Mr McCormick, Senior Partner of -based McCormicks Solicitors, was unanimously appointed by Premier League clubs to represent the League on both The F.A. Board and The F.A. Council.

He was Acting Chairman of the Premier League from March 2014 to June 2015 and has worked with the League for over 20 years, including in one of his current roles as Chairman of the Legal Advisory Group, and therefore brings a wealth of experience and understanding to the role.

A new Board has also been created at the Premier League and Peter McCormick will chair that.

In addition to being appointed a Director of the F.A. and a member of the F.A. Council, he has also been appointed a member of the F.A.’s Professional Game Board, the Professional Game Forum, and the F.A. International Committee, members of which represent England in an ambassadorial capacity at matches away from Wembley.

Peter McCormick is ranked as one of the leading Sports lawyers in the UK by the two principal guides to the legal profession, the UK Legal 500 and Chambers UK.

Peter said:

My experience as Acting Chairman means I have no problem taking on these additional roles while continuing to provide a first-class service to our clients at McCormicks.
