Football supporters came together to protest against the game’s most unpopular owners last week in Blackpool – and you can now watch our video from the event.

The day of action took place on the same day that Blackpool played Leyton Orient at Bloomfield Road, a repeat of November’s fixture when supporters of both sides protested together at Brisbane Road.

Thousands of fans took part in the demonstrations along Blackpool seafront, with hundreds attending the later Blackpool XI vs Fans for Diversity XI alternative fixture.

FSF chief executive Kevin Miles said: “It’s a celebration of what football means to us, while making the point about what football shouldn’t be to unscrupulous owners.”
