Charlton Athletic withdraw their request for fan to sign an Agreed Behavioural Contract
A Charlton fan expressed that he has had enough of the way he and other supporters are being treated and was threatened with having his season ticket withheld unless he signed a contract preventing him from making derogatory comments about the club.
The fan, who had been involved in protests against the way Charlton Athletic has been run under owner Roland Duchâtelet, received a letter from the club last week stating that unless he signed an Agreed Behavioural Contract governing what he said about the club, he would not be issued with his season ticket.
In Duchatelet’s two-and-a-half years at the Valley, Charlton have had six permanent managers, taking in two spells by Jose Riga and the sacking of club hero Chris Powell. Fans were also unhappy after Meire compared them to customers of a restaurant or cinema, and seeming to mock the way they ‘cared’ about the club.
The Charlton Athletic fan accompanied by the chairman of the Charlton Athletic Supporters Trust Richard Wiseman, met with Eager and Mick Everett, the club’s head of match-day operations, who then withdrew the request and granted his 2016/17 season ticket once he had apologised for comments made on social media.
