Football League, Sky turn fans against clubs

by Back Page Football

Birmingham City fans were none too impressed today when the below tweet came from the club’s official Twitter account.

Unsurprisingly, responses were along the lines of “And you wonder why we don’t get many down there!!” and “was that tweet a wind up”.

Birmingham later sent another tweet clarifying the situation, stating that, as a Football League club, they are contractually obliged to promote Sky Sports.

This isn’t the first time that fans have reacted angrily to a tweet of this nature, with Bolton Wanderers also feeling the heat back in August for the same reason.

It’s a sad state of affairs when clubs are forced to offer supporters an incentive not to turn up to the ground for a game.
