Peter Varney backs football reform proposals

Former Charlton Chief Executive Peter Varney has this week published his support for an independent regulator for football as recommended in Tracey Crouch MP's fan-led review.

"Fans generally have little say in the ownership of their clubs and how they are run and there have been so many examples in recent years of clubs gambling everything for success and putting their very existence at risk."

"Make no mistake the governing bodies for football in this country are resistant to change and always have been so they will want to self-regulate as much as they can, but the Government must make this independent regulation become a reality sooner rather than later."

CAST would like to encourage all football fans to write to their MP in order to maintain the pressure which will be necessary to ensure that the recommendations of the review will be translated into legislation. Further details and a template letter can be found here:
