הסקר הכלל אירופאי החצי שנתי של קבוצות / עמותות האוהדים

  1. 1. Supporters Direct Europe Trust Survey April - May 2014
  2. 2. 1 Background As you know, this year we started surveying supporters’ organisations* on a regular basis. Of course we’re in contact with you all, and know what you’re up to, but the idea is to build up a full picture of the movement and its growth over time. We want to pinpoint the success stories, share them with the rest of the network, and help overcome the challenges we face collectively. As a reminder, the first survey was conducted in April 2014 (focusing on January-March) and the second one in September (looking at April-June). The results of the second survey are presented here. The main areas covered by this survey are membership and community, communications, and relationships with stakeholders. These are not set in stone, and if you think we’re missing something, please do let us know! * Can be a trust, a national organisation, or a members’ club

  27. 27. 7 Conclusions Although two surveys don't provide a huge amount of data, we can safely draw the conclusion that the supporter ownership movement is growing - clearly shown by the rising number of new organisations that join the family and the 30% increase of overall members. While the relationship between supporters and the rest of the football and political stakeholders has suffered a slight dip, there has also been major developments in the dialogue, both internally (over-doubled number of meetings with supporters and of the people who attended) and externally (360% more meetings with stakeholders). In terms of communications, we've also seen major growth - 80% more website visits, 30% more Facebook likes, and 15% more Twitter followers overall. So overall, the picture is very positive. Of course, the surveying process isn't perfect, and we're still looking for the right formula of frequency, questions, and so on. So in the future, we're going to: •Run surveys every six months, instead of every three •Do our best to make your previous answers accessible whilst completing each survey (if Surveymonkey let us!) •Modify some of the questions, based on your suggestions and what we think might help capture better info As mentioned above - if you have any ideas about how we could improve the survey, please do let us know. Hopefully you find the data useful, encouraging, and interesting. Many thanks for your contributions so far! The next survey will be run in January 2015.
