Fleet are Fair Game in fight for change

Ebbsfleet United have allied with a group of other football clubs around the country to work together to improve the governance of our game for the wider interests of the sport as a whole.

A new group called Fair Game launched last month with priorities including independent audits of clubs, more vigorous fit and proper person’s tests around ownership, greater supporter representation on club boards and governance with fairness and transparency at its core.

Fair Game’s growing number of involved clubs in addition to ourselves includes Luton Town, Accrington Stanley, Bury, Cambridge United, Grimsby Town, Newport County, AFC Wimbledon, Chester, Maidstone United and Tonbridge Angels.

The organisation’s core principles are sustainability, integrity, independent regulation and community.

With ambassadors including former England, Liverpool and Tottenham defender John Scales, Fair Game will seek to work with the government’s fan-led review, chaired by Tracey Crouch MP, to ensure the opportunity for fair, lasting change is taken and to empower clubs’ voices within the game.

Ebbsfleet United CEO Damian Irvine – who will serve as advisor to the organisation – said, “Given what we as a club and a wider football community have experienced the last 12 months, a sustainable, well-governed sport is something we all aspire to. With that in mind, Fair Game is absolutely the right vehicle to ensure mature, measured and meaningful debate and lobbying where needed. Their core principles mirror our own as a club and what we aim to reflect on behalf of our investors, partners and supporters.”
