FA response to the Government’s White Paper on club football governance

Saturday 04 Mar 2023
An Update From Our CEO, Mark Bullingham

FA Chief Executive, Mark Bullingham, said: "We welcome the publication of the White Paper, and its commitment to improving the financial sustainability and governance of professional clubs. 
"We will submit a full response to the proposals in the White Paper in the coming weeks. Our response will highlight a critical point made repeatedly by the Fan Led Review, which recommended that the professional game increases funding of the grassroots game. The players, referees, coaches and volunteers in grassroots football are the foundations of the English game, and it is important that an independent regulator recognises this and supports the long-term health of the whole game."
