Have Your Say

20 September 2016

CTSA statement; Have your say in our online poll

A message from Operations Director Kelly Derham:


On Thursday I will be attending a meeting of all 72 League clubs where the main item for discussion will the ‘Whole Game Solution.’ 


You may have read about this when it was first put before clubs at the AGM in June. 


Working with the FA and Premier League the main proposal is a new structure comprising of five divisions of 20 clubs from the Premier League down. This would mean fewer league games (38 instead of 46) and would mean fewer, if any, midweek games and the possibility of a winter break. 


Increased funding from the Premier League to EFL clubs would offset the reduction in matchday revenue from having fewer fixtures and, of course, four fewer away games would cut our own travel and hotel costs. 


There would be no relegation out of the EFL at the end of the 2018-19 season.


Next week’s meeting is the latest in a process of consultations which the League hope will end in a vote at next year’s AGM in June 2017.
