    Dear Fellow Supporter

    You will probably have read that the Football Association is
    considering moving the 2005/6 FA Cup Final to a Wednesday evening.

    The FSF has been in touch with the Football Association asking for prior
    consultation with supporters and seeking information on the timetable for a
    decision.

    The stated reason for moving the Cup Final to a Wednesday is to allow the
    England players a clear month between the end of the domestic season and the
    start of World Cup 2006 in Germany. As an alternative to moving the Final, we
    understand consideration is being given to dropping replays at the fifth and
    sixth round stages next season.

    The FSF national council has voted unanimously to oppose any such changes.
    We also believe that the FA is in breach of its own customer charter in not
    properly consulting supporters prior to considering any such decisions.


    SIGN

    The on-line petition at:

    _http://www.fsf.org.uk_ (http://www.fsf.org.uk)

    This will automatically send a complaint to the Football Association in
    respect of the lack of supporter consultation as promised by the FA's Customer
    Charter.

    The FA's Customer Charter can be found at:

    petition and complain to the FA.
