The Judicial Services Department of the Football Association (FA) has selected Tim Ward QC as a member of the FA Judicial Panel as a Specialist Panel Member, with immediate effect. As such, Tim Ward will be eligible to chair Regulatory Commissions and Appeal Boards for personal hearings. This is the FA’s senior panel which hears the full range of cases in connection with disciplinary and other regulatory matters of football played in England, including on-the-field misconduct, doping, safeguarding, agent activity, and anti-discrimination.
This is not Tim Ward’s first sports panel appointment. In 2013, Tim was appointed to the Rugby Football Union panel, on which he continues to sit as an adjudicator hearing appeals concerning competition issues.
