FSF North West to meet this Thursday in Manchester

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

If you’re based in the North West and fancy getting along to see what the FSF’s all about, now’s your chance. The division are due to meet this Thursday (November 26th, 7.00pm) in Manchester’s Waldorf Pub (12 Gore Street, Piccadilly, M1 3AQ – click here for directions).

The venue is five minutes walking distance from Piccadilly and for those travelling by car there is a NCP car park opposite the pub. The NCP charges although on-street parking is normally free, if it’s available.

It’s an especially topical meeting as it’s recently been announced that the National Football Museum will be moving from Manchester to Preston. The move, which trustees said had to be made to secure the Museum’s financial future, was opposed by Preston Council but what do fans in the North West’s think?

Other items on the agenda include the upcoming World Cup as the division asks is football hooliganism and violence on the increase or are police over reacting in light of the upcoming World Cup? Speaking of scrapping, members will also be discussing the upcoming transfer window and ask whether that should be scrapped too.

If you think there’s anything obvious we’ve missed from the agenda please email [email protected] or call 08702 777 777. You can also see the the minutes of the last North West meeting here.
