The Premier League have released a statement on the European Super League proposal following a meeting with the 14 clubs outside the so-called ‘big six’ today.
The EPL statement confirms that Newcastle United and the 13 other Premier League clubs involved in the meeting have ‘unanimously and vigorously’ rejected plans for the Super League.
Red the full statement below, stating that ‘all actions available’ are being considered to stop the ESL from going ahead – also suggesting that the six clubs involved in the breakaway proposal have broken EPL rules:
The Premier League, alongside The FA, met with clubs today to discuss the immediate implications of the Super League proposal.
The 14 clubs at the meeting unanimously and vigorously rejected the plans for the competition.
The Premier League is considering all actions available to prevent it from progressing, as well as holding those Shareholders involved to account under its rules.
The League will continue to work with key stakeholders including fan groups, Government, UEFA, The FA, EFL, PFA and LMA to protect the best interests of the game and call on those clubs involved in the proposed competition to cease their involvement immediately.
The Premier League would like to thank fans and all stakeholders for the support they have shown this week on this significant issue.
The reaction proves just how much our open pyramid and football community means to people.
