England FA adopts the BAME ‘Rooney Rule’ for future roles

English football’s governing body the Football Association is to adopt its version of the ‘Rooney Rule’ for future roles connected to the England national team.

The FA’s CEO Martin Glenn told the BBC the body will interview at least one applicant from a black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) background for future roles in the England set-up.

The Rooney Rule, named after NFL diversity committee chairman Dan Rooney, ensures American football clubs interview at least one BAME candidate for each head coach or senior football operation vacancy.

The FA added the rule is to apply to jobs across England teams, though BAME applicants will still need to show they meet relevant recruitment criteria.
