Fan Activism

Fan Activism is simply the act of football fans getting together over some common ground and standing up for their rights. Using the #FanActivism hashtag we want to see examples of football fans coming together, putting their club-differences aside and actually working together to achieve a common-goal. Fans often get given a bad name but on this section of FootyBlog.net we want to show the more genuine side of fans – whether that’s pulling together to raise money for a worthy cause, trying to prevent football clubs over-pricing their tickets, or helping to prevent newspapers printing untrue or offensive material.

 

So get involved here if you’re looking to stand-up for some worthy football causes, and don’t forget to get in touch with us if you need help getting your cause heard amongst your fellow football fans.

Campaign to deny The Sun Newspaper access to all Premier League Football Clubs

You’ve likely heard about the decision by Everton FC to deny The Sun journalists access from their premises, a move which followed former editor Kelvin MacKenzie’s racist and unprovoked article which attacked footballer Ross Barkley and people from Liverpool.
