Premier League 'big 6' fined for Super League aspirations
Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham, Manchester City and Manchester United will all pay 23 million euro as a fine for their breakaway attempts.
The six Premier League sides who attempted to form a breakaway European Super League have been fined a sum of 20 million pounds (roughly 23 million euro) per club for their attempts to forge a new competition in April of this year.
The Premier League's rebel six who signed up to the short-lived Euro Super League will be fined a combined £20m by PL on top of Uefa fine. Also, suspended £20m fine each if they #RepeatOffend (as per @MarkKleinmanSky). New rules to prevent any breakaway. More now @TeleFootball— Sam Wallace (@SamWallaceTel) June 9, 2021
All six clubs have reportedly accepted the fine by the Premier League after the failed attempts disrupted the world of football when the six English sides joined Real and Atletico Madrid, FC Barcelona and Serie A sides Juventus, Milan and Inter in bid to form a new standalone competition with the initiative unraveling less than 48 hours after the initial breakaway announcement.
Sky Sports also report that any club proposing a similar venture in the future will be slapped with a minus 30 point deduction with the news on the fines set to be confirmed later in the day.
