Department for Culture, Media and Sport

icon fanvoiceshef10 December ~ The Department for Culture, Media and Sport’s expert working group are gathering evidence from fan groups on the current problems facing supporter ownership of clubs. They are aiming to identify the current legal, financial and insolvency barriers that prevent more fans having a share in their teams and want expert evidence from supporter clubs, as well as other sectors and industries, outlining experiences and opinions on which current rules and laws need to change. It is all with a view to support, sustain and incentivise greater community ownership of clubs. You can submit your views here, while the Football Supporters’ Federation have more information here.
