All 20 Premier League clubs unanimously reject plans for massive shake-up

Written by on 14/10/2020

Plans from Liverpool and Manchester United to radically reform England’s top flight of football have been unanimously rejected by all 20 Premier League clubs.

The “Project Big Picture” plans – which would have resulted in the biggest shake-up of English football in a generation – aimed to reduce the number of teams in the Premier League from 20 to 18, with the majority of power put in the hands of the biggest clubs.

The plans also promised lower league clubs, which have been starved of income by the coronavirus pandemic, an immediate £250m rescue package and a 25% cut of future Premier League media revenues.
