Premier League exit statement on threat of European Super League – fr


The Premier League has issued a statement outlining the measures in place to protect against the threat of a European Super League.
Six top-flight clubs attempted to break up and join a closed-shop competition that was widely condemned.

Fans and football officials have made their feelings known and all six teams are quickly pulling back from proposed Super League plans.

Club owners faced backlash from fans which peaked during the protests at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Premier League is now putting measures in place to ensure there cannot be a repeat amid fears that the leaders of those six clubs are trying to make a similar move in the future.

These include the protection of the ethics of open competition as well as the need for owners to sign a new charter.



Premier League seeks protection from repeated Super League saga

The full statement reads: “The events of the past two weeks have called into question the foundations and determination of English football.

“The Premier League has prepared a series of measures to enshrine the fundamental principles of professional gaming: an open pyramid, progression through sporting merit and the highest standards of sporting integrity. These measures are aimed at ending the threat of the separatist leagues in the future. .

“Opposition to the proposed Super League has united all of football, with the voices of the fans being clearly heard. The Premier League recognizes the strength of sentiment and the right of supporters to know what is going on.

“The actions of a few clubs cannot be allowed to create such divisions and disturbances. We are determined to get the truth about what happened and to hold these clubs accountable for their decisions and actions.

“We and the FA are pursuing these goals quickly and appropriately, consulting with supporters and the government.

“In addition, the Premier League, backed by the FA, is taking the following steps to protect our game, our clubs and their fans from further disruption and uncertainty:

• Additional rules and regulations to ensure the protection of the principles of the Premier League and open competition

• A new owners’ charter to which all club owners will have to subscribe, committing them to respect the fundamental principles of the Premier League

• Violations of these rules and of the Charter will be subject to significant penalties.

• We seek government support to pass appropriate legislation to protect the football’s open pyramid, the principles of sporting merit and the integrity of the football community.

“We will work with fan groups, the government, UEFA, FA, EFL, PFA and LMA to uphold the integrity and future prospects of English football. ”
