FA Chief Executive Joins Football Foundation Board

Tue 28th Jul 2015 | Football Governance

The Football Association’s Chief Executive, Martin Glenn, has joined the Board of the Football Foundation as a Trustee.

Mr Glenn replaces Jonathan Hall as one of The FA’s two nominated Trustees on the seven-member Foundation Board after Mr Hall announced that he was stepping down following six years as a Trustee for the UK’s largest sports charity.

Gary Hoffman, Chairman of the Football Foundation, said: “On behalf of the Foundation Board and all the Executive staff, I would like to thank Jonathan Hall for everything he has done for football since he joined The FA in 2004, but especially for the time and effort he has given to his role as a Football Foundation Trustee since January 2009.

“It is now broadly accepted that the need for better facilities, together with improved coaching at the right levels, is the key challenge facing our national game at the grass roots level, and the Foundation’s role is to ensure that funding provided by the Premier League, The FA and the Government is properly and efficiently focused towards where it is most needed and where it will have the greatest impact. 

“I would like to welcome Martin onto the Foundation Board to help steer football’s capital investment plans, which is so important to the future of football in this country.”

Martin Glenn, Chief Executive of The FA, said: “I am delighted to be joining the Board of the Football Foundation.  Having played and coached at the grassroots for many years, investing in better facilities and opening up opportunities to play the game is something that I am personally very passionate about.

“I look forward to continuing this vital work in the highly successful partnership we have developed with the Premier League and Government through the Foundation over the last 15 years.”
