saturday 12th November 2016 to look at the predicament of some of the region’s clubs, asking the question, what can fans do?

This meeting is open to fans of all clubs, FSF member or not… although you should join anyway!

From the ongoing saga that is the Oystons and Blackpool, to Bolton Wanderers’ brush with administration, to the Venky’s at Blackburn Rovers, and more – many proud NW clubs are going through tough times.

The FSF is very pleased to say that Blackpool Supporters Trust is hosting this event giving fans across the region a chance to share their experiences, concerns, and ideas for campaigning together to improve football governance.

“With more money flowing into the higher echelons of the professional game than ever before and seemingly more and more ‘clubs in crisis’ there needs to be fundamental change in how our sport is governed,” says Blackpool Supporters Trust.

FSF National Council members will also be in attendance to give updates on other areas of our work – you can find out about more of the FSF’s work in the Annual Review 2015/16.
