The Premier League’s 20 team meeting had rejected the reform plan proposed by Manchester United and Liverpool. Now
The clubs will cooperate openly and transparently, focusing on the structure, schedule, management and financial sustainability of the event.
The project has received the full support of the FA, and all stakeholders including fans and the government, as well as the Champions League, will participate.
At today's meeting, a plan to give financial support to small clubs was also approved to ensure that the clubs of League One and League Two would not go bankrupt due to the impact of the new crown virus and help them complete the 20-21 season.
Compared with the Premier League and the English Champions League, League One and League Two are more dependent on the income of the match day, and they have fewer resources at their disposal, so they face a greater risk of bankruptcy, especially when such fans are prohibited from entering the stadium. When watching the game.
This plan includes donations and interest-free loans for a total of 50 million pounds, plus the 27.2 million pounds of solidarity fees that have been paid to League One and League Two this year, totaling 77.2 million pounds.
This plan resolves the government’s concerns about the financial fragility of the lower-level leagues, and discussions on the financial needs of the Premier League clubs will continue.
Without the support of fans, football is no longer the original football. Without fans, the economy of football cannot be sustained. The Premier League and all clubs are committed to bringing fans back to the stadium safely as soon as possible.
