League Games Abroad

27th August, 2018

CPST fully endorses the recent FSF statement concerning any revival of the idea of a 39th Premier League game abroad, following La Liga’s recent announcement about games to be played in the USA.

Malcolm Clarke, FSF Chair, stated, “The FSF would strongly oppose and actively campaign against any suggestion that Premier League games should be played abroad, as we did with the infamous “Game 39″ proposal. English football clubs are rooted in their local communities, and their local fans, and a vibrant away following, are still their lifeblood, even in the television age. It would be totally against the great traditions of our game, and a betrayal of loyal supporters,  to move competitive league games abroad.”
