One of Shrewsbury Town's Supporter Liaison Officers, Mike Davis (right), is set to attend the Fan-led Review: One Year On meeting at Westminster on Tuesday 15th November.
The Fan-led Review of football governance aims to put football supporters at the heart of the game and we are proud to have someone there representing Shrewsbury Town.
What does the Fan-led Review propose?
● Regulation: an independent regulator for football (IREF) can prevent the recurrence of such developments as the proposed European Super League.
● Finance: football’s model is unsustainable with too many clubs making losses. Pre-emptive action is needed and a regulator will impose stronger financial controls.
● Engagement: proposals to embed democratic supporter organisations and engagement within the heart of domestic football.
● Heritage: football stadiums, club badges, location, colours and competitions all deserve special protections. Fans to have a veto on these assets at every club via a “golden share”.
● Reform: half of the FA Board should be made up of independent non-executive directors, to reduce elite club influence.
● Distribution: the removal of restrictions on FA spending meaning more money redirected towards grassroots, non-league and women’s football.
● Equality: equality, diversity and inclusion plans should be mandatory for all clubs.
● Women’s game: a new review has been set up to specifically explore the challenges facing the women’s game. Supporters have to be involved in that process.
