Man Utd And Liverpool To Form New FIFA-Backed League

Man Utd And Liverpool Form New League

Liverpool and Manchester United are in talks with fellow clubs from around Europe to form a FIFA-backed European Premier League.

The plans are supported by a funding package worth £6billion, according to Sky Sports. 

Five Premier League clubs could be set to join the league, which will be made up of 18 teams from around Europe.

The league’s start date is currently pencilled in for 2022, and fixtures would take place throughout the current football calendar.

Teams from Italy, Spain, Germany and France will also be involved.

The format would see teams play in a league format, with a knockout tournament featuring the top-placed sides rounding off the competition.
