Supporters Respond to Blatter Statement

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

The Football Supporters’ Federation has vowed to step up its NO TO GAM£ 39 – A MATCH TOO FAR! Campaign following FIFA President Sepp Blatter’s opposition to the Premier League’s proposal.

In statement issued today (Fri 15/2/08) the FSF said:

Whilst Herr Blatter’s statement is welcome, this doesn’t mean the danger of the Premier League pressing ahead has passed. Supporters need to keep the pressure up. We confirm that we’ll be proceeding with next week’s campaign meetings around England.

FSF Chair Malcolm Clarke said, “We might have gone one up ten minutes into the game, but there’s still a long way to go. We’ll be fighting right to the final whistle. We can’t afford to be complacent or think this proposal is off the table.”
