Research

Social and Community Value of Football

Supporters Direct is in a unique position in football to produce relevant and informative research and policy by “thinking and doing”.

We actively work at all levels of the game – with supporters groups, clubs and authorities, as well as looking outside the game – to improve governance, encourage better and more formal relationships between clubs and their supporters, plus helping supporters to take control of their clubs.

This provides a unique insight, and therefore our research is not only academically robust but based upon actual experience: Our research helps our development work, which in turn informs our research.

We have been at the forefront of shaping and arguing for reform, particularly on the formal role for supporters at their clubs and in the wider game, financial reforms, ensuring that owners are subject to greater scrutiny.
