A better future for English football
Today, following the fan-led review, the government set out a bold plan to protect the long-term future of English football, giving football fans and their clubs greater protection as we put fans at the heart of football and protect clubs to ensure they are there for years to come.
- Football is nothing without its fans, and for too long the football authorities have collectively been unable to support them in tackling some of the biggest issues in the game.
- That is why the Conservative government is implementing the recommendations from the Fan-Led Review of Football Governance. A new independent regulator for the men’s elite game will be established and fans will be guaranteed a greater say in the strategic running of their clubs.
- These reforms will ensure fans are placed at the heart of football clubs and protect the heritage of our loved football clubs against unscrupulous owners. This will help to grow local economies, delivering on the Government’s five priorities and build a better future across the country.
