The Premier League welcomes the publication of the Fan Led Review of Football Governance and would like to thank Tracey Crouch MP and the panel for the significant work they have undertaken.
We will study the extensive recommendations and will work with Government, fans, The FA, EFL, PFA and other football organisations on these important issues.
We recognise the vital importance of fans and the need to restore and retain their trust in football’s governance.
We also acknowledge the call for some form of independent regulation to protect English football’s essential strengths and the Premier League has already undertaken our own governance and strategic reviews. These will continue to progress together with the ongoing work of the Fan Led Review.
The Premier League, alongside English football as a whole, is a global success. We have an outstanding track record on and off the pitch, including the positive impact on youth development, communities and the wider game, of which we are proud.
It is important to everyone that any reforms do not damage our game, its competitive balance or the levels of current investment.
