It’s time to celebrate clubs and supporters’ groups that are getting it right so Supporters Direct has teamed up with Football Business Awards to recognise the best Club/ Supporter Group relationship.
Teaming up with the Football Business Awards will see the inaugural Club & Supporters Group relationship of the year award being given out in 2018.The aim is specifically to highlight all the good work happening across the country at all levels of the game. We want to celebrate the progressive, proactive and rewarding relationships that exist between supporters groups and their clubs. We want to recognise the solid partnerships that can survive and thrive no matter what the performance looks like on the pitch.
Whatever the achievement it needs to be symbolic of a genuine commitment from both sides that recognizes the importance of meaningful supporter/club involvement.
We are asking for both a supporters group and a club official to each submit a short nomination statement by midday on the 31st July 2018 detailing your credentials. The nominations opening will start on the 6th June.
A panel made up of people working within and outside the game will then select a winner from 3 shortlisted nominations, with the award winner to be announced at the prestigious Football Business Awards later in the year. Representatives from the winning supporters group (s) and football club will then be invited to collect the award at the gala dinner on 1st November.
