(FSF) Fans` Parliament

(FSF) Fans` Parliament

How does a weekend on the beer in Newcastle with loads of football banter sound to you? Is that a yes? Well, read on…

Summer`s fast approaching and along with two weeks of sea, sand, and sangria it also means the Football Supporters` Federation`s (FSF) Fans` Parliament which, this year, takes place in Newcastle on Saturday, June 20th.

Fans' Parliament is the FSF's annual get together where we debate the big issues of the day - it`s entirely free of charge and open to everyone. Come and see what we're about.

The FSF represents more than 142,000 football fans throughout England and Wales - we lead the campaign against Gam£ 39 and also campaign on fans` rights, ticket prices, safe standing, and much, much more. Every year we come together to talk about the big issues affecting OUR game, and this year we`ve got plenty of tasty ideas to make a real weekend of it too.

As well as a top speaker addressing the key issues in today`s game we`ll have breakout groups looking into club governance and ownership, policing and stewarding, safe standing, ticket prices and diversity - all will have expert speakers too and every fan will also get the chance to have their say. Registration is required to attend Fans Parliament. Register today: Click Here

However there`s much more to Fans` Parliament than this. It`s also a chance for FSF members from around the country to catch up and a great opportunity for those wanting to get involved in the FSF to meet us and find out what we`re about.

On Friday night we`ll be going on a tour of Newcastle`s most esteemed public houses, get your drinking boots on and make sure you`re feeling thirsty. Hit the Toon with a semi-guided pub-crawl from our Northeast Division - it`s a great chance for those who are new to the FSF to get to know everyone. The braver among you can attempt to match FSF NE in the beer and curry stakes as well. Good luck with that.

Fans` Parliament itself runs through Saturday daytime and then on the night we`ll have a Have I Got News You-style Hacks v Crocks showdown at the Live Theatre. A crack team of journalists and ex-footballers will battle it out with plenty of jokes, japes, and audience participation. And more beer and curry, quite possibly.

Sunday and we`ve got even more to keep you entertained. Those feeling the strain can have a wander along Newcastle`s Quayside taking in the historic sights and sounds. Check out the market or maybe take a walk across the river and poke around the Baltic Art Museum or Sage courtesy of a tour from the FSF.

The less cultured among you can join us at the FSF`s fanzine/supporter five-a-side tournament we`re planning for Sunday (entries welcome). So if anyone`s got on your nerves over the weekend it`s two-footed tackle time. Only joking, of course…

We`re looking forwarding to seeing loads of new faces this year, and remember, you don`t have to be a member to come along. So if you haven`t received a blow to the head lately and taken leave of your senses, we`ll see you in Newcastle on Saturday, June 20th.
