Chance for fan groups to 'Meet the Met'

The Football Supporters' Federation has arranged 'Meet the Met' which is a chance for fans' groups to discuss the policing of football at London clubs.

The Met are very keen on dialogue and engagement with fans and this is a great opportunity for representatives from supporters' groups and fanzines to put questions to those who have so much influence in shaping matchdays. This won't be a top-heavy policing meeting with fans being talked "at" - it's intended to be a two-way dialogue.

There'll be a Chief Superintendent, a Superintendent, one or two match commanders and officers from the Central Football Unit in attendance, so it is an excellent opportunity to share your experiences and thoughts. 

  • When? Thursday 23rd October 2014, 6pm-8pm
  • Where? New Scotland Yard, 8-10 Broadway, London SW1H 0BG
  • Register: Due to limited space this invitation is first come, first served. The meeting is not confined to London-based groups, these issues affect travelling fans too. If the meeting is over-subscribed, we will look to set up more. Email

Please note that fans who haven't registered will not be able to attend as there are very strict security prodecures at New Scotland Yard, for obvious reasons.
