The FSF's north west division is to relaunch by looking at the predicament of some of the region's clubs, while asking the question: what can fans do?

The meeting, hosted by the Blackpool Supporters' Trust (BST) will take place at The Hilton hotel on Saturday, November 12 and will start at midday.

A spokesperson said: "From the ongoing saga that is the Oystons and Blackpool, to Bolton Wanderers’ administration, to the Venky’s at Blackburn Rovers, and more - many proud north west clubs are going through tough times.

"The FSF is very pleased to say that Blackpool Supporters Trust is hosting this event giving fans across the region a chance to share their experiences, concerns, and ideas for campaigning together to improve football governance."

“With more money flowing into the higher echelons of the professional game than ever before and seemingly more and more ‘clubs in crisis’, there needs to be fundamental change in how our sport is governed,” says the BST.
