Motion text

That this House welcomes the introduction of the Football Sponsorship Levy Bill on 7th April 1998 which will enable the growing financial divide in football to be addressed; recognises the vital part that smaller league clubs play in their communities, and their massive contribution in nurturing and developing talented players who are tomorrow's potential stars; and notes that the smaller clubs serve millions of people in hundreds of constituencies and the redistribution of broadcasting income would help to support these clubs, and their fans, and ensure that a proportion of football wealth is invested for the future.

The first 6 Members who have signed to support the motion are the sponsors. The primary sponsor is generally the person who tabled the motion and has responsibility for it. The date shown is when the Member signed the motion.
