STAR Supports

STAR Supports

STAR supports the organisations who represent and seek to improve fans interests.

Football Supporters’s Association

The Football Supporters Association (FSA) is the one national, democratic body representing football supporters in England and Wales. It was formed in 2018 by the merger of the Football Supporters Federation and Supporters Direct and is based in offices in Sunderland and London. The FSA represents supporters through its seat on the FA Council, by its Secretariat of the House of Commons All Party Parliamentary Group on Football and in many other ways. STAR and its Board members are active participants in the FSA.  Read more here.

Kick It Out

Kick It Out is English football’s equality and inclusion organisation.

Working throughout the football, educational and community sectors to challenge discrimination, encourage inclusive practices and campaign for positive change, Kick It Out is at the heart of the fight against discrimination for everyone who plays, watches or walks in football.  Read more here.

Level Playing Field

Level Playing Field (LPF) believes that being a disabled person is a social issue and that an individual only becomes disabled because of the social, attitudinal and environmental barriers that the individual faces (this is known as the social model of disability).  Read more here.
