Supporters’ views wanted on league restructure

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

Today we’ve launched a new survey to gather the views of football supporters on the Whole Game Solution – a raft of proposals that could bring significant change to the English game.

This season, the EFL will be consulting its 72 clubs on a range of proposals that affect the structure of the bottom three divisions as well as the English football calendar – including regionalising of the bottom two divisions, creating an extra division, a winter break and moving two rounds of the FA Cup.

Last month, the clubs ruled out two of the more controversial elements of the original proposals – blocking the entrance of Premier League “B-teams” and Scottish teams into any restructured competition. League One and Two will also play through any winter break should it get the go-ahead.

The FSF will lead a delegation of fans meeting the EFL next month and the Whole Game Solution will be top of the agenda.

We want to gather your thoughts on the Whole Game Solution and the other issues it raises in order to take the views of genuine supporters to the EFL.

We will also be working with our affiliated and associated supporter organisations across the country to gather data from their memberships.

So make sure you have your say – it’ll only take you a couple of minutes to complete. Survey closes Friday 21st October.
