Whose game is it? Football governance through the eyes of the supporters [Paper #1: What is wrong with football?]

The first paper in the FREE policy series discusses supporters’ opinions on football governance and asks the fundamental questions that should form the basis of any policy proposals or recommendations for supporter involvement: What do supporters actually think about current football governance? Any answers can then begin to form a platform upon which to build proposals for increased supporter involvement, as it will reflect their own concerns and insights rather than being based on assumptions. If supporters are to be more involved in the running of the game – and receive a real say rather than a token acknowledgement – it is vital that we ask and listen to supporters themselves.
