A new exhibition in Liverpool is running for the next few days and should be of interest to our North West members. Journalist Stephanie Powers’ work is on show at Liverpool’s View 2 gallery in Mathew Street, Liverpool until Sunday, May 3rd.

The Fan Power? exhibition is free to enter and Stephanie’s 20 photos celebrate the place of the fan in the modern era while raising serious questions about fan power in today’s game.

The work is very heavily focused around Liverpool FC – she first became interested in football after moving to Liverpool in November 2007 – but much of what Stephanie seems to be looking at is core to the Football Supporters’ Federation anyway.

Increased commercialisation, all-seater stadiums, ticket prices, and the increasing average age of those attending live games (not that we’re ageist but the younger fan is being priced out) all get a mention in the press release so we’re guessing FSF members in the area might like to have a peek.

The more cultured among you should get your hands on a copy of tfs 015 as well, if you haven’t already. tfs is sent to all FSF members (join here) and last month’s edition had a football as art theme throughout – we really are ahead of the game. You can read (or buy) the online versions of tfs from this link.
