Clubs reiterate the rescue package remains for Championship, League One and League Two clubs suffering significant COVID-19-related hardship

Premier League Shareholders met today to discuss a number of important issues. 

Clubs reiterated that the rescue package offered to the EFL remains on the table for League One, League Two and Championship clubs who are suffering significant COVID-19-related hardship. 

The offer guarantees no EFL club need go out of business as a result of the pandemic in the 2020/21 season, and our intention is to play an active role in helping clubs return to financial stability. 

The Premier League will engage directly with any EFL club suffering severe financial losses due to the pandemic, and will remain in dialogue with the EFL on this important issue. 

The rescue package is on top of solidarity payments totalling £110million already advanced to the EFL this season, alongside additional financial support for youth development and community programmes. 

Shareholders also discussed the broadcast options of non-UK live matches from round nine onwards following the international break later this month.

Discussions with all stakeholders are ongoing and a broadcast solution will be announced in due course.
