Supporters Direct will be holding a Members’ Day on Sunday 20th May 2018 in Birmingham.

The Members’ Day is for board members and volunteers from Supporters Trusts and Supporter-Owned Clubs. 

We have a number of interesting speakers presenting to delegates and workshops to attend. These will cover a range of topics from practical sessions to help you run your organisation to sessions tackling the wider issues in sport.  

This day will also give members the opportunity to discuss the future of Supporters Direct (as an independent organisation or a new combined organisation with the FSF) with Ashley Brown (CEO) and SD board members.

Lunch will provide a great chance to network with other members within your network (and beyond) as well as to learn about the new SD Hub or chat to representatives from the FCA (TBC). 

This year, SD and the FSF will be holding their AGMs in as stand alone events. Details of the AGMs will be announced soon.

Do Supporters DIrect Only have Members in London and Manchester? Or are these the only places that count?

Hi Martyn,

Of course, we have members all over the country which is why we're hosting the event as central as possible.

Manchester and London are two of the major stations that you can catch a train to arrive in time for the start of the event. Unfortunately, we can't list every station but have put the National Rail link so delegates can check their trains easily.

NB. I've since added Liverpool
