The #SayNoToLeague3 campaign has caught the imagination of thousands of football fans, supporters' trusts, groups and others campaigning in the game.
Below is a selection of articles and statements from clubs, supporters' trusts and other fans organisations against League 3, B-Teams and Strategic Loan Partnerships.
This is a campaign that was created by the grassroots - fans of who care about the game and want to see things change. So thanks go to Nicola, James, Mitch and Lewis, and also Tom, for all the work they've done are are doing to make sure that the issue doesn't disappear off the agenda. This is the campaign that they created. Thank you from all of us.
