Supporting football  - What you can do

What you can do

Write to the Task Force Football 2015  
You need to highlight what you see as the problems and what you want done about them, and relate these to the Task Force remit:
Relate it to your experience. In particular you should say why you or your group is concerned that action is taken on these issues. For example, if ticket prices or allocations are a problem, give some very brief details; if your club is suffering because of the way TV money is redistributed - give brief details. However, also highlight that your concern is not just motivated by self interest but also for the good of the game as a whole.
If your organisation has given evidence to the Task Force Football 2015 , say so and say what you argued for.
The core concerns need to be raised:
i) meaningful fan role in decision making at every level in the game (elected fan on board, elected fan at FA council etc.);
ii) an end to the spiralling rise in ticket prices, not to go up ahead of the rate of inflation;
iii) restrictions on role of PLCs, a block to media companies owning significant interests in clubs, controls over ‘fit and proper’ people owning clubs, encourage supporter ownership;
iv) better redistribution of wealth;
v) These need enforcement - if the FA and Premier League won't or can't then the call must be for the Government to act to protect the national game by setting up a an independent and powerful football regulator
Please note:
·        Say who you are
·        Keep it simple, firm and to the point
·        Ask them to reply to you outlining their views and what they will do.
