FA launch ‘cultural review’ into its para football teams after grievances were reported by players 

  • FA technical director has asked England’s disability players to complete a survey
  • Les Reed’s questions include subjects such as bullying and discrimination
  • Nature of grievances is not known but FA consider the matter as serious

 The FA have launched a ‘cultural review’ of its para football teams after concerns were raised by players.

As part of the investigation, Les Reed, the FA’s technical director, has asked England’s disability players to complete a survey which includes questions asking if they have ever experienced bullying or discrimination.

The exact nature of the grievances reported are not known, but they have been deemed serious enough for the FA to ask UK Sport to assess the results of their internal review and make recommendations.

An FA spokesperson confirmed: ‘The FA is currently undertaking a cultural review across our para football teams in collaboration with UK Sport.

‘This review follows some recent anonymised concerns that were raised to us about the culture within para football.

‘Although these concerns have not been raised as formal complaints, we still take them very seriously and have quickly begun a confidential process to better understand the full nature of these matters and to offer support to anyone who needs it.’
