BIAS has written to The FA, Hull and Arsenal about the late announcement that the Hull City fixture has been postponed.
While we understand that fixtures sometimes need to be moved for cup matches, fans need to be given sufficient notification. We’ve called for the FA and the clubs to put in place compensation arrangements for affected fans that had already booked travel and accommodation.
We are also asking for clarity on the rules relating to notification of fixture changes and what protections exist for fans.
We have received responses from both Arsenal and Hull City who have clearly stated that the decision was made by the FA. We are yet to receive any response from The FA
