Clarification – The FWA and dispute resolution
The Football Writers' Association yesterday made a statement in which we called for a resolution to our members being banned on Merseyside.
We do not represent the interests of news organisations but have an obligation to respond to issues raised by any individual member in respect of bans by clubs or organisations.
For many years, the FWA has been actively involved in dispute resolution at clubs all over England, sometimes successfully, sometimes unsuccessfully.
For clarification, we would like to make it clear that our sponsors neither influenced nor endorsed our decision, it was a statement designed purely to outline the Association's position.
