Jo Stevens responds to publication of the fan-led review of football governance

Jo Stevens MP, Labour’s Shadow Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Secretary, responding to the publication of the fan-led review of football governance, said:

“We’re pleased that the report supports Labour’s longstanding call for an independent regulator. Now there’s consensus on this, the Government has got to get on with it immediately.

“Overall, the Crouch review recommendations are welcome, but we still need to see more focus on fans’ voices in the governance reforms.

“No one wants to see another Bury or Wigan because of government delay.

“Fans have waited eleven long years for reform and deserve so much better.”
