Major broadcaster continues dialogue with supporters

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

Supporter representatives from a number of top-flight clubs met with executives from Sky Sports recently to continue talks on the impact of fixture changes.

In November, representatives of the Chelsea Supporters’ Trust, Spirit of Shankly, Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust and the FSF met with senior executives from Sky Sports to discuss the impact of the rescheduling of Premier League matches for broadcast on match going fans, particularly away supporters – ¬†and a further meeting was held at the end of last month (February 22nd).

The meetings emerged as an area of work from the “structured engagement” between the Premier League and supporters from organisations across the country, under the auspices of the FSF.
