The Premier League has confirmed in a statement on their website that they are introducing new measures to prevent outbreaks in leagues in the future.
Alongside a number of other giant clubs from across the continent, Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur proposed the ‘European Super League’ – but their dream was short-lived.
Less than 48 hours after it was announced, the Premier League sides involved withdrew from the plans and it began to collapse.

The Premier League has now announced that new measures to ensure that the threat of an interruption league can not be repeated – these are as follows …
• Additional rules and regulations to ensure the principles of the Premier League and open competition are protected
• A new ownership charter that all club owners must sign up for and commit to the primary principles of the Premier League
Violations of these rules and the Charter will be subject to significant sanctions
• Encourages government support for the introduction of appropriate legislation to protect the open pyramid of football, the principles of sporting merit and the integrity of the football community
We in the Empire of the Kop welcome the new measures to ensure the integrity of the beautiful game, but will fail alongside caution until the full effect of the Charter is fully realized.
