BURTON Albion’s Fans’ Engagement Forum scheduled for Thursday, January 26, has been cancelled following a disappointing response.
Brewers supporters were invited to the free event so they could have their say on all aspects of the football club and were also asked to set the agenda but with only a small number responding the club will now look at alternative avenues of fan engagement.
Burton Albion commercial director Fleur Robinson said: “We were hoping as many fans as possible would attend because we think that it is important that supporters have a voice in shaping the football club’s policy and future.
“Social media isn’t the right place to make constructive progress and we need a proper framework for exploring fans’ opinions – both positive and negative.
“That’s why we have decided to organise another fans’ survey to begin an analysis of our supporters’ views.
“We will also create a Supporter Liaison Group which will be a representative cross-section of our fanbase and which will provide two-way communication between the club and the fans.”
Details of the Fans’ Survey will be announced in February.
To express an interest in joining The Supporter Liaison Group email firstname.lastname@example.org and explain why you would be a valuable member.
As a member of the group you will be required to meet with the football club and the rest of the group on given dates to put your ideas forward. Please note - meetings may take place at evenings or weekends.
