Report highlights lack of public information on activities of FAs
21 November ~ Research by Transparency International has revealed that 81 per cent of football federations have no financial records available publicly. According to the report, only 14 associations out of 209 “publish the minimum amount of information necessary to let people know what they do, how they spend their money and what values they believe in”.
The research was divided into the four basic categories of information that should be available in order to monitor organisations’ governance and standard: financial accounts, codes of conduct, charters or statutes and information on activities. With one point given for each category that was available, 42 per cent of FAs scored zero.
