The Government welcomes the Independent Fan-Led Review of Football Governance and has endorsed in principle the primary recommendation of the review: that football requires a strong, independent regulator to secure the future of our national game.

The Government will continue to engage with interested parties as we work towards issuing a full response to the report in Spring 2022.
