An FA campaign is under way to bring football back to the common folk who helped popularise it.
Co-Executive of the FA, Lord Lucan, is fronting the project which will aim to ‘bring football back to ordinary chaps’.
The aristocrat insists he is determined to put a stop to the rampant commercialisation of the sport, which is squeezing out regular fans.
He said: “I’m fed up of all this elitist nonsense that surrounds football these days.
“There are simply not enough boxes at grounds with enough space for one’s footman, mistress and illegitimate children.
“And the parking for one’s chauffeur is scandalous.”
Lucan recently revealed the real reason for the switch to Sunday football matches instead of the traditional Saturday games.
He said: “Quite simply, it was duffing up one’s grouse hunting.
“My grounds are home to the finest grouse this side of the Atlantic.
“Even my driver Sixsmith can’t make it to Stamford Bridge in time for kick-off after a Saturday afternoon on the heaths.”
