Next week MPs will be debating the future of the FA and we’ve teamed up with Vote Football once again to help fans lobby their MPs.

On Thursday 9th February the House of Commons will debate a motion brought by Damian Collins MP, chair of the Media and Sport Select Committee, on pushing through Government-led reform of the FA.

The FSF and Vote Football hope as many MPs turn up and contribute to the debate as possible. So we’re now giving you the opportunity to contact their MP directly on the matter.

Supporters can contact their constituency MP directly via the Vote Football webpage, which generates an email to the MP after selecting your football club and entering a postcode.

“The debate has been initiated by the CMS Select Committee in response to the failure of the FA to reform itself, despite repeatedly committing to do so over many years,” Vote Football said.

“Governments of all political persuasions have threatened to reform the FA if it fails to do so itself, and we agree with the CMS Committee that that time has now come.”
