FSA: Independent Regulator Plans Leaked To Press

6 Feb 2023 | 2 comments

A big announcement on reform to football governance – including an independent regulator – has been imminent for some time and yesterday details were leaked to the press. More info is expected next week.

FSA chief exec Kevin Miles said: “The reports indicate that many of our ideas are included in the White Paper – stronger tests on potential club owners, more supporter engagement, blocks on breakaway competitions like the European Super League and the establishment of an independent regulator.”

    I have read the whole thing but I don’t see anything mentioning championship, or all of our league clubs, other than Premier League giving more money to them. Not much in there to help clubs in the championship or lower league is there? They’ve been disregarded in the whole proceeding yet again.

      Thanks for your comment WayCoolBlue. It is frustrating that the Premier League always seems to attract attention, but it is fully expected that the measures likely to be announced on Wednesday will be of relevance across the whole professional football pyramid. It will be a major surprise if that is not the case. So all clubs in the EFL for example, including our own, will be subject to the measures if eventually approved by Parliament. Blues Trust.
