Parliament to Hold ‘No Confidence’ Debate in FA

February 6, 2017

The Football Association (FA) is to be the subject of a vote of no confidence in the British Parliament, after failing to reform in the desired direction.

The Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee will examine whether the FA can “comply fully with its duties”, with a ruling due on February 9.

Committee chairman Damian Collins MP revealed on Friday that the FA had been given six months to meet the government guidance on best practice for sports governance but had failed to do so.

The lack of modernisation in the Football Association is expected to be addressed, with new legislation to be drawn up if required.
