Alison Brittain Appointed As Premier League Chairwoman

Alison Brittain has been appointed as the first female chairwoman of the Premier League, where she will take over from interim chairman, Peter McCormick, in 2023.

Brittian will bring her expertise in business leadership, after being the CEO of Whitebread, United Kingdom (UK), the oldest public hospitality company.

Brittain has also held senior executive roles in the financial sector with multiple organisations, including Barclays, Santander, and Lloyds.

Additionally, she is passionate about football and believes in the positive impact sport can have on society.

Commenting on her appointment, Brittain, said: “I have been a football fan since I was a child and so am absolutely delighted to be appointed Chair of the Premier League.”

“The game is of enormous national importance, is loved by so many people around the world and can have a tremendous positive impact on communities.

“It will be a real privilege to be able to help to develop plans for the future and work with all the key stakeholders in the game to ensure its long-term sustainability and success.

“I am looking forward to working with Chief Executive Richard Masters, the Board and the clubs as we work together to ensure the ongoing growth and global success of the Premier League,” she said.

The announcement comes after The Times reported the plans to ban Premier League clubs from having betting firms as shirt sponsors are being dropped by the UK government and will reach a voluntary agreement between clubs.
