As part of AFC Bournemouth’s commitment to supporter liaison the club plan to hold a series of discussion groups made up of fans and relevant club management.
To gain best effectiveness, we propose that each discussion group will be fairly small (up to 10 supporters in total), represent a cross-section of our fan base and be dedicated to a specific topic.
The format will be an initial meeting to gather feedback and ideas relating to the group topic and to decide where improvements can be made. At this point the group will also decide how it wants to time subsequent meetings as well as how to communicate with each other as well as to others.
A second meeting will discuss progress in achieving our objectives and a final group meeting will review what has been achieved. At the end of the group`s journey the club hopes to have made improvements within the topic`s scope while also having a plan for the future. The first discussion group topic will be ‘matchday experience’.
General manager and supporter liaison officer, Liz Finney said…
“This is a fairly meaty topic to start off with as it encompasses many important touch points such as ticketing, catering, value, et cetera. But we genuinely want to provide the best possible matchday to our existing supporters and give ourselves every opportunity to attract new supporters to the club.
‘Our supporters are the best source of information to help us do this effectively. The key throughout will be to be informal but focused, realistic on what we can achieve now, but ambitious for what we want from the future.’
‘We are also planning to hold a discussion group on communication and one on our commercial operation so, if these pique your interest you might want to hold out to be part of those meetings as the same supporters will not repeat across groups.
“This is an opportunity to be involved so please join us.”
AFC Bournemouth are planning the first meeting towards the end of November/beginning of December so if you would like to take part, please complete this form and send it to Liz Finney by email, fax, post or drop into the ground.
