What do fans want from a return in the women’s game?

The FSA are gathering the views of fans of women’s football across the country on how they believe football can safely return from its COVID-19 suspension with spectators in the stands. 

The survey, which will run until 7th August, will help form a picture of the attitudes of spectators to a restart in the top four leagues of the women’s game, and allow clubs and league administrators to plan with more certainty ahead of a resumption of matches in 2020.

Our survey will represent the biggest canvassing of opinions across the game since the declaration of the health emergency in March, and among other things will find out when supporters intend on returning, and what safety checks they would like to see at their club.

FSA women’s football lead Deborah Dilworth said “It’s of the utmost importance that football supporters are heard in any discussions about the restart of football.

“We want to gather the most accurate view of supporter opinion in the women’s game and feed that back to the FA, so we urge everyone to complete the survey and share it among their fellow fans”.
