We are an organisation of value-driven clubs, supported by world-renowned experts and backed by leading politicians. Our aim is to transform football for the better. We want a sport where every fan can put their shirt on in the morning proud in what it stands for, safe in the knowledge that the traditions and heritage of their club will always be there.
The advocacy team is an essential part of Fair Game as we look to increase our influence among politicians.
Football is entering a now or never moment on its future. The incoming Independent Regulator and Football Bill represents a golden chance to change the game we love for the better. It is now in the hands of politicians. This role will play an essential part in shaping the direction of that debate in parliament.
