Official Statement

SISA members and indeed BFC fans as a whole are no doubt very concerned about the Club's apparent lack of progress towards the appointment of a manager and beyond that the recruitment of a squad capable of competing in The Championship.

The Chairman's self-imposed time frame for appointing a manager has been and gone without any meaningful update being provided to the fan base.

Fans understandable concerns as to the Club's intentions are being expressed on social media/message boards and reflected in what are on anyone's assessment very worrying season ticket sales to date.

SISA now calls upon the Club to immediately extend the deadline of 21/6/14 that has been imposed for BFC fans to take up the offer of a discount on season ticket prices to 25/7/14 so as to allow the Chairman an opportunity to demonstrate to those who wish to see his commitment to the coming season before they make their own.

SISA End of Season Message

As the 2013/14 season draws to a close, we wanted to share a couple of messages with you and thank you for your continued support.

A season that many of us will want to forget; it has been a year characterised as much by off-field events as it has those on it. However, we are, as Football fans, eternal optimists and we continue to look to a future that holds exciting possibilities for Blackpool FC.

On the eve of one of the most important games in the the Club's history we will all unite for one last time this season and support those 11 men that step out wearing the tangerine shirt tomorrow. We need one last push to maintain our Championship status and then we can all sit down to enjoy the World Cup this Summer.

There appears to be a realisation that major change is needed over the Summer at the Football Club, and we hope that the Chairman will meet his responsibilities as custodian of the football club, finally taking the steps required to help make this Club worthy of the supporters.

Whilst the potential for transformation of the Club will undoubtedly give us cause for fresh optimism, what we can be certain of is that the that the Supporters Trust presents a genuine alternative for the supporters of our football club. SISA has been running for 18 months now and none of this would have been possible without the growing membership that has seen us reach unprecedented numbers for a Blackpool supporters group. We thank each and every one of you that has been with us along this journey and we hope you will provide your continued support as we make the next step to Trust status.

Keep the faith and Up The Pool.
