The Annual General Meeting of the North West and North Wales Division of the Football Supporters’ Federation will take place Wednesday 25th May (7pm start). The meeting will take place at The Orange Tree, 15 Old Market Place, Altrincham, Cheshire WA14 4DE.
- Please register your attendance with Ian Lyon via firstname.lastname@example.org. Non-members are welcome to attend although it is free to join the FSF and will only take a few minutes of your time: www.fsf.org.uk/join.
As this is the North West and North Wales Division’s AGM the election of officers (chair, deputy chair, secretary, treasurer, pyramid surveillance officer, national delegate) will take place alongside other relevant AGM business. However, the Division will also be discussing FSF campaigns and football issues such as:
- Safe Standing Campaign – The FSF’s Safe Standing Petition now has around 12,000 signatures while the FSF recently met with Sports Minister Hugh Robertson. Furthermore Don Foster MP’s Safe Standing Bill is due to be heard in Parliament while the country’s most senior civil servant has backed safe standing areas. But what can fans do on a regional level? Get along and find out, there's plenty you can do to back safe standing today.
- Goal-line technology – It seems every week brings another goal-line controversy but is new technology a must for the modern game or an unnecessary evil? Would technology support embattled officials and raise refs respect levels? Or are you a traditionalist who feels there’s no place for such gizmos in football?
