The Football Supporters’ Federation is calling on football fans and the grassroots community to unite and call on the Premier League to share more of its wealth to support the game.
In response to the Premier League’s new £5.136bn TV deal – as featured on Club Website last month – the Federation is calling on top flights to bring down ticket prices and support lower league and grassroots football.
Five billion pounds. Even in the crazy world of modern football finance, the Premier League’s latest TV deal left jaws wide open across the game.
Even Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore said he was “surprised” at the size of the deal – the second largest in global sport, behind only the NFL – which will take the top English clubs’ revenues to a whole new level.
Nominations are now open for the 2015 Community Awards across the UK, as each of the four home nation FAs seek to recognise the game’s unsung heroes.
The Community Awards, run in association with McDonald’s, recognise the grassroots football clubs and volunteers that dedicate their free time to ensure young players can enjoy the game.
Sports England has launched Club Matters – a free and practical toolkit to help those involved with running a grassroots club.
Whether you’re a club chair writing a plan to attract new members, a treasurer managing those all-important club finances or a captain asking existing club members what they want, Club Matters can help clubs to thrive.
