FSF statement on proposed “golden handshake”

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

FSF statement on Premier League clubs being asked for £250,000 towards £5m bonus payment for outgoing CEO Richard Scudamore.

The Football Supporters’ Federation said:

“Premier League clubs have always told fan groups that budgets are planned in advance and there’s not a surplus of cash lying around from their extremely lucrative TV deal.  

“In the meantime loyal football supporters continue to be inconvenienced by fixture changes to fit TV schedules, often losing out on travel costs or struggling to get to and from games in the first place.

“Now it appears clubs can stick their hands down the back of the sofa and find £250,000 at a moment’s notice.

“Fans strongly oppose the ‘golden handshake’ and we urge clubs not to make a decision which is hugely unpopular with supporters.”
