Wigan Athletic Official Supporters’ Club (WAOSC) have launched a petition calling on the Government to back the formation of an independent regulator who could protect the future of all clubs:
"The recent news that Wigan Athletic was being put into administration just weeks after new owners were approved by the EFL must lead to a review of the effectiveness of the owners and directors test and its use by the EFL.
At present the test does not seem to be fit for purpose to protect football clubs in the future. If English football isn't able to act, the government should review the need for a statutory owners and directors test to ensure it is fit for purpose and protects clubs in the future".
CAST encourages all Charlton supporters to sign the petition:
