MUST response to reports Government could pause plans for an independent regulator for football

A report in The Times suggests the Government may pause plans for an independent regulator for football.

A spokeperson for MUST commented:

"The Independent Regulator was first proposed by Government in the aftermath of the reviled European Super League plan which would have torn English football apart. The speculation that the new Prime Minister may ditch the proposal is therefore deeply alarming."

"Boris Johnson promised a legislative bomb to protect our game. Liz Truss appears to have defused that threat to the Premier League’s billionaire owners."

"Supporters will want urgent reassurance that those commitments to defend our game, made by the previous PM, still stand."
