Dear [MP]

I am writing to ask you to pledge your support for Early Day Motion 79, tabled on 20 November 2023 by Ian Byrne M.P. regarding the recent Premier League Commission’s sanctions imposed on Everton Football Club.

Evertonians will understand that the Club has been found guilty of breaching the Profit & Sustainability Rules and that appropriate sanctions need to be applied.  However, the notion that a Premier League Commission can award such a severe penalty without any transparency or justification at how it reached its decision, not only unfairly punishes Everton supporters, but potentially has implications for football fans across the country, if this arbitrary approach continues to be adopted.

It demonstrates the urgent need to bring forward the introduction of the Government’s plans, and to immediately establish an Independent Football Regulator that can ensure equitable and fair governance of our game is in place and that the interests of supporters everywhere are protected.

I therefore ask, as your constituent, that you please add your name to the Early Day Motion and play your part in safeguarding the future of this beautiful game.

Yours sincerely,

[Your Name]
