FA Chairman Greg Clarke issues statement following resignation

The FA

As a person who loves football and has given decades of service to our game, it is right that I put the interests of football first.

2020 has been a challenging year and I have been actively considering standing down for some time to make way for a new Chair now our CEO transition is complete and excellent executive leadership under Mark Bullingham is established.

My unacceptable words in front of Parliament were a disservice to our game and to those who watch, play, referee and administer it. This has crystallised my resolve to move on.

I am deeply saddened that I have offended those diverse communities in football that I and others worked so hard to include.

I would like to thank my friends and colleagues in the game for the wisdom and counsel they have shared over the years and resign from the FA with immediate effect.
