Watson’s Point Of Blue
Blues Trust is pleased to reproduce this article “Protests, The Fan Led Review & The Blues Trust” by Mark Watson from “We Are Birmingham”. Mark has given his consent for the Trust to do so.
The Trust was delighted that Mark was able to attend a zoom meeting we held with representatives from different Blues supporter groups on 17 March. It was the first meeting of its kind, and several supporter groups were present.
As Mark explains, the purpose of the meeting was to discuss the Fan Led Review (FLR). And, in particular, the potential changes that are expected for the way football clubs are run and their engagement with fans if the recommendations in the Review are approved by Parliament.
Our club is fortunate to have so many different and diverse supporter groups. Each makes an important contribution, and the Trust supports their continued success and independence. But the Trust also believes, strongly, that where opportunities for collaboration exist they should be taken. Particularly so if the voice of Blues supporters is to be as loud and as influential as it can be. And the need for close cooperation will certainly become important if some of the anticipated changes coming down the line do indeed materialise.
Further meetings will be held in the coming months, and we hope more supporter groups will be represented. If you are involved with a Blues supporter group that was not at the meeting and you are interested in joining the discussion, please let us know by contacting email@example.com
