Whole Game Solution - FSF Survey

This season, the Football League (EFL) will be consulting its 72 clubs on a range of proposals the 'Whole Game Solution' that affect the structure of the bottom three divisions as well as the English football calendar - including regionalising of the bottom two divisions, creating an extra division, a winter break and moving two rounds of the FA Cup.
The Football Supporters' Federation (FSF) will lead a delegation of fans meeting the EFL next month and the 'Whole Game Solution' will be at the top of the agenda. 
With this in mind we would like to gather your thoughts on the 'Whole Game Solution' and the other issues it raises in order to take the views of genuine supporters to the EFL. To help us do this the FSF have launched a new survey here.  
NUST members are encouraged to complete the survey to let the FSF get as wide a response as possible from supporters across all clubs.



“Nobody dies in football matches in fires. It doesn’t happen.”

The 56 presented by LUNG Theatre  Photograph Joe Priestley

With the new football season well under way Live Theatre will be kicking off September by presenting LUNG Theatre's award-winning play The 56 - a look at one of the darkest days in football history on Tuesday 6 and Wednesday 7 September.
At 3.40pm on 11 May 1985 Bradford City Football Club were supposed to be celebrating receiving the Division Three championship trophy – their first trophy in 56 years – in front of 11,000 jubilant fans before the start of their match against Lincoln City.
Instead it turned into a day of appalling tragedy. A small fire broke out in the main stand at Valley Parade stadium. Within four minutes, the wooden structure was ablaze. Using over sixty real-life testimonies this bold and pertinent piece of documentary theatre pays homage to the 56 supporters who lost their lives and more than 250 who were injured and examines the solidarity, strength and community in the face of overwhelming tragedy.
