What changes have been made to the former SAB model?

The new Official Supporters’ Board has many new features, different from previous supporter consultation meetings undertaken by the Club. This includes:


  • A new structure – A Chair and Vice-Chairperson on the WHUSB elected by Supporter Representatives
  • Direct contact and support for Supporter Reps – All Supporter Representatives will be contactable through the Club’s official website
  • A voice for Young Hammers– The launch of the Junior Supporters' Board, a unique forum focused on our younger fans
  • A growing Disabled Supporters Board – Three new members to be appointed independently by the Co-chairs of the DSB
  • Specialist subgroups – Giving fans a chance to influence decisions made by the Club 
  • An independent selection process – All applications are anonymised and reviewed by four independent panel members, this year included Club legend Sir Trevor Brooking as a panel member
  • Bringing the Supporters’ Board to life – More than just minutes, we will see creative content showing the hard work of the WHUSB in action
  • Building relationships – Working with the Chair/Vice-Chair and all Supporter Reps on the agenda, actions and minutes of meetings
  • Terms of Reference – A new constitution outlining how the Supporters’ Board will run, agreed in partnership with the elected Supporter Reps.
