    Posted: 06 Feb 2020 at 6:28pm
The YBIG Independent Supporters Mandate would like to acknowledge the hard work done by the FAI ticket office in relation to the allocation of tickets for next month's Euro 2020 play-off in Slovakia.

Over 4,500 ticket applications for the allocation of 2,200 were received. While we have sympathy for any supporters that missed out, our information is that everyone with a season ticket and two of the eight games used to determine the allocation on their record was successful. 

This represents a fair bar and makes a welcome change from previous occasions with similar demand when a requirement of five or six games was closer to the norm for many supporters.  

As previously stated, we note that 'a revised travel and match ticketing (home and away) policy to be approved by the Board and agreed with the Governance Oversight Group' is included within the terms of the Government rescue deal. We look forward to contributing to that process. It is our belief that this should ensure that allocations for future oversubscribed games will be run as fairly as this one.

Thank you for your continued support.

Great to have people involved like Drumcondra 69er, Niamh O'Mahony etc these people obviously have a great love and passion for the game and makes a change to have people in the game to see what they can give as opposed to the previous regime in all they wanted  to see what they could get out of the game.
time is the stuff that life is made of, don't waste it.

The nice words are much appreciated, folks. The fact that a number of points raised in our GRG submission and in out larger 'Starting XI for Irish Football' document were definitely taken on board is rewarding. 

Obviously the rest of the Mandate committee have been instrumental in bringing us to this point. The Business Committee that Kev McDaid was elected onto hasn't met yet due to the paralysis in the association and we raised how ridiculous it was that the likes of him and Dan Lambert from Bohs who was also elected to the Commercial Committee last October weren't being utilised at the EGM. I'd expect things to start moving on that front now the finances have been turned back on. 

But we have also had great support from some other stakeholders. Stephen McGuinness and the PFAI have been huge allies for us in a situation where we didn't have many. 

The Irish Supporters Network have been excellent. Niamh  O'Mahony in particular is a very sharp operator and will be a superb sports administrator in future if she chooses to go that route. She's exactly the sort of person who should be involved in a new FAI. 

Also has to be said that Brian Hehir and the current CRISC Committee have been very supportive of the approach we've taken. A lot has been said in the past but in my view there's definitely a place for supporters clubs in the broader supporter movement. It's better for everybody if their voice is represented by a central body rather than a load of individual clubs jostling for positon. There's now a route for everyone to have a say, clubs through CRISC and independent fans through the Mandate. We're never going to see eye to eye on everything but we're proving we can work together.

Great work all.

I have signed up. 

I believe in this new FAI and I believe in those on the committee pending the removal of Joseph McGlue and the other facilitators in seniors executive management positions which I am sure will happen with your representations.

It is evident that the Department took on board the matters raise by Tony and reflected it in the MOU and serves to highlight how respected he is as Council Rep

To all members

The YBIG Mandate Committee welcomes Thursday's announcement of the rescue package for the FAI. 

Since our last update, we have had consistent engagement with various stakeholders within football and Leinster House including an address by committee member Tony Considine to an Oireachtas briefing In December. 

We made clear that the need for further reform beyond what was detailed in the Governance Review Group (GRG) and job security for those staff who bore no responsibility for the current crisis in Irish football were paramount in our concerns. We are very pleased to see that those concerns are addressed within the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the FAI and the Department of Tourism, Transport and Sport issued this week.

Our committee also welcomes the appointment of the three independent board members and look forward to working with Catherine Guy, Liz Joyce and independent chairperson Roy Barrett in tandem with the existing board. The filling of the CEO and Deputy CEO role on an interim basis by Gary Owen and Niall Quinn should provide some stability on what is proving a very difficult journey. 

In relation to concerns raised by some members about how those positions were filled, we note that 'an open and transparent public recruitment process (with appropriate Sport Ireland involvement, to be agreed by Sport Ireland) for a new Chief Executive Officer (and Deputy CEO if a permanent Deputy CEO is envisaged)' forms part of the MOU and believe this transparency is essential for such appointments going forward. 

Tony was in attendance at last week's EGM and FAI Council meeting and we congratulate Gerry McAnaney on his election as FAI President until the 2020 AGM. 

However, we were extremely disappointed to discover that ourselves, along with the other 20 new Council members awarded seats by the GRG, were unable to vote in the Presidential election. When we queried this in advance of the meeting, we were informed that this was down to an 'oversight' which meant that, while the GRG recommended we be added to the Council list, it didn't specify that we should also be added to the larger AGM list. We expressed our dissatisfaction with this at the EGM and requested that be noted in the minutes.

As previously stated, our position is that the GRG was too rushed a process for the level of reform needed and anomalies such as this only reinforce this belief.  We have been told this issue will be addressed as part of a broader review of the association's rules and welcome the fact that such a review is a condition of the rescue deal. 

We are also encouraged to see that 'a revised travel and match ticketing (home and away) policy to be approved by the Board and agreed with the Governance Oversight Group' is included within the MOU and look forward to contributing to that process. A copy of the full MOU is avaialble below.

 
As usual, we ask members to encourage fellow supporters who may not have already signed up to the Mandate to do so. From a starting point of zero, we now have almost 700 supporters signed up. The more members we have, the louder our voice can be. Fans can sign on at the below link and if any any members wish to take a more active role, please get in touch.


Thank you for your continued support.

To all members of the YBIG Independent Supporters Mandate,

As with many other stakeholders, the YBIG Independent Supporters Mandate are extremely concerned with the ongoing issues affecting the FAI and its impact on the sport across the country.

We were awaiting the publication of the KOSI report with interest and viewed that as an opportunity for the FAI and Sport Ireland to begin a new era of transparency as we try to discover exactly how poorly the organisation had been run over the last decade or more. 

While we appreciate that, if there was illegal activity taking place, it is right and proper that any individuals implicated should face appropriate sanction, the fact that the report remains unpublished means that we are still as in the dark about the circumstances that brought us to this point as we were at the start of the Governance Review Group process. This, in turn, has made it very difficult for the association to move forward and begin the path towards credibility.  

The accounts published today make for extremely grim reading and we are deeply concerned for the many good people working at grassroots level and the general staff of the FAI who are now facing into an uncertain future. We are examining the accounts in detail and it is reasonable to say that what has been published raises as many questions as it answers.

It has always been our belief that a complete clear-out of those who served on the board when the decisions that caused this situation were made is necessary and that remains our position. It is also imperative that the independent directors and chair requested in the GRG report are appointed as soon as possible and is very frustrating that this has yet to happen.

dead right to wait and see what comes out over the weekend. Digest what comes out and seek clarification  if needed. Then when your happy with everything work your magic.
Thanks for your time and dedication Tony.

All opinions are my own and have f**k all to do with Mullingar RISSC CRISC Ticket Office or the FAI

Time for fans voices to be heard at a pivotal time not wait for tennis balls in March

Can't speak for other groups but we'll obviously be making a statement after the accounts are published. 

Think today would be best for greatest impact but I’ll trust your judgment - hope the horse hasn’t bolted by then. Every politician in the country will be grandstanding tomorrow and statements could be lost amid the chaos. 

If Conway doesn’t announce he’s moving on tomorrow we’re goosed.

Would have to issue something after the accounts anyway, no point issuing something and then having to issue something else 24 hours, later.

Haven't any info but would be surprised if anything on that front is announced tomorrow, would expect if to go to the AGM. Just a gut feeling.
