EFL meeting first step on 'long road' to change, says BST

The 7pm meeting has been called to enable Blackpool's supporters' groups to discuss their concerns with the game's governing body.

The EFL has stated: "At the outset of the meeting, the EFL will provide an overview of the current approach/position in relation to the relevant matters that will assist and inform a Q&A session with the participants.

“The Gazette will be the only media in attendance and will report on the outcome of the meeting upon its conclusion.

“The EFL will issue a statement post the conclusion of the meeting to update on the discussions.

"The meeting will be filmed and recorded by the EFL for future reference purposes, not for broadcast.”

Groups initially invited to send representatives were: Blackpool Supporters’ Trust, Tangerine Knights, A View From The Tower message board and Back Henry Street message board as well as local MPs.

However, it is understood MPs Gordon Marsden and Paul Maynard will be unable to attend as they have prior commitments in Westminster.

Blackpool Supporters' Association and the Muckers Supporters' Group have since received invitations.
