Premier League pledges £1bn redistribution as fan campaigning starts to pay off

The meeting of Premier League clubs last Thursday saw fans outside the Le Méridien Piccadilly in central London to protest about ticket prices building on the success of the “£20 is Plenty campaign” which resulted in a number of clubs agreeing reciprocal deals for away fans.

Inside the meeting, a letter calling for a small percentage of the new £5.14 billion television rights deal to be used to help lower the cost for supporters, especially travelling fans, was read to the members by Premier League Chief Executive Richard Scudamore. The Foxes Trust was one of the organisations who signed the letter. The letter was a central piece of a new campaign #sharewealth

The Leicester Mercury spoke to Trust Chairman, Ian Bason, prior to the meeting http://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/Leicester-City-fans-join-protest-Premier-League/story-26236363-detail/story.html

Following the meeting, the Premier League quickly released news of a new deal giving significantly more funds focusing on five key areas. http://www.premierleague.com/en-gb/news/news/2014-15/mar/260315-premier-league-clubs-to-share-record-amount-of-TV-deal.html

Share TV Wealth demo: Thursday 26th March (central London)

The Football Supporters' Federation will lead a demonstration of fans at the next meeting of the Premier League's shareholders at Le Méridien Piccadilly (London) on Thursday 26th March (midday). This is a vital demo for fans from ALL leagues - we want to see you there regardless of the club you support.

  • Register: Email protest@fsf.org.uk
  • Date/venue/time: Le Méridien (21 Piccadilly, London, W1J 0BH) on Thursday 26th March (midday) - map here. Fans should gather directly outside the main entrance. The meeting is arranged by the PL, we're targeting it to deliver our message but have no control over when/where it takes place. The nearest tube is Piccadilly Circus.

Why does this matter to all fans?

Because the Premier League have recently signed a new TV deal worth £5.14bn for the domestic rights alone. We want to lobby club owners, chairman, and chief executives to #ShareTVWealth - that means cheaper tickets for fans and a fairer distribution of football's wealth throughout the Football League, non-league, and grassroots. Fans of all clubs must back this argument as we want to make sure everyone benefits from this huge windfall, not just top-flight players, agents, and owners. From fans of the biggest clubs to the smallest, we want to see you to deliver the message directly PL shareholders.

Yet another game marred by an appalling decision

Spurs 4 City 3

Report by Kate Thompson

The talking point in this game was the diabolical awarding of a penalty for an apparent foul by Nugent on Rose.  The worst crime Nugent committed was to delay too long on the ball, enabling Rose to pinch it off him.  It looked more like a foul on Nugent and after seeing it again on Match of the Day, my opinion hasn’t changed.  At that stage the game was level and, if anything, City were in the ascendancy, so it was a real game-changer.

Pearson opted for an attacking line-up, with Nugent, Vardy and Ulloa up front; Mahrez and Kramaric dropped to the bench.  The other change was a return after injury for Schmeichel. 

City started rather slowly, as is often their wont, and were two goals down after only 13 minutes, both of them scored by the one-time City loanee, Harry Kane.  Those who thought he might not play in his usual way after his England call-up were very wide of the mark.  However City rallied and a lovely move between Nugent and Vardy – so reminiscent of many games last season – saw the latter score a beauty in the 38th minute.

Upson was replaced for the second half by Wasilewski, apparently because of injury and in the 49th minute Morgan scored his first Premier League goal – a header from a corner, something as rare as hens’ teeth for City! 

The goal got the City fans backing their team vociferously and we began to dream that we could get something from the match, until referee Mike Dean kicked us in the teeth with the penalty award; Kane duly dispatched the goal, to score his hat-trick in the 64th minute.  The whole incident left the players, management and fans incandescent with rage.
