Following the European Super League fiasco earlier last month, the wealth of Premier League owners has come under scrutiny. During that time, football fans around the world condemned what looked to be a blatant cash grab from Europe’s biggest clubs that threatened the future of the Champions League and Premier League as we know them.
But thankfully the project fell apart under 48 hours as the owners of the ‘big six’ clubs decided to pull out of the competition, which also featured the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus.
Even though the breakaway competition is out of existence, for now, the mere threat of such a money-rich competition has opened a broader debate about whether or not the sport is losing its identity.
Thus, it’s enough reason to encourage us to put the riches of the Premier League owners under the microscope to see exactly how much wealth in their control.
