Below is a joint statement from the Football Supporters’ Federation and Supporters Direct following the decisions taken by their respective members last weekend:

On July 28th at their respective AGM’s both the SD & FSF members voted in favour of a merger of the organisations. The Chairs, CEO’s & board members of each organisation are committed to delivering the merger and creating a modern, effective and powerful single voice for football fans nationwide. Both SD and the FSF will now nominate two current board members each to join the Chairs and CEO’s on an interim board that will oversee the creation of the new organisation.

Further, the two CEO’s will begin working together on an operational plan for the merger process, along with holding initial discussions with the Fans Fund regarding our next three year funding cycle. We will endeavour to communicate with members regularly to provide updates of the ongoing work.
