Attended by Swindon Town Owner Clem Morfuni, Don Rogers, Rob Angus, Zav Austin, James Spencer who represented TrustSTFC and Anthony Reeves who was present on behalf of the Official Swindon Town Supporters Club, a number of key points were discussed, including:
- The Club's external debt has now been reduced from £4.5 million down to £2 million with all repayment plans on track.
- £300k in marginal profits were raised from the Man City game, with those funds going towards repayment of debts, legal costs and improvements to The County Ground and the Training Ground.
- Oldham Athletic game will be the Club's NHS and 'Blue Light' game with free and discounted tickets available to the NHS, Ambulance, Fire Service and Police staff.
- The Trust, STFC Community and Club are continuing with the local primary school and youth football ticket initiatives which are seeing c850 tickets being distributed each home game
- Work is underway on Season Ticket pricing for the 2022-23 season, with the Season Ticket Campaign expected to launch at the end of March.
- Supporters Club and the Trust will work together on coming up with Banning Guidelines for things such as use of flares, pitch invasions and racist and other abuse. The Club will then review and approve and issue a policy with the backing of both the Supporters Club and the Trust.

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.
The STFC Advisory Board will meet every month with the next meeting set for Tuesday 1st March 2022, 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.
