Standing Up for Football Fans
Standing Up for Football Fans

Football clubs are more than businesses. In my previous role as Shadow Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, I called for football to be put on a stable footing, with an independent regulator and a proper say for fans.

Football reform has support across Parliament, and across the country but it has taken over 15 months for the Government to finally publish a football white paper. In this time, Derby County nearly went under, Oldham Athletic was relegated, Chelsea changed hands and Manchester United, Newcastle, Liverpool and Bournemouth were all put up for sale. The Premier League and EFL still haven’t reached a deal on finances. And now a European Super League 2.0 is back on the table.

As football fans we are desperate for a say on the future of our clubs and the game. We can ‘t afford further delays. The Government should urgently bring forward legislation, or take responsibility for any clubs that go under, spiral into decline or which are bought by unsuitable new owners.
