Petition Review the need for a statutory owners and Directors Test in Football
The recent news that Wigan athletic was being put into administration just weeks after new owners were approved by the EFL must lead to a review of the effectiveness of the owners and Directors test and it's use by the EFL
At present, the test does not seem to be fit for purpose to protect football clubs in the future. If English football isn't able to act,the government should review the need for a statutory owners and Directors test to ensure it is fit for purpose and protects clubs in the future".
