The Premier League has now announced new measures to ensure that the threat of a separatist league cannot be repeated – these are as follows …
• 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 the Charter will be subject to significant penalties.
• Obtain 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.
At Empire of the Kop, we welcome new measures to ensure the integrity of the beautiful game, but we will exercise caution until the full impact of the charter is fully realized.
