Six years after former HCST Chairman, Geoff Bielby, met with Richard Scudamore and his senior team at The Premier League,  see link,  https://hullcitysupporterstrust.com/hcst-meets-premier-league/?platform=hootsuite, Geoff, who is still an HCST Director but now also an FSA National Council member has again been invited to attend another important meeting regarding football supporters. On Monday an academic Workshop is being held at The National Football Museum to look at the growing issues of “Football Disorder at Football- Post Pandemic “. Those attending include staff from both The Premier League, The EFL, the Sports Ground Safety Authority, Club Supporter Liaison Officers from Port Vale, Cardiff City, Manchester United, and Grimsby Town. Also attending are representatives from The UK Football Policing Unit, West Midlands Police, representatives from the disabled group Level Playing Field and Her Game Too. Joining Geoff will be other leading Supporters representatives from clubs such as Liverpool, Blackpool West Ham Bolton Wanderers Sunderland. Geoff had a positive meeting with Hull City officials including Paul Woodford, Head of Operations, last month before meeting with the EFL senior team on 22nd June and remains in contact with him regarding this subject, especially as the club has launched a new campaign “Is This Your Game” in an attempt to manage the issues locally.
