The board hopes the event will help assist them with understanding the fans’ requirements as the club begins to plan for next season.

Topics under discussion will include: season ticket pricing, travel, requirements of exiled supporters, stand allocation, communication, community engagement, the appointment of a Supporter Liaison Officer and what else can be done to deliver the best matchday experience.

The meeting is invitation-only but around 50 supporters, including the different fan groups, are expected to attend.
