Rights and responsibilities: Is it time for football fans to take a seat at the table?

October 2, 2012


This session will deal with the very live issues of if and how supporters’ need to be involved in the governance of football clubs. What support is required to make supporters capable of providing value to a club’s decision making processes? Is a progressive pathway of increasing engagement the best model?

  • Tom Greatrex MP Shadow energy minister and founder, Fulham Football Supporters’ Trust
  • David Lampitt Chief executive, Supporters Direct
  • Alison McGovern MP (chair) Wirral South

Supporters Direct
is a community benefit society, owned by its members, and represents more than 170 supporters’ trusts across British sport which have a combined membership of more than 300,000 people. Supporters Direct aims to create the conditions in which supporters can secure influence and ownership of sports clubs.

The event will take place at Progress’ main conference venue this year, Peter House, Oxford Street, Manchester, M1 5AN on Tuesday 2 October, between 7.30pm and 8.45pm. The venue is located just outside the secure zone, so guests do not need a conference pass to attend this event.
