LUSC STATEMENT ON FAN LED REVIEW REPORT
Leeds United Supporters Club, the oldest continuous football supporters club in the world and with over 10,000 members cautiously welcomes the report of the Tracey Crouch Fan led review of football.
We are delighted that basic rights that the Crouch report recommends that fans have are identical to the submission made by LUSC to the review and in our meeting with Tracey Crouch.
We proposed that fans should not sit on the board of football clubs such as Leeds United, but rather should have a binding say on the club stadium location, the club name, the club colours and the club badge. This is exactly what her review has concluded.
We do not share the aspiration of some in football to have fan ownership of Leeds United, instead we believe it is important that representative independent fan groups are able to discuss all major issues with club and our expertise, loyalty and community base.
LUSC supports our club, maintains a strong relationship with club staff and owners and we welcome the balanced approach that this review has set out.

Pay Per View - LUSC Statement
Leeds United Supporters’ Club are concerned regarding
the announcement that all October games, not selected for live television, will be shown on Pay Per View (PPV) at a cost of £14.95.
We fear that it may delay the return of fans to stadiums and could potentially lead to groups of people chipping in to reduce costs to watch the games together.
It would be much safer to get fans back safely into stadiums.
Fans are already expected to pay for Sky and BT subscriptions to watch live games.
Many of these fans are under the threat of redundancy or further furloughing.
With all the millions spent on transfers, agents etc in the game it seems very unfair to try to prise more money from fans.
We need to make sure that regular PPV is not brought in through the back door and that the Premier League finds a fairer way for all the loyal fans who are not allowed into stadiums to cheer on their team.

Leeds United Supporters Club was founded in 1919 and is the largest independent paying membership Leeds United Supporters group.
