    Manifesto commitments to football regulation

    Posted by crumpsall on 13/6/2024, 11:56:53

    This from the Labour manifesto (with thanks to Fair Game):

    Labour is committed to making Britain the best place in the world to be a football fan. We will reform football governance to protect football clubs across our communities and to give fans a greater say in the way they are run. We will introduce a Football Governance Bill, which will establish an independent regulator to ensure financial sustainability of football clubs in England. We will never allow a closed league of select clubs to be siphoned off from the English football pyramid.


    I imagine the Conservative manifesto will echo that, politicians seem to be waking up to football being important to communities and therefore a vote winner.

    Good to see Hillsborough Law re accountability included in the Labour manifesto too.

      Hopefully part of the remit will be the outlawing of undisclosed fees and undisclosed contract lengths…

        Even if it does happen, it'll end up being a very watered down version. There's too much money involved for the big clubs not get their own way.

          Yep, but now's the time to get some governmental commitment - otherwise the game is fucked, though it may be anyhow.

          Did you see your mate Noel Gallagher's comment?

          “I couldn't care less if a Man City 'customer' in New Jersey wants to see a game. Get off your f***ing arse and come to Manchester, then. Why are we talking about schlepping out to Abu Dhabi for a League Cup Final, FA Cup Finals in Bangkok?

          It (football) will change drastically in the next decade and, 20 years from now, it will be unrecognisable. Once there are 14 American owners in the Premier League, it's over. “They will vote for no relegation. There will be rule changes and all sorts of mad s***..."

          "Honestly, the Americanisation of football is not good for the game. It will be a slow erosion. And we are going to be powerless to stop them...'


          (In The Athletic. Mind you, he's an apologist for the murderous owners club too I think...)

            I did mate, read it the other day. He's spit on. His brother has made comments aswell about how he doesn't really enjoy watching City nowadays as its all about the money and the club he knew is gone.
            Talking of which, we're off to that new arena near City's ground to watch Liam on Sunday. Having a wander round the NQ first.
            I believe you were in the old Mother Macs pub the other day. What's it like now? Leather elbow patch central or do they do lager aswell?!

              It's good mate. Quite a few lagers, but the Hippy's pint of Paulener was £6.20! Whereas my pint of Old SmellySocks Bitter was £4.80.

              He said that new arena was brilliant - him and Manchester Hatter went to see Elbow there. Not my cup of tea really

                Nice one, we'll give it a go.
                I've heard good things about the arena, now they've sorted out all the fuck ups when it first opened!

        TBH, that's the one thing that doesn't concern me, if the greedy clubs want to piss off to a European Super Duper league let them go

                  If Starmer fixes football's woes it will be little comfort when he has unleashed more lefty lunatic plans like removing the tax break on private schools and opened the floodgates for even more immigration than the current clowns.

                        Have you any idea how funny it sounds, after the last fourteen years, for you to be trying to use scare stories about what Labour might do?

                        This is a positive story about both of the main parties!

                        Just had a look - this is what is in there.

                        At the core of our national and
                        local identities is culture and sport.

                        We are proud of our investment in grassroots
                        sports across the country, with over £320
                        million being delivered between 2021 and
                        2025 to build, renovate and maintain grass
                        pitches and, multi-sport facilities. We will
                        maintain this pace of investment over the next
                        Parliament through the continuation of the
                        Multi-Sport Grassroots Facilities Programme.
                        We will look to expand the criteria to ensure
                        more sports benefit from this investment. We
                        will introduce laws to ensure our fans never
                        again face the threat of clubs in England
                        joining breakaway closed-shop competitions
                        and giving them more of a voice through the
                        Independent Football Regulator.

                        The Conservative Party stands up for women
                        and girls in sport. We delivered equal access
                        for grassroots sporting facilities for women and
                        girls, the £30 million Lionesses Futures Fund,
                        established the Board of Women’s Sport and
                        are implementing recommendations from the
                        Carney Review of Women’s Football. We will
                        prioritise equal access for women and girls
                        in our ongoing programme of investment in
                        grassroots sports facilities.

                          It is slightly annoying that they could have done this in the last parliament, but chose to dissolve for this election before passing the bill.
                          So it's basically doing the same thing they promised they'd do before.

                                If I was a commie, why would I be quoting the Labour Party manifesto?

                                It's the most centrist Labour Party since Blair's time. And the Tories will be including similar in their manifesto, no doubt (as I've already said)

                                Surely you're not trying to turn an important initiative for the future of football in this country, including our club, into an opportunity to make a tired and inaccurate personal jibe? No-one is actually that feeble, are they?
