Big Six vote against 'New Deal for Football' plan

Liverpool are said to be among one of six clubs that have voted against the Premier League and FA’s “New Deal for Football” package.

Per The Times, all of the big six, including Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea, have voted against conversations taking place between the Premier League, FA, and English Football League.

However, the measure was voted in by 14 of the 20 Premier League clubs.

The idea behind the talks is to deliver additional financial support to clubs in lower divisions in the English football pyramid.

Per the source, the package would “would result in about £170 million more a year being given to the EFL and parachute payments drastically cut.”

However, the top clubs in England are uncertain about how much they would have to contribute to the package, relative to other teams in the Premier League.
