Networks

The FSA’s structure features a National Council which embeds within it fan representatives from clubs at Premier League, Championship, League One and League Two, and National Game (non-league) level. Six individual fans are also elected while community-owned clubs have their own specially-assigned representatives as does Fans for Diversity.

These fan representatives are selected by their own Networks which meet four times per season. All networks are entitled to three elected representatives, with the responsibility with those networks to fill the positions. Networks can set their own campaign priorities.

Individual members are entitled to attend the Network meetings along with associate and affiliate members. If your supporter group would like to find out more about FSA Networks please email info@thefsa.org.uk (subject header “Network meetings”) and we’ll pass your email onto the relevant network manager.

The Network representatives attend FSA National Council meetings which also includes the FSA chair and vice chair who are elected at our Annual General Meeting.

  • Chair – Malcolm Clarke
  • Vice chair – Tom Greatrex

FSA and Sports Ground Safety Authority team up to promote fan engagement

The Football Supporters’ Association and the Sports Ground Safety Authority (SGSA) have teamed up to promote the importance of Safety Advisory Group (SAG) engagement with fans.

A little understanding goes a long way

At the FSA we’re keen to promote the best practice when it comes to clubs talking to their supporters, as the benefits of engaging with fans are obvious – at least to us. One tool that’s become increasingly common in formalising those discussions is the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

West Ham end controversial blockchain partnership

West Ham United have ended their deal with Socios.com – a digital platform that uses blockchain to provide paid-for supporter engagement.

Hull City ban journalists for “negative coverage”

While Hull City’s fans might have expected the club leadership’s entire focus to be on the battle for Championship survival they have instead turned their attention to the media – banning local journalists and hitting out at The Athletic for “misleading gossip”.
