Sport Soccer-Premier League wants clubs to sign Owners’ Charter
New charter vows to bring back UK-US travel 'as soon as possible'
Links between the US and UK have suffered significant disruption during the coronavirus crisis, and the two leaders want to agree a fix to allow more flights to resume in the near future. A new travel taskforce to make recommendations on how to safely reopen routes will be set up as the UK and US 'closely share thinking and expertise' on the best method for bringing back international travel. In a highly symbolic act, the Prime Minister and President revived the original charter signed by Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt in 1941, which is credited with laying the foundations for the post-war settlement.
(Reuters) - Premier League teams have agreed in principle to an Owners’ Charter that will "reaffirm the values and expectations placed on clubs and their owners" in a bid to stop any future English involvement in a European Super League project.
It was one of a number of decisions taken at the organisation’s Annual General Meeting on Thursday that included the confirmation of financial sanctions totalling a combined 22 million pounds ($31 million) for the six clubs who signed up to the Super League.
"Shareholders discussed a range of matters and recommitted to build on the collective of all 20 clubs to benefit the wider game," the Premier League said in a statement.
