National League Statement About Independent Review Panel

The National League Board established an Independent Review Panel in November, chaired by David Bernstein, to meet the League’s commitment to keep its payment schedule for vital Club grant-aid under review.

The Panel has made its report to the Board last week, which contained some constructive points concerning the methodology of distributing grant funding between Clubs, and which followed the input of member Clubs who were mainly supportive of the distribution method employed to date.

The Board is still seeking clarification from the Panel on the content of its report, and once the Board has received such further information, it will take whatever steps are necessary.

Once this process is complete the full report and background information will be shared with all interested parties.
