Friday 8th February 2008
The Premier League have gone too far with their proposals to invent an extra fixture to be played abroad – and the time for football fans to stand up and be counted has arrived.

Under the banner of the NO TO GAM£ 39 campaign The Football Supporters’ Federation’s will co-ordinate strong, swift and decisive action, at both national and local levels, which will leave those seemingly intent on destroying our national game in no doubt that we’ve had enough.

The fight back starts here – it’s time for us to reclaim the game from those intent on pimping it out to boost their already burgeoning bank balances.

The Premier League’s proposals to play games abroad has outraged supporters at every level, because the last thing the game in England & Wales needs is an even bigger wealth gap between the Premier League elite and the rest.

And, yet again, they’ve displayed a complete disregard for the interests of those without whom there would be no show – the fans themselves.

The FSF are planning local action at every Premiership club, inviting supporters of all teams to unite under the banner NO TO GAM£ 39. They’ve gone too far this time – and the time to do the right thing is right now.

Here are a couple of things that you, as a football fan, can do right now:
Sign the petitionThe FSF have set up an online petition so that fans can register their disgust direct to the 20 Premier League clubs, the Premier League themselves and a number of other key players in the football industry.

Sign the petition here.
