All 20 Premier League clubs today discussed their significant concerns regarding reported proposals for changing the format and qualification criteria for UEFA club competitions from season 2024/25.

All clubs unanimously agreed it is inappropriate for European football bodies to create plans that would alter the structures, calendar and competitiveness of the domestic game and will work together to protect the Premier League. 

In England, football plays an important role in our culture and everyday life.

Millions of fans attend matches across the country, with allegiances and local rivalries often passed down through generations.

We have a fantastic combination of competitive football and committed fans that we will vigorously defend. 

The structures of domestic football are determined by leagues and their respective national associations.

We will now work with The FA and other leagues to ensure that European football bodies understand the importance of this, and their obligation to maintain the health and sustainability of domestic league football.
