Bristol City Supporters Club & Trust were one of the groups represented in the first ever structured dialogue meeting in the women’s game between the Football Association (FA) & Football Supporters Association (FSA).
City Women fan representative Shahan Miah was one of nine supporters representing groups the FSA Women’s Game Network, who visited Wembley Stadium on Tuesday 18th October to discuss a range of topics with FA officials, including Baroness Sue Campbell (Director of Women’s Football) & Kelly Simmons (Women’s Professional Game Director). The meeting was chaired by the FSA’s Debs Dilworth (Women’s Game Network Manager) & David Rose (Deputy Chief Executive).
The meetings will continue to take place twice per season and give different supporter groups in the women’s game the opportunity to discuss key issues across all relevant FA-run leagues and teams – from the Women’s Super League to the Championship, National League levels & the national team.
This was the first meeting of its type in the women’s game and the FSA thought that it would be great to mark the occasion by recording the experience of supporters on the day. The video showcases the supporter representatives from across the pyramid making their way to Wembley for this very important day.
