Premier League Big Six reach settlement over Super League

LONDON – The six English clubs that said they would join the European Super League will pay a combined £22 million ($31 million) as “a gesture of goodwill” and face a 30-point deduction if they attempt a similar move in future, the Premier League said on Wednesday.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur will also each be fined 25 million pounds if they attempt another breakaway, the league added.

The Super League was launched with 12 clubs as founding members, but nine of them — six from England and AC Milan, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid — have since backed out and reached a deal with UEFA.
