Graham kelly


Graham Kelly (born 23 December 1945) is an English football administrator. He was secretary of The Football League from 1978 to 1989 and chief executive of The Football Association (FA) from 1989 to 1998. In December 1998, he resigned from the FA, along with chairman Keith Wiseman, when a scandal broke out over an allegedly improper loan of £3.2 million, from the FA to the Football Association of Wales (FAW).

It was alleged that the loan was intended to buy the FAW's support for Wiseman's election as a vice president for FIFA, which would in turn help England's unsuccessful bid to host the 2006 FIFA World Cup, which went to Germany. In February 1999, after FIFA conducted an investigation, Kelly and Wiseman were subsequently cleared of wrongdoing.
