To ask Her Majesty's Government what discussions they have had with the Football Association about how that organisation can improve on issues of racial diversity.
23 November 2020
The Government welcomed the launch of the Football Association’s (FA) ‘Football Leadership Diversity Code’ to ensure English football better represents our modern and diverse society.
Ministers discussed the Code with the FA, as well as other matters including tackling discrimination, in a football roundtable on 17th November 2020.
There is still more to do, however, and the Government will continue to liaise closely with the football authorities to improve diversity in the sport.
