The Football League are inviting fans across the country to take part in its third online supporters consultation, giving supporters the opportunity to influence the future of professional football.
The Football League Supporters Survey 2010 lets fans have their say on a range of important issues that are relevant to the future of the game. The survey covers controversial subjects such as the introduction of goal line technology, sin bins and salary caps to refereeing standards, diving and football on television.
Fans are also invited to give their views about the club they support with a range of topics up for discussion including ticketing, stewarding, communication with supporters and whether they feel valued by their club.
The 2010 Survey follows on from previous supporter consultations in 2006 and 2008, both of which saw more than 40,000 fans contribute their views.
Football League chairman Lord Mawhinney said at the launch of the 2010 survey;
“This is the opportunity for fans to tell us their views on the football they watch.The opinions expressed by supporters in our two previous surveys contributed to our thinking as we developed our Regulations on Agents, our new Home Grown Players rule and our smoke-free policy at matches. They have also given clubs a better understanding of what their fans like and dislike about watching football, which has helped The League identify best practice at club level and improve the supporter experience. I hope fans to take this opportunity to make a difference, once again.”
