You may have seen on the BBC or in the wider media yesterday the results of the Football FSFlogoSupporters’ Federation’s Away Fans Feedback survey. The survey was conducted over the course of the 2013/14 season as part of the FSF’s Away Fans Matter campaign, and asked fans to rate their matchday experience travelling to grounds up and down the country. 

We believe that by collecting data on fans’ experiences we will be able better to understand where clubs are performing well, and where there is room for improvement, and work to improve the supporter experience.
More than 5,300 fans completed the survey, which is the largest of its kind.

As well as providing an overall score for their visit, which has resulted in the league tables in the link above, we sought fans’ views on a wide range of factors – such as safety and security, transport to the ground, access at the turnstiles, the concourse layout, food and drink and the view of the pitch.

Attached is a more detailed breakdown of how your club rated on six key areas, compared with other clubs in your division. We have sent this information to your club’s Supporter Liaison Officer, and are passing on these club-related breakdowns to all FSF affiliates and associates. We hope that you will find it useful in any discussions you have with your club.
If you would like to discuss the results in more detail, or have any questions about the survey, feel free to get in touch.
