The FA Votes Yes To Burns Report Recommendations

By: Bill Osborne
Date: 30/05/2007

The Football Association Shareholders AGM today voted in favour of a new structure for The FA as recommended in the Burns Report and supporters will be represented.

Supporters Direct today issued the following statement in response to the news;

Chief Executive of SD, Phil French, said, "This vote is to be welcomed, although the delays have meant that the much needed reform now commences two years after the report was completed. Although in our view the proposals adopted by the FA Council today do not go nearly far enough, particularly in not more fully engaging with supporters' trusts, the appointment of an independent Chairman of the organisation will at least begin to provide some much needed balance in the organisation's strategic focus."

The major changes to The FA's structure are:

• Two independent members of The FA Board (Chief Executive and Independent Chairman) alongside five representatives from the professional game and five from the national game (down from six each)

• An expanded FA Council to better reflect the diversity of the game, with added representation for players, managers, referees, women's football, ethnic minorities and disability football, supporters, etc.

• A re-organisation of The FA's committee structure to streamline decision-making and better define areas of authority

• A semi-autonomous Football Regulatory Authority to govern the game, reporting to its own Board

• A new Funding Formula dividing The FA's profits 50:50 between the professional and national games
