The proposal put forward by Liverpool FC and Manchester United FC, which would change the control of football to be in the hands of the owners of the “Big 6” clubs has received total opposition from Premier League Fans Groups
It is encouraging that all 6 Fans Groups of the “Big 6” have issued a joint statement condemning the proposal which can be read here https://www.imust.org.uk/Blog/Entry/joint-statement-project-big-picture
The Football Supporters Association have also issued a detailed response to the proposal recognising the positive elements but not being deceived by the power grab that is being attempted at a time when EFL clubs desperately need funds to survive, read here:
As both statements make clear, the Premier League as an entire 20 club organisation have to act swiftly to provide the financial aid the EFL clubs need, but not by handing control to the Big 6 owners which would change the future of football forever.
We are confident that a combination of the FA, the Government and fans lobbying will stop this proposal in its tracks, while any changes to the game going forward must involve fan consultation, the Big 6 clubs may have just scored a big own goal, giving the Government the push to deliver its manifesto promise of fan led reform.
