Government to introduce independent football regulator in England after backing fan-led review

The government says it will establish an independent regulator in football after endorsing recommendations made in the fan-led review into the men's game.

The regulator will have power to sanction clubs in English football who break financial and other rules.

A new owners test will be introduced and legislation will give fans more say in the running of the game.

It comes after the review made 10 recommendations to government on how to improve football governance last year.
