Every few years the Football Supporters’ Federation holds a national supporter survey to assess the state of the game and find out more about supporters’ views. They have just published their latest survey and are inviting you to take part.
The survey covers issues such as how many matches you go to, if you’re part of a fan group, whether you volunteer, the way you talk to and about your club through social media and if you watch matches across various digital platforms. They are also interested to see what hasn’t changed: do fans still back video technology, are they still against the idea of a winter break, which we’re supported when they last did a survey?
Chief executive Kevin Miles said: “When it comes to the health of the game there’s no-one whose opinion matters more than that of football supporters.
“Our National Supporters Survey is the largest of its kind, canvassing the views of supporters up and down the country. We want fans to tell us what really matters to them in 2017.”
Despite being a comprehensive survey covering a range of topics, the FSF say it should only take the average user around eight to ten minutes to complete. The results of the survey will be published before the start of the 2017-18 season.
The last of these censuses was carried out in 2012 with more than 4,000 supporters from 130 different clubs completing our survey, giving us a snapshot of supporters’ views up and down the game.
