Jo Stevens – 2021 Comments on Football Governance

The comments made by Jo Stevens, the Shadow Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, on 24 November 2021.

We’re pleased that the report supports Labour’s longstanding call for an independent regulator. Now there’s consensus on this, the Government has got to get on with it immediately.

Overall, the Crouch review recommendations are welcome, but we still need to see more focus on fans’ voices in the governance reforms.

No one wants to see another Bury or Wigan because of government delay.

Fans have waited eleven long years for reform and deserve so much better.
