Free Lionesses launch survey on international matchgoing experience

The Free Lionesses have launched a survey which aims to improve match attendance at future international fixtures by collating meaningful data on the current fan experience.

Fans in the women’s game face multiple challenges when traveling to watch their team play, from late fixture notice, confusing ticketing availability, difficult to reach and poorly equipped stadiums, lack of support when issues arise and certainty of security and safety measures.

In order to help improve this situation, the FSA are going to monitor conditions for supporters travelling away for both the English and Welsh women’s national teams, as well as data on travelling fans for the Republic of Ireland which we will share with the Ireland Women’s Supporters Club.

Travelling supporters of England, Wales or Republic of Ireland women are invited to complete the survey after every international away match.

The survey covers travel arrangements, ticket prices, allocation, catering, and so on. By completing the survey, you will allow Free Lionesses to collect hard, reliable data which will inform our future policy and allow us to work with the football authorities and venues on improving supporter experience.

If you’ve travelled abroad to watch England, Wales or the Republic of Ireland in international action, please complete the survey here.
