Supporters Summit 2013

Supporters Summit 2013 —-

Saturday 22 June —-  at the England Training Camp, St. George’s Park, Needwood, Burton-Upon-Trent, DE13 9PD

The Supporters Summit is a joint event by Supporters Direct and the Football Supporters Federation aimed at bringing supporters together to discuss the challenging issues facing the industry.


Supporters     The Supporters Summit 2013 is for supporters of football, Rugby League, and other spectator sports clubs, whether individuals or part of supporters’ organisations. It is a great place to network with established supporters’ groups and learn more about how clubs are run, and about how the world of football works.

Football stakeholders (clubs, leagues, associations)        The Summit will provide a great window on fan issues as well as providing an opportunity to develop relationships between fans and the game’s other stakeholders.  From Supporter Liaison Officers at clubs, to the regulators of the game’s finances, or anywhere in between, if supporters are relevant for your work, then you should be here.

Other organizations   If your organisation is interested in engaging with fans, then this is the place to come – the largest and most significant gathering of influential fans and supporter groups in the UK.

We have an exciting, informative and engaging day planned, and we expect to announce more speakers in the coming weeks, with one or two other special guests in the pipeline. The event is aimed at bringing supporters and other stakeholders together to discuss key issues for fans and the various challenges facing the national game. Alongside Swansea City FC Chairman Huw Jenkins, and Tim Connolly, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at the Green Bay Packers, the event will also hear from: Andy Burnham MP (former Secretary of State for Sport & current Shadow Health Secretary & former SD Chair); Sylvia Schenk (Senior Advisor for Sport, Transparency International); Paul Rawnsley (Director of Sport Business Group, Deloitte); Micah Hall (Blogger: Portsmouth Fans Network); Roisin Wood (Director, Kick It Out).

EVENT INFORMATION      Following an opening plenary with keynote speakers, there will be a comprehensive set of workshops with expert panels discussing football finance, fan engagement, ticket pricing, women in football, discrimination, financial sustainability, transparency, asset protection and supporter ownership. To close the day there will be a plenary Q&A session with an expert panel.

FREE TOUR       Delegates will also get the opportunity to have a free guided tour of the brand new St. Georges Park facility, pitches and performances suites. Further details will be available on the day and are subject to availability.
