EFL Statement | Matchday Programmes

1 May 2018

At its summer meeting in June 2018, EFL Clubs will be asked to vote on a proposal that will determine whether or not it is an absolute requirement to produce a match programme from the start of season 2018/19 onwards.

A number of clubs have asked the EFL if the mandatory publication of a match programme can be addressed as a result of an overall decline in sales and the proliferation of digital and social media, which has the ability to deliver the same content in a more cost-effective manner.

Ahead of the meeting next month, we can confirm that we will be voting YES to retaining the matchday programme.

As a club, we feel that the programme is still an important part of the matchday experience and our football heritage, so no matter the outcome of the EFL wide vote next month, the award winning ‘The Voice of Spotland’ will continue to be produced during the 2018/19 season, with thanks to Mark Wilbraham.
