The government is implementing all the recommendations for the fan-led review into football, and has today announced reforms including a new independent regulator, to put fans at the heart of football.
- Football is nothing without its fans and for too long the football authorities have collectively been unable to tackle some of the biggest issues in the game.
- That is why we conducted the fan-led review promised in our manifesto, chaired by Tracey Crouch. Today we have endorsed every one of its ten strategic recommendations, including: establishing a new regulator, which will have power to investigate and sanction clubs in English football who break financial and other rules; and a new owners test will be introduced to give fans more say in the running of clubs.
- We are making sure there is a greater role for fans in the day-to-day running of the football clubs they love – protecting clubs and the central role they play as vital assets for their local communities.
