Save football now! Don't Bench the Bill

Commit to introducing a new Football Bill in the first session of the next parliament

Why is this important?

THERE is no doubt that football is broken.

With the announcement of the General Election, the Football Governance Bill, which would have introduced a new Independent Regulator for Football, fell.

But this now represents an opportunity to address the serious flaws that were in it.

We need a Bill that will tackle the growing financial inequality in the game, that ensures the regulator is truly independent, protects the heritage of clubs, champions equality and the environment, and properly consults fans and clubs.

It is now up to the next Government to pick up the mantle and deliver a fairer future for football. 

For the sake of fans and clubs up and down the country we need all parties to make a firm commitment that a new Bill is brought forward in the first session of the next government - a Bill that is fit for purpose.

How it will be delivered

The petition will be sent to all the leaders of the main parties a few days before the General Election.
