Ghana versus Brazil at Craven Cottage

The Football Supporters' Federation (FSF) is conducting an investigation into events outside Craven Cottage, prior to the international friendly match between Ghana and Brazil on Monday, 5th. September, 2011. Many independent eye-witness account have stated that the means for collection/distribution of pre-paid tickets was highly unsatisfactory, resulting in chaotic, potentially dangerous, scenes on Stevenage Road and adjacent streets. The delay in gaining entry meant that many fans missed a large part of the game or simply abandoned their quest. Dismissive responses from the Club to written complaints appear to have inflamed feelings yet further.

The FSF is compiling witness accounts and will send a report to Fulham FC, the FA, local Safety Advisory Group, Football Licensing Authority, and relevant police officials. Trust members, or fans in general, who attended this match and who wish to comment on their observations are encouraged to contact the FSF's Amanda Jacks at: amanda.jacks@fsf.org.uk
