Who should the Football League make its official charity? Have your say!

We all know there’s an altruistic streak running through football fans – who else in society gives up so much of their free time and money to cheering on others after all! Here at the FSF we believe doing your bit is important, we get many requests every year to donate or give time and money to various charities but unfortunately there’s not always enough hours in the day to help everyone.

So as an organisation, with guidance from our National Council and individual members, we choose a nominated charity every year – this year it’s the Homeless World Cup.

The Football League has chosen to take a similar course of action and would like you to help them decide which charity they should select as their official charity partner for 2009/10.

Listed below are 5 charities for you to choose from – you can read through details of each charity and vote by clicking this link to the Football League’s website.

  • Care of Police Survivors (COPS)
  • Everyman
  • Help For Heroes
  • Marie Curie Cancer Care
  • The Bobby Moore Fund

Voting closes on Wednesday September 9th. From the top two as voted by fans, the Football League Board will select the winner and announce the result on Friday September 11th.
