Brentford FC Statement: Project Big Picture

Update after meetings yesterday on proposal to reform English football

14 October 2020

Along with all Sky Bet Championship clubs, Brentford FC can confirm we attended an initial high-level briefing on Project Big Picture yesterday morning. The EFL confirmed its position after the meeting yesterday, following a statement by EFL Chair Rick Parry at the weekend on proposals for the future of English Football, called Project Big Picture.

It is our view a number of the headline proposals are positive and require further debate and we believe the timing is now right to look at developing a new long-term sustainable future for the entire English football pyramid.

Much of the press and public comment to date has been around governance matters away from the EFL environment. This is not for us to comment on and beyond our sphere of influence, but clearly needs addressing by the relevant stakeholders in order to move forward. We should not however lose sight of the many positives identified in the proposal and look forward to receiving further details and playing an active role in future discussions.

ENDS

Brentford FC
