Swindon Town Football Club hosted their third Advisory Board meeting at The County Ground earlier this month.
In attendance were Advisory Board members Clem Morfuni, who joined from Australia via Teams, Rob Angus and Eddie Parladorio, while Steve Mytton represented TrustSTFC and Anthony Reeves was the representative for the Official Supporters Club, while Club Ambassador Don Rogers was also in attendance.
The sole purpose of the STFC Advisory Board is to meet monthly to review and assess the performance and strategic direction of Swindon Town Football Club, and to ensure that there is open, transparent and regular engagement on key matters impacting all aspects of the club.
It also builds on the Memorandum of Understanding that was recently signed between Swindon Town and TrustSTFC, and it continues the commitment from the Football Club to maintain open and transparent engagement with its fanbase.
Here is a summary of what was discussed in the November Meeting:
- The Advisory Board discussed the merits of joining the Fair Game Initiative, which is a group of like-minded clubs driving change within football
- An update on the Club's financial position was given, with outstanding debts now estimated to be down to £2.5 million from £4.5 million.
- An update was provided on the commercial aspect, with the club exploring all options when it comes to Stadium Naming rights and naming rights for the Stratton Bank.
- The much-anticipated third kit will be available later this month, while next season's kit has been ordered in large supply and should be in store come Summer 2022.
- Work is ongoing regarding the purchase of The County Ground, with it hoped that a deal could be completed by February 2022.

The STFC Advisory Board will meet every month with the next meeting set for Tuesday 7th December at 8am, and there is an opportunity for fans to raise any questions they have via TrustSTFC and the Supporters Club.
The Advisory Board meetings present an ideal opportunity for fans to put across their feedback, ideas and suggestions to the club’s management team, so we encourage all supporters to get in touch with either of the Supporter Groups.
There will be a section devoted to the Advisory Board on the official Swindon Town Website, where documents and minutes from every meeting will be published for fans to read.
