An open letter to the viewers and subscribers of Redmen TV regarding the break up of the Super League, ownership of Liverpool Football Club and the future of football….
We along with many other outlets have been covering the outrageous European Super League news this week. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support during this time. We’ve felt emboldened and invigorated by the togetherness of football fans around the world and we will continue to fight for what we believe is right.
The shut down of the Super League is a battle which has been won but the fight for a football that we believe in has only just begun.
We wholeheartedly stand for reforms in football. These reforms need to address a myriad of issues including the distribution of money down the whole football pyramid. Racism in football needs addressing and inequality in all its forms. There needs to be, in our opinion, fan representation on the board of every club in the land. Fairer ticket prices, greater consideration on kick off times and ease of access to tickets for young fans must be factored in. We also need to urgently address the new Champions League format, proposals for an expanded Club World Cup, and the knock on impact on our domestic cup competitions. Hopefully, and perhaps most importantly, we believe in exploring and pursuing something similar to the German 50+1 fan ownership rule. This list is by no means exhaustive and I’m sure there are countless things that are important to us all.
With regards to the ownership of Liverpool FC, and the next steps, there will of course be a difference of opinion amongst the Liverpool fan base, but now is not the time to turn on each other. There is a collective feeling that football needs to change and this can be achieved if we all stand together.
To that end we will be listening to, and taking our lead from the likes of Spirit of Shankly, Spion Kop 1906, Reclaim Our Game, The FSA and supporter collectives from across the pyramid.
This week has shown us that when we move as one, we move with the power to change football, and the world, for the better.
This isn’t over and we will use our voice and the platform that you have afforded us to achieve our collective goals.
UNITY IS STRENGTH.
