BURTON Albion Football Club is hoping to get more Brewers fans involved in its supporter engagement process by having two open forums for the 2019/20 season.
Commercial Director Fleur Robinson and key staff members will be available to answer questions from any supporter who has a query about non-football matters.
The first forum will take place at the end of September. More details will be available closer to the date.
The second forum will take place later in the season.
The free events will be open to all supporters and will take place at the Pirelli Stadium.
Fleur Robinson said: “Fan engagement is very important to everyone at Burton Albion and the opinions of our supporters helps us keep improving the matchday experience for all visitors.
“We listen to all opinions and take every comment seriously – good or bad.
“For the last couple of seasons, we have taken on board fans’ opinions through the Supporter Liaison Group, but our annual survey has shown that the majority of fans are not engaging with the SLG in the way we had hoped.
“Therefore, we have decided to move towards open forums to give more fans the opportunity to have a say.
“We would like to thank the SLG and its members for their hard work and this decision has been taken after consultation with the group. There has been a lot of positive work undertaken by the group all on a voluntary basis which the club is very grateful for.
“We always review our fan engagement on an annual basis and after discussion with members of the SLG and the demand for the open forums to return we feel this change of direction is the right way forward and will be looked at again next season.
SLG chairman Anton Williams said: “I want to thank all the SLG members for their contributions over the last two years. It has been great to be involved and see some of our ideas taken forward.
“We hope fans continue to support the club with feedback and ideas and that they make use of the open forums.”
