FSF statement following FA Council meeting

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

FSF statement following FA Council meeting (Thursday 26th October 2017):

“As supporter representatives we welcome the honest discussion which was held at the FA Council yesterday. We support the Council’s commitment to further change to make the FA more diverse and inclusive at every level with appropriate policies and procedures to underpin this.

“We believe that change should not be limited to the FA but look at reform across the game and that the FA should be the body to lead these discussions. It essential that all stakeholders are fully involved in this change process including the supporters who we represent. We do not think removing the CEO and Chair of the FA is the answer – energy needs to be focused on delivering the promised reform.”
