Join The FSA

The Supporters Summit 2013

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

The Football Supporters’ Federation have again joined forces with Supporters Direct in hosting a joint annual conference. The Supporters Summit will be held at The FA’s National Football Centre, St George’s Park, on Saturday 22nd June 2013.
 
The event is aimed at bringing supporters and other stakeholders together to discuss key issues for fans and the various challenges facing the national game. Alongside Swansea City FC Chairman Huw Jenkins, the event will also hear from Andy Burnham MP, former Secretary of State for Sport, and Roisin Wood, Director of anti-racism campaigners Kick it Out.
 
Malcolm Clarke, Chair of The FSF, said,  “As the supporter’s representative on the FA Council I am delighted that The FA is backing the Supporters Summit and we look forward to visiting their excellent facilities at St George’s Park in their 150th year.”

A dedicated website has been launched where people will be able to find full details of the event, including the registration process, workshop topics and accommodation and travel information. Significant demand is expected, so book your place by 6th May to benefit from the early bird discount rates. The AGMs of both organisations remain free to attend, however.

David Lampitt, Supporters Direct’s Chief Executive, said, “The Summit will provide great content and is a must for all fans as well as for stakeholders interested in understanding the fan’s view.”

Other confirmed speakers at the event include Tim Connolly (Vice President of Sales & Marketing at the Green Bay Packers), Sylvia Schenk (Senior Advisor for Sport, Transparency International); Paul Rawnsley (Director of Sport Business Group, Deloitte); and Micah Hall (Blogger: Portsmouth Fans Network).
