... of 122 representatives on the FA council, only eight are women and four are from black and ethnic minority backgrounds.

I heard the interview yesterday. I don't know the FA council is composed. Is it mainly people who are elected within regional FA bodies that are put on it, with some others (e.g. the token supporter) co-opted on?

The eight  women and four from black/ethnic minority backgrounds possibly reflects the relative proportions that take an active interest in the administration (as opposed to being involved at club level) of the game.

I'm not a great fan of forced proportional representation. Things can swing the other way.

It reminds me of the TV show W1A, that satirised the goings-on at the BBC.

The Head of News, on hearing that staffing proportions had to reflect the make-up of the British population, saying that he was going to have to start employing a lot more white, middle-aged blokes.
