Our initial thoughts on the fan-led review into football governance...


The Supporters Trust broadly welcomes the recommendations of Tracey Crouch's fan-led review into football governance.

The Trust played a full part in the review and addressed the panel directly on the prevalent lack of transparency at many clubs.

The need for an independent regulator is paramount. A regulator would hopefully ensure that all clubs sign up to a licensed charter which requires the need for them to be run on accountable, transparent and sustainable lines.

The creation of a diverse shadow board of supporters will also give supporters a far greater and meaningful say in the running of their clubs, which are significant community assets.

Fans are major stakeholders and deserving of a clear voice.

A fairer distribution of monies from television and the Premier League is also vital in working towards a more realistic and viable financial model which will place more clubs on a greater sustainable footing.

We will be making a more detailed statement following our December board meeting, once we have studied the full report.
