Promotion Secured

The Fulham Supporters’ Trust warmly congratulates everybody associated with Fulham Football Club on winning the playoff final at the weekend, and securing promotion back to the Premier League.

While that sentence might accurately and succinctly sum up Saturday’s outcome, it does nothing to reflect the exhilarating way in which promotion was secured, the record breaking achievements of the season particularly since Christmas, and how much it means to all of those who love Fulham Football Club.

Results are important in football, but winning while playing entertaining and exciting football is what every fan yearns to see. Under Slavisa Jokanovic, we have been privileged to see a team built according to his principles, playing some of the best football in the country, with a team spirit and determination which transmits from the pitch to the stands -all making it a joy to watch them play, home and away. We have seen players develop and improve, forming a cohesive, committed unit that has surpassed all expectations. To go half a season unbeaten in the Championship is a remarkable achievement.

The culmination of the season at Wembley on Saturday was the perfect way to finish the job. For Fulham fans, having waited longer than almost anybody to play at Wembley, it was the spectacle we wanted, and having 38,000 there to support the Whites was going to make it something special. The game was billed as youth v experience, skill v solidity, naive pretenders v the football establishment - yet the way in which Fulham controlled the game and created chances from the start, it was Aston Villa who looked overawed and unnerved by the occasion.

Fulham fans wanted to play their part, too. When the Trust ran a Twitter poll on what colour fans would wear to the final, the #ffcwhitewall was born. With social media, blogs and podcasts also pushing it, it is credit to the club for getting behind the call to action and helping create the magnificent sight of the east side of Wembley resplendent in white in the sunshine, with the volume and passion of the support more than matching the opposition fans, who after a few minutes subsided into sullen murmurings for much of the game.

Over the next few weeks, the Trust will be preparing for next season and we want to encourage more members to get involved. Please keep an eye on our website, follow us on Twitter (@fulhamsupptrust) and encourage friends, family and fellow fans to join the Trust too, to support what we all want to see and will experience for at least the next season - Fulham playing in Fulham at the top level of English football.

Enjoy the close season

Fulham Supporters' Trust AGM - 22nd May

Congratulations to Slavisa Jokanovic and his Fulham team on their sensational victory over Derby last night - and we have one more game to play - and a second visit to Wembley after 43 years...so in the build up to the big game, come to the upstairs bar of The Crabtree next Tuesday, 22 May, at 7pm for the Fulham Supporters' Trust end of season get together and AGM.

We are pleased that Alistair Mackintosh, Chief Executive, and Sean O'Loughlin, Finance Director, have agreed to come along and will take part in a Q&A on all things Fulham. So be it tickets at Wembley, the Riverside Stand development, Financial Fair Play, transfer strategy for both results next week, atmosphere at the Cottage.....or whatever you want to ask about, this is your chance to do so. 

Join the Trust and our current committee in the upstairs bar to celebrate a memorable season (so far...), help pass what might be the longest week and a half in recent Fulham history with fellow fans, and let us know what you want the Trust to be doing on your behalf next season, be that in the Premier League or Championship. The upstairs bar will remain open after the AGM and Q&A for further discussion.

If you are a member of the Trust please just let us know if you are planning to come along (so we can make sure there are enough seats...) by email to info@fulhamsupporterstrust.com - and if you are not yet a member, you can join now for the 2018/19 season from as little as £5 here - we'd love to see you there next Tuesday.
