- "We will put football first and keep it accessible to all"
- "We will build trust and restore faith in football governance"
- "We will ensure that football remains competitive, and we will safeguard competitive integrity and football's sustainability"
- "The strategy requires all football organisations to work closely together. Working together helps us grow together and helps us achieve our shared goal of protecting European football"
