Following the publication of the final report of the Government Expert Working Group on Supporter Ownership and Engagement, supporters of professional clubs across the country will have more opportunities to bid to own their football clubs when suitable opportunities arise, and will also meet with their clubs at least twice a year to discuss issues important to them, Sports Minister Tracey Crouch announced today.
The Premier League, The Football League, National League and FA boards have endorsed the report alongside Supporters Direct and the Football Supporters Federation.
Additionally, the revised Insolvency Policy announced by The Football League in June has helped the Expert Working Group to achieve a number of its objectives on removing barriers to supporter ownership.
Sports Minister Tracey Crouch said:
“Supporters are the lifeblood of the clubs they support but over time there has been a growing disconnect between them and those that run their clubs. So it was right that government set up this group and brought the football authorities and supporters together to see what more can be done for clubs to engage with fans.
