Fans Battle To Save The Cup

Message from the Football Supporters' Federation:


Dear Fellow Supporter

You will probably have read that the Football Association is
considering moving the 2005/6 FA Cup Final to a Wednesday evening.

The FSF has been in touch with the Football Association asking for prior
consultation with supporters and seeking information on the timetable for a
decision.

The stated reason for moving the Cup Final to a Wednesday is to allow the
England players a clear month between the end of the domestic season and the
start of World Cup 2006 in Germany. As an alternative to moving the Final, we
understand consideration is being given to dropping replays at the fifth and
sixth round stages next season.

The FSF national council has voted unanimously to oppose any such changes.
We also believe that the FA is in breach of its own customer charter in not
properly consulting supporters prior to considering any such decisions.


SIGN

The on-line petition at:

_http://www.fsf.org.uk_ (http://www.fsf.org.uk)

This will automatically send a complaint to the Football Association in
respect of the lack of supporter consultation as promised by the FA's Customer
Charter.

The FA's Customer Charter can be found at:

IF YOU WANT TO PREVENT THIS VIOLATION OF THE FA CUP YOU NEED TO ACT NOW:
SPREAD THE WORD

Forward this e-mail to all your football mates. Get them to sign the
petition and complain to the FA.

ACT NOW. TOMORROW MAY BE TOO LATE. For further information e-mail:
