Il Liverpool FC ha annunciato il completamento della procedura di selezione dei supporters dei Reds che andranno a comporre i gruppi di lavoro dei cinque Fans Forum dedicati a diverse tematiche su cui il club ha deciso di intraprendere un percorso di confronto strutturato con la base del tifo(qui dettagli). Il primo meeting è previsto per il 18 Novembre.

Dalle oltre 600 candidature ricevute sono stati selezionati dalla commissione interna del club, 'Electoral Commission', 52 tifosi che andranno a comporre i cinque tavoli per confrontarsi su: acquisto dei biglietti, prezzi dei biglietti, matchday experience/stadio, relazioni con la tifoseria, campagne antidiscriminazione. Le attività si articoleranno nel corso di tutta la stagione attraverso incontri periodici con gli addetti del club, 'dialogo strutturato'(qui approfondimento e Video1, Video2), per approfondire argomenti e problematiche di interesse generale e proporre soluzioni condivise.

Il percorso di avvicinamento alla base del tifo è partito dalla scorsa primavera(qui dettagli) come misura per adeguarsi alle nuove norme della Permier League emerse dal confronto con le rappresentative dei tifosi(qui dettagli) e dal positivo impatto nelle relazioni con lo Spirit of Shankly, il Supporters' Trust del club a cui è riservato un posto in ciascun gruppo. In diverse occasioni infatti l'associazione di tifosi ha dato grande dimostrazione di capacità organizzativa e di coordinamento nelle consultazioni della base della tifoseria(es. il sondaggio recente sui Rail Seats, qui dettagli).

Liverpool Football Club can confirm that the selection process for the new fan forums is now complete with the first meeting scheduled to take place later this week.

Almost 600 people applied for a place on the five forums which will allow the club to engage with supporters on issues relating to ticket pricing structure, ticket availability, local supporters, equality and diversity and the stadium. As a result, 52 supporters have been selected to participate as the club endeavours to improve engagement with fans.

Each of the fan forums will be made up of between nine and 12 supporters, with one seat being reserved for the Liverpool Supporters’ Trust (Spirit of Shankly) and one seat for a member of the outgoing Supporters’ Committee. The remaining seats were selected by an independent organisation (the Electoral Commission) from a database of fans who registered an interest in getting involved in one of the fan forums.

The first forum will focus on ticket availability and will take place on Saturday November 18. Details regarding the dates of the other forums will follow subsequently.

“The process has taken a little longer than planned but the priority was to ensure that it was as robust as possible in order to facilitate meaningful fan engagement,” Tony Barrett, head of club and supporter liaison, said.

“As part of that objective, we used an independent organisation, the Electoral Reform Society, to provide random selection but within a framework designed to ensure that a range of supporter experiences were covered. Rather than purely select the first supporters out of the hat we created a set of criteria based around ticket/membership status, match attendance, location, age, gender, disability relevant to each forum.

“Fans applied through online forms with all application data being sent securely to the Electoral Reform Society who carried out an independent randomisation and returned the list securely to the club. Fans were then selected to meet each criteria in order of the randomised list with Details provided by supporters being cross checked with the club database to ensure validity.

“We would like to thank all fans who applied to participate in the forums as whether their application was successful or not they have contributed to a process which will lead to an open dialogue between the club and supporters on a range of issues. We are now looking forward to the forums getting under way later this month.”
