Premier League introduces new laws to block future Super League

Premier League EPL

The Premier League is ready to introduce new laws including a new owners’ charter, in a bid to block future attempts to join a breakaway Super League.

Six Premier League sides announced late on April 18 they were joining a new continental competition called the European Super League.

However, it all fell apart amid intense pressure within 48 hours.

The Premier League has now put in place a new set of measures to stop any future attempt of a breakaway division, which include additional rules and regulations and a new owners’ charter that all club owners will be required to sign up to committing them to the core principles of the competition.

It is enlisting the support of the Government to bring in “appropriate legislation” and will work alongside UEFA, the FA, EFL, PFA and LMA to ensure breaches of these new rules and the charter will be subject to significant sanctions.

“The actions of a few clubs cannot be allowed to create such division and disruption,” a Premier League statement read.

“We are determined to establish the truth of what happened and hold those clubs accountable for their decisions and actions. We and The FA are pursuing these objectives quickly and appropriately, consulting with fans and Government.”
