Greed disguised as benevolence: It’s unsurprising that fingerprints of US owners are all over Premier League ‘Project Big Picture’

Despite their clubs standing to benefit the most from the proposals, the Supporters Trusts of the ‘Big Six’ issued a joint statement on the matter as they too condemned the idea of concentrating all the power at the top of the Premier League.

At least eight top-flight clubs are said to be against the project, with the Daily Mail naming six of them: Brighton & Hove Albion, Burnley, Crystal Palace, Fulham, Sheffield United and West Bromwich Albion. 

West Ham – despite being one of the chosen three to retain voting rights as one of the current longest-serving members of the division – are reportedly “very much against” them too.

Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani also appears to hold a similar view, as he retweeted an interview in which sports journalist Henry Winter condemned the US-led project and said: “The sport belongs to the people, not to someone in Boston and the Everglades.”

Under current rules, every Premier League club has one vote, with a majority of 14 needed for a motion to pass.
