On Sunday, Charlton Athletic fans and the protest groups have prepared what are understood to be large scale protests against Charlton’s controversial owner, Roland Duchatelet. Charlton fans have taken to Twitter to make clear why they will end their boycott and return to protest.

The umbrella protest organisation CARD, have plans in place for a final effective and large-scale protest once again, on the final day of the season, but this time in the league below, due to the failure and ineptness of the ownership at Charlton Athletic.

They are issuing a rallying cry to all boycotters to return in their numbers on the 30th April to take part in the large protests and demonstrations. CARD have asked all fans who oppose the Duchatelet ownership to meet outside the large Charlton Athletic badge at the rear of the north stand for 11am, in black and white (protest colours) attire. More details of the demonstration outside the stadium will be revealed on the morning of the 30th April.

The protest organisation is encouraging anyone who is planning on attending the game to purchase tickets in the lower West Stand, which hosts the executive box, which will hold attendance of the Charlton Athletic board, including the Chief Executive Officer, Katrien Meire on the day.

On Thursday evening, CARD’s Twitter account asked all Charlton fans to make clear the reasons for why they are protesting on Sunday, using the hashtag, endgame (#endgame).

Fans responded in great numbers, and the days building up to Sunday can only be seen as the calm before the storm which will loom over The Valley. Fans are preparing to protest in large numbers, and not only show their discontent for Roland Duchatelet, but also the passionate and large fan base which exists at Charlton and can be constructively utilised by new prospective owners.
