Atmosphere

Ticketing

Aled outlined result of court case relating to his charge of selling a match ticket outside the Old Trafford. The CPS had wanted a 3yr ban, Aled plead mitigating circumstances (he had sold the ticket for less than face value on the night of the fuel crisis) and received an absolute discharge with no costs. Aled thanked IMUSA for their support.

Paddy Harverson in an interview had insinuated that United had reached a ceiling in prices of tickets. It was agreed that IMUSA needs to highlight this point by means of a press release and contact PH re-iterating quote.

Membership

Mark Southee stated Standing Order forms had been sent out to immediate renewals.

Panathanikos

The problems experienced by Liverpool fans whilst in Athens was highlighted. Representation to the Home Office had been made, with no response. United had been approached with a suggestion that fans accompany officials to destinations in advance of European ties.

SAFE

Mark Longden to visit grounds in Germany with Safe Standing campaigners and report back. AW stated that a EDM had been submitted to parliament and was hopeful in obtaining 30-40 signatures in support of Safe Standing.

NY Yankees

Mark Longden stated IMUSA's position on the merchandising tie up with the NYY. That being, all additional revenue gained should be used to the benefit of the team and supporters, in keeping prices down. Chris Robinson praised IMUSA's "balanced" press release. Members were concerned with a possible conflict in interests, a shift in focus away from local fans and the destination of increased revenue. AW suggested we write to the club highlighting concerns. Mike Shepherd agreed to draft letter.

Atmosphere

Document submitted by JS and PH was discussed. General consensus was that it was an excellent report, but that amendments needed making. AW agreed to make changes and add a section on unreserved seating, before submission to next Fans Forum.

No other business. Next meeting 15.03.01
