UK minister slams football governance

Sports minister Hugh Robertson has branded football the worst governed sport in the UK.

Robertson told MPs the game was in need of urgent reform but that the Government would wait to see the contents of a Culture, Media and Sport select committee report before taking action.

He said: “Issues of football governance need attention and need action and that is precisely why the select committee has responded to levels of anxiety across the House and announced their investigation.

“If you look across sport, it is very clear to me that football is the worst governed sport in this country, without a shadow of a doubt.

“The levels of corporate governance that apply to football, a point often addressed by, lag far behind other sports and other sports are by no means beacons in this regard.

“So action is needed and the Government will take it but it wants to see the results of that select committee first.”
