Call for disabled Londoners to shape a more diverse future for football

The London Football Association (LFA) is giving disabled Londoners a unique opportunity to have their say in shaping a more diverse future for football in the capital following a transformational overhaul of its Board.

As the largest of the County Football Associations, the LFA is inviting applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply for a range of new Non-Executive Board positions to ensure that London’s football community provides greater representation of the communities it serves.  The move, which follows The FA’s own governance initiative earlier this year, will also help the LFA develop a more inclusive and sustainable future for the sport in the city.

The LFA’s corporate governance reforms comply with Sport England’s Code for Sports Governance, which was launched in May 2017 to ensure the highest levels of transparency are present in all sports.

The new LFA positions include three independent Non-Executive Directors, six Football / Sport Directors and one Finance & Risk Director. They will act as ‘Champions of Business’ through their diverse skills, experience and backgrounds, applying their independent expertise to the LFA Board. Applications should be sent to gamechanger@londonfa.com by 5pm on 10 September 2017.
