Terms of Reference fo the Fan-led review of British Football
Whilst just about everyone has warmly welcomed the decision by all six Premier League clubs to withdraw from the European Super League, the government remains committed to ensuring football is run for the fans.
That is why a fan-led review – run by Tracey Crouch MP - will look closely at the issues of governance, ownership and finance and take the necessary steps to retain the game’s integrity, competitiveness and, most importantly, the bond that clubs have with its supporters and the local community.
Football is for the fans, and the government is unequivocally on their side. Our review will ensure fans’ voices are heard when it comes to the future of our cherished national game.
