EFL to issue invitation to Blackpool Supporters’ Groups and Stakeholders

1 March 2018

The EFL has confirmed it will convene a meeting in March at a mutually convenient time and location for a number of fans and interested parties to discuss some of the ongoing concerns with regard to Blackpool Football Club.

Invites for the meeting, which will be issued next week, will be sent to representatives from the Blackpool Supporters Trust, Tangerine Knights, A View from the Tower, Back Henry Street, Blackpool MPs and the Blackpool Gazette. Access to the meeting will be restricted to those invited groups only and spaces will be limited.

At the meeting, attendees will be given the opportunity to raise their concerns and EFL officials will endeavour to provide answers wherever possible and explain its position on a number of matters that have previously been raised in the public domain.

The club has been informed of the intention to host this meeting and the EFL reserves the right to withdraw the offer to meet supporter groups if there are any further incidents of unwarranted abuse directed at EFL members of staff, either online or in person.

EFL Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey, said: “There are clearly a number of issues to be discussed in relation to the club’s difficult and complex situation and we will endeavour to provide answers to the questions raised, where we can.

“The EFL will continue to act in good faith towards the supporters of the club, and whilst this may not currently be the view shared across all sections of Blackpool’s fanbase, we will be happy to meet with the various parties to discuss their concerns.”
