Wembley bosses need to implement these changes.
- Football authorities to work together to agree proposals by February 29 to be implemented at start of the 2012-13 season.
- The Football Association, working with the leagues, to bring in a licensing system that monitors debt levels and financial sustainability at clubs.
- The licensing system to be used to impose “robust” checks on prospective owners and directors of clubs.
- The FA board to be reformed to be made up of a chairman, general secretary, two further FA executives, two independent non-executive directors and two each from the professional and national game.
- The FA Council’s role should be changed so that committees report to FA board instead, with a maximum limit of eight years for council members.
- The football authorities should look at ways to encourage more fans on clubs’ boards.
- Clubs should be forced to release players for England duty at all age levels from under-17 upwards.
- Government warn if changes are not made they will “introduce a legal requirement on the Football Association to implement the appropriate governance clauses by the swiftest possible means”.
