    Petition goes live

    Posted by Silverstone Hatter on 7/7/2019, 22:59:58

    Hi outlaws

    A weeks back I created a petition - calling for a change in the law regarding football club ownership, the fit and proper person test is not fit for purpose etc. There had been quite a few posted before - but none of them asking for a law change - hence they didnít get published.

    Mine has now been published!

    I missed that they had emailed me on the 27th June as they originally said 2 weeks - it turned out to be more like 6-8 weeks. Therefore it has had a very slow start!

    Can you please share the link to all of your football contacts - Especially at lower league level.

    Like I said at the time - we are lucky to have 2020 - plenty of others are not.

      I was at the inaugural AGM of the Football Supporters Association last weekend and this is high on their list of priorities. MP Mathieson is on board and tabling a ten minute bill in parliament in readiness for possible lack of action by the FA and PL/EFL. Meetings with those bodies are in hand.

          Have you thought about how this will affect the ownership of our club?

            I do not think it will have any affect on our club - we have one of the best run clubs in the country - but 10 years ago, we were in a very different position. Since then there hasnít been significant change, every year there seems to be multiple clubs in trouble, usually driven into trouble from the Ďfit and properí person. The EFL/FA are not safeguarding the clubs they represent.

            If successful, the debate will shine a light onto the EFL/FA enablement of non fit and proper persons, hedge funds, liquidators and bankrupt directors taking control of clubs. I donít think the government will change the law on football club ownership - but I think it will cause the government to ask the EFL/FA to improve their fit and proper rules and take more of a role in making sure the clubs that they supposedly represent are being run properly.

            I get frustrated every time I read yet another club threatened with liquidation/receivership etc, and the EFL/FA effectively saying it has F-All to do with them, yet they enable by having a test that doesnít protect the clubs.

            When Coventry, Bury, Bolton, Blackpool and Birmingham all had problems in the latter part of the season - I looked to sign up to a petition asking for change to the f&p and found that others had tried to raise this type of petition - but were unsuccessful as they only asked the government to change the F&P test - this is not a government department - hence they cannot change the law.

            As above - the petition has to call for a law change or it isnít eligible - in reality it is unlikely become a new law - however if the petition gets enough signatures - it has to be debated - therefore it puts pressure on the footballing bodies to take more responsibility over club ownership.

            The government have in the past told companies/trade bodies to change or they will step in - the betting machines in the bookies being one example.

              What I'm saying is that we got lucky with 2020, but would this petiton deny, say, Bury of getting similar owners?

              I'm all for proper supporter representation, and in an ideal world 2020 and LTST would be one and the same.
