The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust (THST) have finally agreed to meet with the Spurs board tomorrow but have insisted that the Trust will not be putting themselves forward for the fan director role.
In response to the European Super League debacle, THST initially said that they will not be meeting with the club unless six of their demands are met, one of them being a meaningful voice from supporters at the board level.
Tottenham released an official statement last Tuesday unreservedly apologising for their plan to join the European Super League and for making the decision without proper consultation with the fans.
The club also announced that they shall be liaising with key stakeholders and establishing a club advisory panel, comprised of elected representatives from the different constituencies of the fanbase, with the chair of the panel being appointed as a non-executive member of the club’s board.
This announcement was initially met with scepticism by THST, who questioned whether the move would give fans any real power.
Kat Law Co-chair of the Trust has confirmed that THST will not be putting itself forward for the Fan Director role since it goes against their constitution.
As expected. And just for the record, no. THST won’t be putting itself forward for the Fan Director role. We’ve said that until we are blue in the face!!!! It contravenes our constitution and believe me, someone else can have a go! 😀
