Peter McCormick OBE named as new Chairman of the FSIF

Wed 8th Feb 2012 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

The Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF) has announced that Peter McCormick OBE has been appointed as its new Chairman.

Funded with £6m p.a. from the Premier League, the FSIF is the country’s largest provider of grants towards projects that help improve the comfort and safety of lower league football grounds in both the professional and amateur game. These improvements range from new football stands and turnstiles to floodlighting and improved provision for disabled supporters.

Mr McCormick had been acting Chairman of the FSIF since previous Chairman Clive Sherling stepped down from the role in March 2011. Mr McCormick has been a Director since 2008. He is also a Trustee of the Football Foundation.

Peter McCormick said: “I am delighted to have been appointed Chairman. FSIF helps clubs in 92 league competitions, involving nearly 1,700 clubs throughout the country. It is a privilege to be part of that essential work.”

David Dent, Chairman of the Stadium Improvement Panel, added: “I am delighted that Peter McCormick has agreed to serve as FSIF Chairman. He brings with him a wealth of industry knowledge and experience and has a real passion for the game.”
