After recent consultation by the BAFA Board of Directors, we are delighted to confirm a Corporate Governance Modernisation Programme has been agreed.

The programme, confirmed on February 28th, will include the following key features:

  • The installation of Vice/Honorary Directorships to support the profile of British American Football nationally and internationally
  • A restructure of the current Directorate to support a discipline focus
  • Formalisation of the new Directorate to perform strategically with a new Operational 'Workstream' team empowered to deliver programmes
  • The installation of 'Nations with BAFA' team to create Whole Sport Plan representation for England, Scotland, N.Ireland and Wales
  • Inclusion into the WSP to progress to an Operational Directorate according to a prescribed schedule

BAFA Chairman, Gary Marshall, commented, “Recent consideration of research documents provided by government agencies has highlighted a known fact that the BAFA were challenged to deliver programmes operationally. The agreement by the BAFA Board to a Modernisation Programme addresses these issues and it is hoped that the new structure will give confidence to both private and public sector organisations to invest in our sport in the coming months and years”.

BAFA Whole Sport Plan Manager, Ken Walters, added, “A number of new voluntary roles to support the Corporate Governance Modernisation Programme will have to be created. These roles will be compliant with our forthcoming Human Resources and Equity and Diversity policy as a minimum. More details of these voluntary roles will be made available on the BAFA website very soon”.
