League Managers Association

League Managers Association logo
The League Managers Association (LMA) is the trade union for Premiership, Football League and national team managers in English association football. The LMA awards the LMA Manager of the Year award annually.

The LMA collects and represents the opinions and interests of the managers of all 92 clubs in the above Football Association panels charged with helping to run the game in England. It was set up in 1992 during the period when association football in England was undergoing major changes, including the split of the Premiership from the rest of the football league, and the introduction of satellite television coverage of football by Sky Television.

The President of the LMA is customarily the person serving as the manager of the England national football team, meaning that the current President is Roy Hodgson.[1] Its chief executive is Richard Bevan, and the chairman is Howard Wilkinson.

Controversy

In August 2014 Malky Mackay and Iain Moody were accused of sending each other racist, sexist and homophobic text messages; the LMA defended Mackay by dismissing his action as "banter" in a press statement which was widely condemned. The LMA later apologised for this.[2] There were calls for LMA chief executive Richard Bevan to resign as a result.[3]

In popular culture

The LMA added their name to a series of football management simulation games, LMA Manager series, for the PlayStation 2, and for 2007 the PC.
