FSA Support for GISC Members
One of the benefits of being a GISC member is free support from the Football Supporters’ Association. The FSA helps hundreds of fans every year who feel they’ve been poorly treated by their clubs, stewards or police.
They give those fans a voice, the best possible advice, and even free legal support where necessary. This is included in the cost of your GISC membership.
The main contact at the FSA for members is Amanda Jacks. Amanda can help directly with any issues you have regarding football, policing, stewarding or even iFollow.
When contacting Amanda please say you are a member of the GISC and include your membership number. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, she can be found on Twitter @fsa_faircop and her direct mobile number is 07703 519555.
Danial Pratt is the GISC FSA representative and he attends all FSA meetings to support and help supporters.
About the FSA
The FSA is the national, democratic, representative body for football supporters in England and Wales.
We are the leading advocates for supporter ownership, better fan engagement, cheaper ticket prices, the choice to stand at the match, protecting fan rights, good governance, diversity, and all types of supporter empowerment.
The breadth of work is huge and difficult to sum up in a paragraph or two. As the national organisation we have regular contact with the Premier League, the EFL, National League, and the FA, as well as a whole host of other organisations within football such as the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA).
Football is for all and we work closely with organisations such as Kick It Out and Level Playing Field to ensure that core belief is happening in the real world. We have supported the establishment of scores of BAME and LGBT fans’ groups over the past few seasons.
We are founder-members of Football Supporters Europe (FSE) who represent supporters across the continent and are heavily involved in the organisation, with two members who sit on FSE’s Committee (Kevin Miles and Paul Corkrey).
As secretariat to the All Party Parliamentary Football Supporters Group we have strengthened the voice of fans within Parliament in recent years.
Our casework helps hundreds of fans every year who feel they’ve been poorly treated by their clubs, stewards, or police. We give those fans a voice, the best possible advice, and even legal support where necessary.
We pioneered the concept of Fans’ Embassies and have helped fans of both the England and Wales men’s national teams at tournaments across the planet. We are proud to have replicated this service, for the first time, for England’s Lionesses at the Women’s World Cup 2019.
