FSA Statement: PM meeting with fan representatives on Super League

Earlier today, the chief executive of the FSA Kevin Miles, along with other fan representatives, met with the prime minister Boris Johnson and secretary of state for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Oliver Dowden. Joined by senior figures from the FA and the Premier League, the meeting was called to discuss the response to the threat of a European Super League – below is our statement on the meeting.

Kevin Miles, chief executive of the Football Supporters’ Association, said:

“The greedy owners of some of our most historic football clubs have done nothing but unite fans throughout the pyramid, players, pundits, clubs, politicians and the Government in opposition to their plans to hoard power and wealth. There must be no more appeasement of these vultures.

“Today the Football Supporters’ Association (FSA) and some of our member organisations met with the prime minister Boris Johnson and secretary of state Oliver Dowden to make clear the existential crisis facing football and the overwhelming support from fans for political action.

“The PM’s response was very positive as he committed to legislative action, if necessary, to support the football authorities. In addition he referred to yesterday’s announcement of the much-anticipated fan-led review into football governance, confirming that it would have a far-reaching remit.

“The FSA looks forward to working with the Government and all political parties in Westminster. As well as meeting the PM we have also met today with the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Football Supporters and, separately, Keir Starmer and the Labour Party.

“Supporters will do everything in our power to stop the European Super League.”
