Barber To Represent Premier League On Professional Game Board

16 November 2018

Brighton & Hove Albion chief executive Paul Barber has been appointed to the Professional Game Board (PGB) as a Premier League representative. Barber replaces Ivan Gazidis, the former Arsenal chief executive who has recently joined AC Milan.

Barber, who also represents Premier League clubs in his role on the FA Council, has experience of the PGB having previously sat on the board when he represented EFL clubs, during Albion’s time in the Championship.

The PGB, as a senior committee of The FA board, is responsible for overseeing all professional football matters, from the England teams to the FA Cup, and from match officials to relations with the unions for the players and managers.

Albion chairman Tony Bloom commented, "As with Paul’s appointment to the FA Council, to be representing the Premier League underlines his and our club’s standing and credentials at the very top level of English football.

“We are delighted to see the faith and trust placed in Paul’s experience in the game by our Premier League colleagues and we know that he will work diligently to represent the league and our club.”

Barber, who joined Brighton in 2012, began his career in football with the The FA, and also worked for Tottenham Hotspur and Vancouver Whitecaps. He previously represented the EFL clubs on the PGB and The FA Council during the 2016/17 season.
