Club looking forward to the publication of the Fan led Review White Paper in to football governance

23 February 2023

Northampton Town Football Club is looking forward to the publication of the Fan led Review White Paper in to football governance.

We look forward to studying the detail but we are very pleased to see the publication of this White Paper following the recommendations of the previous Fan Led Review.

We placed our support for the findings of the Fan Led Review on record some time ago. As a club, we already have some of those recommendations in place, including a democratically elected supporters representative on the club's board of directors, which has been a big success.

We have engaged in discussions with our local MPs to express our support for the recommendations of the review and we strongly support greater regulation to protect the health of the football pyramid in this country.

The supporters’ elected representative on the club’s board of directors, Tom Cliffe, said: “From my conversations with supporters, it is clear there is a big support for greater football governance to protect the game in this country at all levels.

“At Northampton Town we are a special club at the very heart of the community we serve and we are at the very forefront of supporter representation but fans of other clubs may not have the same level of input into their clubs and it goes without saying that we back plans to protect the long term future of English football.

“We hope this will be a key moment in the history of the game and help football in this country move towards a sustainable future.”
