UK Govt. To Punish Super League Big Six Clubs With Tax And Visa

There talks that the UK Government is seriously against the Premier League's big six.

Oliver Dowden warned that the UK Government will come down hard on those Super League Big six clubs for joining the newly-formed competition, which has come under huge fire because of its exclusivity.

The Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has warned that foreign transfers could be banned for those joining the newly-formed event.

He also threatened the big six with tax hikes while speaking in the House of Commons.

Dowden said: “We are examining every option, from governance reform, to competition law, to the mechanisms that allow football to take place… we will be reviewing everything the Government does to support these clubs to play.”

He added: “We will put everything on the table to prevent this from happening.

“We will do whatever it takes to protect our national game.
