This season, the English Football League (EFL) will be consulting it's 72 clubs on a range of proposals called the 'Whole Game Solution' that affect the structure of the bottom three divisions, as well as the English football calendar - including regionalising of the bottom two divisions, creating an extra division, a winter break and moving two rounds of the FA Cup.
The Football Supporters' Federation (FSF) will lead a delegation of fans meeting the EFL next month and the 'Whole Game Solution' will be at the top of the agenda.
With this in mind the FSF would like to gather your thoughts on the 'Whole Game Solution', and the other issues it raises in order to take the views of genuine supporters to the EFL. To help them do this they have launched a new survey with a closing date of Friday, 21st October. Click here to go to the FSF article on the subject. At the bottom of which there is a link to the survey.
Have you ever wondered if a Stoke City match is being shown on TV in a pub near you?
The FSF (Football Supporters' Federation) has informed us of a website called Match Pint. It endevours to find what pubs are showing what matches and they have just added a new interactive map for London pubs.
We would like to remind you that the club has two adjacent seats in the Boothen End for members to purchase. Applications for tickets can be made online at any time up to two days before the tickets go on general sale. A ballot will be held if more than one member should apply for a particular match.

We are currently on the lookout for new committee members to join us. All you need is enthusism and the ability to attend one meeting every 4-6 weeks at the Victoria pub in Paddington.

Welcome to the website of the Stoke City Southern Supporters Club.
We were formed in 1968 as a way for exiled Stoke City supporters in London and the south of England to get together and travel to matches and we are recognised by Stoke City FC as an official Supporters Club.
Our aim with the website is to keep you informed about all things Stoke-related and to provide news about events, travel etc. organised by SCSSC. Please feel free to explore our new website and contact us with suggestions about what else you would like to see.
