The FA’s £600m plan to sell Wembley Stadium will reach a critical stage on Thursday when the full FA Council sees the organisation’s blueprint to change grassroots football in England forever.
The 127 members of the council will hear a presentation by the FA’s chief executive officer Martin Glenn and chief financial officer Mark Burrows on what Fulham owner Shahid Khan is proposing for the home of English football.
Sky Sports News understands that as many as a third of the council members still hold serious reservations over the deal, despite assurances from the FA that all of the £600m will be spent on grassroots projects.
A number of presentations have already been held on Tuesday at St George’s Park.
While the Council does not have the power to halt any deal, one member has told Sky Sports News he believes the FA board would favour a unanimous verdict from the members, but may have to take a majority view.
A full Council vote on the proposed sale is expected on October 24.
