James Sunderland backs the Government’s plans to radically reform the governance of men’s football in England, reiterating its commitment to fans to deliver a sustainable future for the game.

James said:

“As a football fan I am pleased that the Government is taking the lead to ensure proper governance of football clubs for the benefit of fans. For too long fans have not had sufficient say in their clubs and we must protect the Premier League and Football League.

Football is our national sport and must be protected to ensure a bright and successful future.”
