Football clubs are a vital part of their local communities and must be protected, as we work to recover from the coronavirus pandemic.

The Government continues to have regular discussions with the football authorities on the future direction of the sport, and how to ensure it is sustainable. We are currently deciding on the scope and structure of the fan-led review of football governance, and will announce details of this in due course.
