Football governance delay announced by Government

Chi Onwurah

I have repeatedly raised with the Minister the impact on Newcastle United fans of the Premier League’s arrogance and lack of accountability, so I welcome his recognition of the need for reform.

Will he confirm whether this further delay is at the behest of the Premier League?

Does he agree that it is unacceptable for the Premier League to stand in the way of football fans, and that it is particularly distasteful given its policy director’s recent fine for partying while football fans, and indeed the rest of the country, were in lockdown?

It is unacceptable for the Premier League to stand in the way of change.  I have repeatedly raised the impact of their arrogance & lack of accountability on #NUFC fans, I asked Government whether Premier League had influenced the delay to reform of football governance announced today [no answer].
