FSF March Premier League Office

#ShareTVWealth protest: 26th March (London)

The #ShareTVWealth demonstration, organised by the FSF, will be taking place at the Premier League shareholders meeting on 26th March.  This will be taking place at the Le Meridien Piccadilly hotel, and the demonstration will begin at midday.  The purpose of the protest is  to  call for more affordable tickets and better distribution of football’s wealth throughout the football pyramid and grassroots

Football fans from a wide range of clubs will be attending and we encourage as many Villa fans as possible to attend.  Last year, Brigada 1874 and David Michael (AVST Director & editor of My Old Man Said) were in attendance to support the protest.  Fans should congregate outside the main entrance to the hotel, and the FSF will be handing over supporter demands to Premier League representatives at around 1pm.

The nearest tube for Le Meridien Piccadailly is Piccadilly Circus (Bakerloo and Piccadilly lines), while the nearest wheelchair accessible tube station is Westminster (District/Circle and Jubilee lines) around 1 mile away.

Further details of the protest can be found here on the FSF website.

Why does it matter?  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. Pressure on previous campaigns has led to the establishment to the Away Fans Initiative.
