A new independent body to monitor club owners and directors and to deal with on and off-the-field discipline will be set up under wide-reaching proposals to reform English football.

The proposal to set up the FA Regulatory Authority (FARA) is contained in the football authorities' co-ordinated response to the Government's call for better governance in the game. It also suggests setting up a new club licensing system and to cut the number of FA board members from 14 to eight or 12.

The Football Association, Premier League, Football League and the amateur game have submitted the proposals jointly. Their response states: "The FARA will be responsible for the operation of the disciplinary procedures for on and off-field offences and for ensuring that the penalties applied adhere to the highest regulatory standards."
