A Supporter Liaison Officer (SLO) provides a formal link between supporters and their football club, advocating for the best possible match night experience at home and away games and recognising the importance of fans to the Beautiful Game.
Developed originally in Germany, the role was introduced to European football by UEFA and since included in FAI licensing requirements. SLOs are not part of security activities; instead, they seek to build trusting and respectful relations with all key stakeholders by liaising with all supporters.
Further information about the role across Europe can be found here.
The Cork City FC SLOs aim to ensure that all supporters have an enjoyable experience when they visit Turner’s Cross on match nights.
Having more than one SLO means having more assistance available to all supporters but it will also allow the role to develop as the club needs it to in the coming years.
Our SLOs are happy to advise supporters around match night information, away travel and raise any issues that are of concern to supporters with the club / board as appropriate.
The Cork City FC SLOs will also be on duty at home games and also away games where possible. Make sure to say “Hello!”
