Tottenham Hotspur revealed yesterday that they will appoint an elected supporter to their board as a non-executive member.
The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust (THST) revealed on Twitter they were not aware of the club’s intention to announce this new fan representation, suggesting it had not been involved in the new plan.
A part of the club’s plan following the fall-out of the failed breakaway to the European Super League, that they will now set up a ‘Club Advisory Panel’ comprising of elected representatives from different areas of the fanbase.
The THST have previously called for the club’s Executive Board to resign after claiming that they had been lied to in the past about the intentions to join a European Super League.
Chelsea also revealed earlier this week that three supporter advisors, picked through an election and selection process, will attend board meetings, however, they would not have any voting rights and will not participate in any meetings relating to players, staff, the Academy and related matters.
In contrast, Tottenham will include the ability for the chair of the advisory panel, who will be appointed on an annual basis to have full voting rights on matters decided by the board, including key footballing decisions according to journalist Jonathan Veal with Dan Kilpatrick highlighting the difference between the two rivals.
