In the Netherlands, there is always a lot of discussion about the distribution of Eredivisie funds, but a battle has also emerged in the Premier League. The English top clubs have undermined the current agreements, which will expire by 2025.
According to the Daily Mail, the six top clubs in the Premier League want to unleash a radical restructuring of the distribution. Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Tottenham Hotspur are said to want to pocket tens of millions of euros extra. This would come at the expense of the other clubs in the Premier League.
Currently, the clubs at the bottom of the standings earn relatively favorably compared to the top clubs. However, a new arrangement must be made starting from the 2025/2026 season. And it is precisely the big clubs that see an opportunity to take a larger share of the prize pool.
According to the Big Six, they are entitled to more funds because they contribute more to the international growth of the Premier League. All clubs must vote on the new distribution next Tuesday. So far, it seems that the top clubs and the other teams in the league are on opposite sides of the issue.
