LONDON: A parliamentary committee has demanded more information from the Football Association over the proposed sale of Wembley Stadium to Shahid Khan, the owner of Fulham and NFL outfit Jacksonville Jaguars.
A one-off session has been scheduled for July 18 by the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee.
DCMS chair Damian Collins said there should be “some public scrutiny” of any decision to sell the stadium.
He added: “Wembley is the home of English football, built in part using public money. There should be some public scrutiny of any decision to sell the stadium and how proceeds from this could be invested to benefit the long-term future of the game.
“The committee is interested in understanding the details of the FA’s proposals and receiving evidence from people who may hold alternative views.”
Sports Minister Tracey Crouch and representatives from Sport England have also been asked to give evidence on the proposed £900m sale.
