This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.
Here at the FSF we’re big fans of Stuart Roy Clarke’s Homes of Football. As many readers will already know, Stuart’s kindly let us use his superb images in years gone by and he’s a regular presence at FSF events and awards nights.
Across four decades Stuart’s unique work has charted a changing game. Yes, there’s on-field action, but there’s a real focus on fans too. Stuart also understands the role that stadiums (and their architecture) play in our love of football. Many of them might now be housing estates or supermarkets, but Stuart’s pictures ensure they’ll never be forgotten.
Want to know more? Stuart’s kindly agreed to write a monthly blog for the FSF explaining the thinking and background stories to his best shots. If there’s a picture that’s caught your attention that you’d like to ask him about it, email the FSF.

June is Pride Month so we thought it would be the perfect time to catch up with FSA associates Pride In Football’s co-chair Rishi Madlani. Pride In Football is a network of supporter groups who actively work together to eliminate LGBT+phobia from football and ensure football is for all….
Following the collapse of the European Super League, Football Supporters Europe, the pan-European body which represents football supporters across the continent and of which the FSA is a member, have released this statement:
The idea of the European Super League is dead, at least for now, but the hard work to ensure that it can never return is only just beginning, and the first step in that process is demonstrating that there is political support for the much-needed reforms to our game.
