Jacqui Forster Memorial Award 2024: Nominations open
Posted on 2nd February 2024
The Jacqui Forster Memorial Award, an award that celebrates women who do great things for the supporter movement, has returned for 2024 – and nominations are now open.
Jacqui Forster worked for Supporters Direct (SD) one of the FSA predecessors from 2003 until 2018, when she sadly passed away, following a long battle with cancer. SD, along with the Football Supporters’ Federation, was one of the forerunner organisations which eventually became the Football Supporters’ Association.
“Jacqui was passionate and dedicated,” said Nicola Cave, FSA training and governance manager. “She was involved in almost every one of the 200 supporters’ trusts at some stage of their development.
“Alongside her professionalism was a personality and warmth that will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by all in the movement.”
This annual award was designed to celebrate and recognise women like Jacqui who give their spare time to promote the values and principles of the supporter trust movement.
You can submit a nomination via this form. Nominations close on Friday 16th February.
The winner will be selected by a panel of FSA National Council members and announced on International Women’s Day, 8th March.
