With Fans’ Parliament now only a few weeks away, we are delighted to announce two very special guests will be joining us at the Emirates Stadium.

We will be welcoming both The Rt Hon Andy Burnham MP, Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport and Lord Triesman, chairman of the Football Association. To get two such high-profile and influential speakers is a great coup for the FSF and we’re expecting a very healthy turnout.

So if you are interested in coming read on – it’s FREE so get registered now!

The FSF’s Fans’ Parliament will be in session at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday 5th July from 10am until 5.30pm. There’ll be debates and seminar sessions on some of the most important and topical issues, like rising ticket prices, competition and ‘the big four’, and Safe Standing alongside debates on what role technology should play in the laws of our game. And much, much more…

In short, this is a fantastic opportunity to get your views across to people who really can make changes… and have a bit of banter with your fellow fans, of course.
