Independent regulator for English football 英国政府考虑设立足球监管机构

在公开赞同由球迷主导的男足审查报告所提出的建议后,英国政府表示将设立一个独立的足球监管机构。该监管机构将有权制裁违反财务及其它条例的英格兰足球俱乐部。

Whether it's clubs such as Bury going bust, Derby's current financial problems or the 'big six' wanting to form a breakaway super league, the government's view is football needs protecting, at times from itself.

无论是像贝里这样的足球俱乐部面临破产、德比郡目前的财务问题,还是英超 “六大豪门” 想要脱离联赛、单独成立一项超级联赛,面对这些足坛危机,英国政府的看法是:足球需要保护,有时甚至需要保护其免受自身的伤害。

It wants English football to have an independent regulator to keep spending under control, and it wants fans to have more of a say in how their club is run – from the location of a new stadium to changes in kit colour. And anyone wanting to own a football club should not only face financial background checks but scrutiny of their integrity.

英国政府希望英格兰足球联赛能由一个独立的监管机构来控制支出,并就俱乐部的运营方式,从新球场的地点到球衣颜色的变化等方面,赋予球迷更多的话语权。而任何想要拥有一家足球俱乐部的人,不仅应接受财务背景调查,还应接受审查,以确认其品行端正。

These proposals could take time to become law – if they do at all. And they're expected to face opposition from some in the game who fear change could affect the competitive balance or levels of investment.

这些提议就算有可能成为正式法规,也需要时间。预计新建议将面临一些足坛人士的反对,他们担心变化可能会影响竞争平衡和投资水平。
