Members of the FA Council[edit]

Controversy[edit]

The British Government expressed concern in 2016 over the governance of the FA, which receives £30 million p.a. public funding, in view of the fact that only eight women and four black and ethnic minorities are on the 122 strong FA Council. A proposal for reform was tabled in February 2017 by Greg Clarke, Chairman of the FA. Mr Clarke has threatened to resign if his reform proposals are not accepted.[1]
