Want to help change football? Fans’ Parliament 2010 will take place at Wembley Stadium on Saturday July 24th.
The event sees supporters from across England and Wales put their heads together to see how we can influence the game for the better. The fan movement is growing stronger by the day – so get involved and have your say.
Fans’ Parliament is absolutely free, open to all, and helps set the FSF’s policy and campaigns focus for the coming year. The event runs all day and there’ll be social activities in the evening. If you’re not already a member join the FSF for free today and we’ll keep you up-to-date with all the latest Fans’ Parliament info.
Speakers will include:
- Declan Hill author of The Fix: Soccer and Organized Crime the most explosive story of sports corruption in a generation. Hill is a fantastic speaker and his central accusation, that some of the most high-profile games in world football may have been fixed cuts to the very soul of our game. Do not miss out. “This book explains the fight between good and evil that exists in international football today” Emmanuel Petit.
- Liberty director Shami Chakrabarti will lead our workshop on policing and stewarding, the issue which causes more complaints to the FSF than any other. Our work with Liberty lead to dozens of Stoke fans receiving almost £200,000 in compensation for Greater Manchester Police’s use of Section 27.
- Representatives from the Premier League, Football League, and FA will meet up with fans to debate club debts and governance, lack of safe standing, and England’s 2018 World Cup bid at our workshops.
Any FSF member is entitled to stand for election to our National Council or propose a motion for debate at Fans’ Parliament, although the deadline for 2010 nominations and motions has now passed.
However, you don’t have to wait until 2011 to have your say. Members should still turn up to vote in our elections and on motions. This is how we democratically set our campaigns agenda for the upcoming year – so if you disagree with anything we do speak up and get involved!
