Time to get tough on football authorities, say MPs.
Supporters Direct reports that an all-party parliamentary group (APPG) of MPs has called on the Government to take urgent action to improve the way that football club owners behave towards supporter groups.
An APPG Special Hearing – Football Report (called “What is the vision for the future of supporter-owned football clubs?”) [link to a PDF of the document] of the attitudes the Football Association, Premier League and Football League exhibit towards the ownership of clubs, MPs have called for them to be directed to protect the interests of supporters. The objective of the hearing was to look at the current state of football supporters’ trusts and what assistance they need to develop further.
