Clubs and Supporters for Better Governance in Football project

The Irish Supporters Network were a contributing organisation of the Clubs and Supporters for Better Governance in Football project.

It was a two-year collaborative partnership, coordinated by SD Europe, and co-financed by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union and UEFA.

The project sought to help promote EU principles on good governance in sport through a training, education and exchange programme involving member-run football clubs and national supporters organisations, from seven EU states, over a two-year period (2016-17)
