EDINBURGH RUGBY FAN ENGAGEMENT FORUM

OUR COMMITMMENT

To create an inclusive Fan Engagement Forum where the thoughts, ideas and opinions of Edinburgh players, staff and supporters is equal and creates a collective contribution to key decisions made by the club.

OUR AIMS

  • To strengthen links between the club, its supporters and our community
  • To ensure fans have an opportunity to input into key decisions made by the club
  • To improve the Edinburgh Rugby experience (particularly on matchday) for the benefit of supporters and our community

THE APPLICATION PROCESS

To apply to be one of the representatives on the Edinburgh Rugby Fan Engagement Forum, supporters must complete the online application form by midnight on Sunday 27 May.

Appointments will be made dependent on applications received, but the desired make-up of the panel would consist of:

  • Edinburgh Rugby Staff
  • Current & Former Players
  • Current Season Ticket Holders
  • Ocassional Match Ticket Purchasers
  • Commercial Sponsors / Partners
  • City / Community Stakeholders

We realise that many supporters could be represented in numerous groups, but we wish to provide the opportunity for everyone to have voice. We will continue to conduct regular surveys of our supporter groups to gather insights into the issues affecting Edinburgh Rugby, supporters and the wider community.

While supporters are entitled to apply to represent any group for which they qualify, applications are limited to one per supporter. We therefore ask supporters to apply for the group which they feel best describes their relationship with Edinburgh Rugby.

SELECTION PROCESS

All applications will be reviewed following the closing date and successful applicants will be informed by Thursday 31 May. The first meeting of the Fan Engagement Forum will take place in June, to welcome members, outline their role and table the first topics for discussion.

ROLE OF FAN FORUM MEMBERS ONCE ELECTED

Once elected as a representative of a group, members will be required to attend approximately four meetings throughout the year.

It’s important that when taking on this role, the representative actively interacts with other fans in their categories to establish a positive community. Representatives on the Fan Engagement Forum will hold their post for one year. This is not a job with Edinburgh Rugby, but is a voluntary opportunity.
