This year we’ve hooked up with two of the best online games around and guaranteed some fantastic prizes for FSF mini-league members in the process, including flights to New York for one of our competition winners! Best of all, they’re both entirely free to enter.

Pompey policy upsets faithful

Fans face visa deadline for Belarus

England fans have been warned to get their visa applications for Belarus as soon as possible as the Football Supporters’ Federation has learned that prices are to rise by £50.

Fans’ Parliament a success

The FSF Fans’ Parliament is over for another year, and we’re pleased to say it was a great success with hundreds of football supporters turning up to see Rt Hon Richard Caborn MP speak on his experiences as Sports Minister and the 2018 World Cup bid. This was followed by a very encouraging speech from Lord Triesman, Chairman of the FA. A

Fans’ Parliament update – Burnham ruled out but Caborn steps up

If you disagree with any of our choices please email someone else about it, cheers!
