The inside of the Premier League has a fierce conflict with the Big Picture project and the Big 6 group led by MU and Liverpool are being threatened with court proceedings.
Although the ball was rolled back on the English pitch, the damage caused by Covid-19 was still extremely heavy.
The two bosses of MU and Liverpool are behind the Project Big Picture plan
However, the bailout is in danger of dissolving into smoke with recent controversy. On October 11, the British press simultaneously reported that the Big 6, led by MU and Liverpool, launched a huge reform plan called Project Big Picture with a £ 250 million aid package.
This radical plan was controversial by reducing the number of Premier League clubs (from 20 to 18), removing the League Cup and the English Super Cup, and reallocating revenue from television rights in order. from top to bottom and change of voting rights in the Premier League.
Although adding the condition that 25% of the total revenue of the Premier League will go to the League of English Leagues (EFL), this plan is strongly opposed by the lower-ranked teams losing their revenue from the League Cup. and UK television royalties are too divided.
Things became even more troublesome when the press revealed that the EFL president, Rick Parry had “reached a tacit agreement” with Big 6 and agreed with this plan. This makes the lower-ranked teams extremely angry. They are asking Rick Parry to resign because of this scandal. Before that, EFL CEO David Baldwin resigned after only a short time in office.
The Premier League is in great conflict
The English Football Federation also voiced its support for this plan. They are willing to use their interests in the Premier League to veto the plan even when 20 teams pass.
This source also said that this plan will be difficult to be approved during the meeting between 20 clubs in the Premier League this weekend. However, the future is not certain. If a common voice cannot be found, both sides will go to court and it will be an extremely large lawsuit. According to the latest survey from the Daily Mail, 8/20 Premier League teams disagree with this plan while 10 other teams have not yet determined their intentions.
