The Chester Report

In June, 1966, the then Secretary of State for Education and Science, appointed Mr Norman Chester, CBE, as he then was (Warden of Nuffield College), to chair an Enquiry. His terms of reference were:


"To enquire into the state of Association Football at all levels, including the organisation, management, finance and administration, and the means by which the game may be developed for the public good; and to make recommendations."


This particular report is summarised on page 12 of the Popplewell Report.
