CLUB: United join growing band of football clubs striving to change the game for good

United join Fair Game

12 June 2021

Carlisle United have today joined the coalition of football clubs working together to improve governance of football in England and Wales.

United have signed up to Fair Game, which already boasts AFC Wimbledon, Cambridge United, Exeter City, Grimsby Town, Luton Town and Newport County as members.

The group will be working together to find long-term solutions to governance structures, tackling sustainability, integrity and community issues currently in the game.

The coalition of clubs seek to influence and work with the Government's fan-led review, chaired by Tracey Crouch MP, to ensure the opportunity for fair, lasting change is taken.

Chief executive Nigel Clibbens said: “Football must be governed with fairness, openness and transparency at its core. We must work together in a way that helps the football pyramid prosper, so clubs continue to be a force for good within the heart of their communities.

"Of course football clubs are businesses, striving to win and the competitiveness of the game must remain, so clubs and competitions can thrive. We believe in constructive engagement within the game and this will help our voice be heard."
