UIN 210863, tabled on 16 October 2014

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, how many meetings his Department has had with football supporters' groups or organisations since July 2011; and if he will make a statement.

Answered on

I meet regularly with a wide range of football organisations, including Supporters Direct and the Football Supporters Foundation. DCMS Ministers’ external meetings are published quarterly on the Departmental website

I continue to press the football authorities to better engage with their fans, but have been encouraged by the introduction of a designated Supporter Liaison Officer into each Premier League and Football League club.
