EFL Statement: Football Governance Bill

League call on all parties to commit to a continuation of the bill

7 June 2024

At its summer meeting, EFL clubs were provided with a comprehensive update on the status of the Football Governance Bill after its progress in Parliament was halted following the announcement of next month’s general election.

Given the enthusiastic level of cross-party support prior to Parliament falling, the League is calling on all political parties to commit to a continuation of the bill within their manifestos when they are published.

EFL chair Rick Parry said: "We stand ready to work with the new government to ensure the bill is reintroduced and progressed as quickly as possible in the new Parliament.

"It was disappointing it was lost because of the election – however, it is critical that this is only a short delay as the underlying systemic issues remain.

"We believe there is a timely opportunity for the incoming government to take positive and decisive action to ensure that football has a financially sustainable future due to the importance professional clubs are to their communities and the people they serve.”
