We reported back on the meeting in our July newsletter, and had hoped to give a fuller report back soon after. It's taken the PL the best part of seven weeks to produce a somewhat cursory account of the day's discussions, and we have made our view clear that meetings should be reported back on much sooner in future if they are to retain validity in the eyes of supporters. We are grateful to the Football Supporters' Federation for publishing a more informative account of the meeting.
Topics discussed were away ticket prices, kick-off times, Safe Standing, the Independent Football Ombudsman, the Living Wage and B teams in the EFL Trophy. There was also some discussion on the process of future meetings.
THST was encouraged by the progress made on Safe Standing, and this is something we've followed up at Club level.
This meeting was a first step in what could be a mutually beneficial process, and we'll be looking for improvements in future.
