Christmas Message From Trust Chair

Trust chair Keith Morgan

The year 2020 has been enormously challenging but as we near year’s end, I wanted to wish everyone a happy and safe Christmas.

We share everyone’s disappointment and frustration that fans have not yet been allowed back into the Cardiff City Stadium and that appears likely to continue for the foreseeable future.

The Trust will be involved in future meetings with the club on your behalf when discussions on this and any other issues impacting on supporters do take place.

I also wanted to thank you for your continuing support for the Trust. It is really appreciated and vital that supporters have a strong voice speaking on their behalf with our club.

Merry Christmas, Nadolig Llawen. Stay safe.

Keith Morgan, Chair

 

What Do You Think Of Match Streaming?

Keith Morgan

The Football Supporters’ Association wants fans to let them know their verdict on match streaming and the performance of iFollow (and clubs’ own streaming platforms).

The FSA has asked Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust to encourage fans to respond as they want the biggest possible sample to be able to influence the EFL.

Before the pandemic the iFollow platform was mostly used by overseas fans and those supporters unable to travel to away fixtures. But this season, without fans in grounds, it now means tens of thousands of supporters are accessing games online every week.

Fan experiences of the system have varied, hence the supporter survey.

·  Complete the survey yourself, if you’ve viewed at least 1 game this year via either iFollow or your club’s own platform – https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/efl-streaming

The survey will probably run until the end of next week, so there’s not a huge amount of time to gather the data needed in order to provide feedback to the EFL.

New Trust Magazine Out Soon

Football is being played behind closed doors but the latest magazine for Trust members is being published this month.

The magazine includes a message from our chair Keith Morgan and includes articles on football finance, football without fans and our famous Bluebirds Brainteaser quiz. We hope members enjoy the read.

Thanks to all Trust members for their continuing support. Non-members can join the Trust for just £12 a year at www.ccfctrust.org .

Trust Hits Out At Project Big Picture Plans

Trust chair Keith Morgan

Cardiff City Supporters’ Trust has expressed strong concern over the so-called Big Picture proposals for the future of football led by Liverpool and Manchester United.

Trust chair Keith Morgan, a football finance expert, said: “The game of football is surely about all fans, not the favoured few top clubs and their billionaire owners. The lockout of supporters from football due to the pandemic has really illustrated what we all knew – football is nothing without the fans and they must be listened to.

“We share the grave concerns of the Football Supporters’ Association who have spoken out strongly on behalf of fans. Similar worries have been expressed by Cardiff City fans on social media on the implications for supporters of clubs who do not feature in the top echelons of the Premier League.

“While we understand the financial pressures many clubs are facing because of the loss of income due to the pandemic, we believe these proposals which concentrate power in the hands of a few clubs are fundamentally wrong and should be abandoned. Even the majority of Premier League clubs think it is a bad idea.”
