Gosport MP, Caroline Dinenage, has welcomed the news that the Fan Led Review of Football Governance has been published today.
The fan-led football review –promised in the 2019 General Election which Caroline was re-elected in – is a comprehensive examination of the English football system with the aim of exploring ways of improving the governance, ownership and financial sustainability of clubs in the football pyramid, building on the strengths and benefits that our great game already provides the nation.
The review was chaired by Tracey Crouch MP, who was Minister for Sport between May 2015 and 2018.
“Football is part of our national DNA. This review explores ways to improve governance, ownership & financial sustainability of clubs in the football pyramid.
The Government are now working to deliver an independent regulator – the primary recommendation of the report.”
In a written statement, Culture Minister Nadine Dorries said:
“The Government welcomes the work of the Review and will now consider the detailed recommendations ahead of providing a full Government response in Spring 2022.
The Review demonstrates that there are fundamental issues with our national sport, and that this merits radical reform. Fans across the country want and deserve that reform.”
