Is the right area to get views on the discussions to form a European Premier League,
Not really interested in the clubs involved but more as to how the trickle down funding from our domestic Premier League would affect clubs at our level.

Can't help thinking that the bosses at these 6 clubs are taking their lead from our Government of corrupt chancers.

This is absolutely the right place for this discussion.

The FSA have put out a statement on this, detailed below.

The FSA has long opposed the idea of a European Super League and background on our position can be found https://thefsa.org.uk/our-work/european-super-league/

Today our chief executive Kevin Miles issued the following statement:

“The latest reports of plots, allegedly involving Manchester United and Liverpool, to create a European Super League, expose the myth that billionaire owners care about the English football pyramid, or indeed anything other than their own greed.

“This has to be the last nail in the coffin of the idea that football can be relied upon to regulate itself: these billionaire owners are out of control. Football in all its forms in the UK, from grassroots to the top tier, occupies far too important a place in our society, our culture and our communities to be jeopardised by an even greater concentration of wealth in the hands of half a dozen big clubs.

“Decisive action is now needed to protect the game we love. We have already been promised by government a fan-led review of the governance and regulation of football: that process needs to start as a matter of urgency before the super-rich custodians of the biggest clubs can do any more damage.”


It’s worth reading the link to their past piece on this 👍
