Football League Acts On Directors Appointments!

By: Bill Osborne
Date: 11/06/2004

The Football League has introduced the Fit and Proper Persons test for Club Directors. Sir John Smith, recommended it in 1996, and the Football Task-Force recommended it in 1999.

The new rules will make it a breach of Football League regulations for the following to be a director or hold a majority interest in a Football League club:

  • Anyone subject to a ban from a Sports Governing Body relating to the administration of that sport.

  • Anyone with an unspent conviction relating to fraud or dishonesty.

  • Anyone that is disqualified from acting as a director of a UK registered company.

  • Anyone currently subject to a Bankruptcy Order.

  • Anyone who has been a Director of a club that has been in administration twice during a five-year period or a Director of two different clubs that have each gone into administration in a five-year period.

    All current League club directors will provide The League with a declaration by July 31st indicating that they meet the above criteria and as such are a fit and proper person to hold office at a League club. All new Directors will have to sign a similar declaration on appointment.
