The Premier League has taken action to prevent a repeat of its clubs threatening to breakaway in response to the Super League fallout.

A new set of measures have now been put in place by the Premier League 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.

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

The Premier League recognises the strength of feeling and the right of fans to know what is happening.

“Opposition to the proposed Super League united the whole of football, with the fans’ voice clearly heard.

Six top-flight teams, including Manchester United and Liverpool, announced late on 18 April they were joining a new continental competition called the European Super League, only for it to collapse amid intense pressure within 48 hours.

We and The FA are pursuing these objectives quickly and appropriately, consulting with fans and government.” In the statement released on Monday, the league also said that the ESL breakaway had “challenged the foundations and resolve of English football” and it had acted to prepare a series of measures “to enshrine the core principles of the professional game: an open pyramid, progression through sporting merit and the highest standards of sporting integrity”.
