The football authorities continue to work towards the final approval and implementation of the governance reform proposals as outlined in February 2012.
Significant headway has already been made on many of these proposed reforms, not least on sustainability and transparency. The remaining reform proposals are the subject of consultation within the game and we are confident that the necessary progress will be made.
