Fan Engagement; Waiting For The Great Leap Forward
Keynote Speaker: David Goldblatt
All football supporters, regardless of club allegiances or political beliefs, are cordially invited to an evening of informed discussion on the subject of fan engagement and fan involvement in football clubs. With a general election on the horizon, football fans are being courted with promises of jam tomorrow by the major parties. Can we trust professional politicians to deliver on these promises in an era of seemingly unending austerity? What can we demand from the establishment and, more importantly, what should we be prepared to accept?
David Goldblatt, author and contributor to, among others, The Observer, The Financial Times, New Statesman and New Left Review is in Newcastle on a fact-finding trip, to discover the reality of supporter opinion in the region, behind the tired clichés of much media reporting. All fans are welcome to the event, which is FREE to attend.
