The six Premier League clubs that agreed to join the separatist European Super League have agreed to pay a combined fee of £ 22 million as part of a deal, according to Athletic’s Matt Slater.
Clubs have also been told that they will face individual fines of £ 25 million and a 30-point deduction if they agree to join a dissident Super League in the future, Slater adds.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur were among the 12 teams that agreed to join the Super League. All six withdrew within 48 hours of the announcement of the new league due to an immense backlash.
According to Slater, the money from the fine will go to “grassroots football” and not to the 14 Premier League clubs that were not founding members of the Super League.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have long been some of the best clubs in the Premier League. All six finished in the top eight of the 2020-21 standings, with Man City finishing first.
