Submit your views on the proposed changes for the Football League

22nd May 2016

Northampton Town Supporters' Trust is urging its members to give their views on new proposals concerning the future of the football league that were announced this week.

On Thursday BBC Sport reported that the Football League wanted to create an extra division, meaning that for the 2019-20 season there would be five divisions with 20 teams in it.

The supposed benefits of the proposals mean that more games would be played on weekends - with an end result of less midweek games and clearing up fixture congestion.

However, critics have pointed out it could lead to a loss of revenue for clubs with less fixtures to play.

A decision is due to be made on the proposals at the Football League's AGM in June 2017, and it would need the backing of 65 of the 72 league clubs to go ahead.

Supporters Direct has this week announced it will be consulting with supporters' trusts across the football league, including the five clubs which are owned by their Trusts.

Please submit your views using Supporters Direct's quick survey which you can find here, and mention that you are a member of Northampton Town Supporters' Trust.

Thank you for your support.
