Sports minister Tracey Crouch has warned the Football Association that it may face funding cuts if it does not reform. New governance codes are currently being discussed between the government and national governing bodies of sports in the United Kingdom, with new public funding rounds beginning next year.However, with the FA being accused of standing still on the issue of reform, Crouch has threatened to cut their funding, even suggesting it could be redistributed to county football associations who have accepted the need to make changes. Weve made it clear that all sports governing bodies have to reform their governance codes, Crouch told the BBC. Departed chairman Greg Dyke tried to push through reform during his tenure The FA is not excluded from that and, if they dont, they wont get public funding. Its as simple as that.I could not be more clear about how I want to see governing bodies perform. The FA gets between £30 - £40m of funding and that can go elsewhere. Sam: Euro 2016 can be positive Sam Allardyce wants his players to use Euro 2016 as motivation Crouch, a qualified FA coach, wants to see the grassroots level of football continue to be supported and could therefore look to give funding to county football associations instead.Im not shy to say to the FA if you dont reform your governance structures, I will give that money to other bodies that deliver football, she added. Former Football League chairman Greg Clarke has been nominated as the new chairman That can include county FAs if they have reformed governance structures at county level. I will take it away from the centre and give it to the counties - at the end of the day, public money goes to growing football.I think it is really important that public money goes into the grassroots of the game. I want to see continued investment in football but it has to be done in line with proper reforms at the top. Sam Allardyce was appointed the new England manager on Friday New public funding rounds begin in 2017 so I want to see progress happen very quickly - I appreciate reforming an entire structure is not going to happen overnight but if the direction of travel is in the right place then they may well continue to get their funding. Tracey Crouch says the FA could risk funding cuts if it does not reform If theres no move whatsoever, and at the moment we are seeing nothing from the FA in terms of progress, they are likely to lose some public money or it will go elsewhere in the delivery of football.
