This petition was submitted during the 2017–2019 Conservative government

Rejected petition For the FA to start thinking of the fans before money and TV fixtures.

For many years now football has been more about the money and television. The fans who travel to see their team are constantly frustrated with last minute changes to fixtures meaning cancelling of tickets hotels and difficulties with travel plans etc . Put fans before TV fixtures and Money.

More details

Boxing day fixtures - boxing day a day when you spend it with family and friends and make plans for the night. Now Amazon have got involved they have 8pm kicks off scheduled. Travel is awful around Christmas time but they don't care as more £££ is involved.

Start putting Fans First. Stop just looking at the ££ signs and think of the difficulties it can cause for home / away fans. It really needs to stop.
