access_time 2 weeks ago

Leyton Orient today welcome the outcomes of the review led by MP and former Sports Minister Tracey Crouch.

The review, which can be read here, has worked with supporters across the country to identify ways to reform football, and drive sustainability across the pyramid.

“We very much welcome the review led by Tracey Crouch,” said Chief Executive Danny Macklin. “Having read the document and executive summary, we support the proposals being made, and hope they can become a reality.”

“It’s important that everyone involved, namely the EFL, the Premier League and the government, get together as soon as possible to enact them in a constructive way for the sustainability of the game.”

“Club’s need to continue to be the focal point at the hearts of their communities, and the changes proposed are critical to clubs becoming sustainable, and installing fairness across the footballing pyramid that we are all so proud of.”

“The suggested introduction of a 10% levy for League One and Two clubs could be transformative to the finances of clubs at this level, and is a proposition we welcome more information on.

“Furthermore, the proposal of an independent regulator for the game is one that the club welcomes, and look forward to hearing more about.”

“We look forward to working with other clubs in the Fair Game community in driving this forward, in the hope that the sustainability index can be introduced.”

“We certainly support the direction of swift travel as football must reset itself for the greater good, but ultimately, it is time for actions to start speaking louder than words.”
