What do the Premier and Football Leagues have in common?
Both aim to grow the game and both have established partnerships with local communities.
The Premier League is a joint venture of the Premier Sports and Leagues Group (PSLG), and the Football League is the joint venture between the Football Association and Football Supporters’ Federation.
These partnerships provide a platform to develop the game, and both are set to be vital in the future.
They provide the opportunity to bring in a new breed of fans, and to engage with communities on a national level.

Professional Footballers Association (PAFA): The PAFA will play a more central role in all aspects of the game’s development, with both the Premier Premier and all other clubs and associations having the opportunity of working closely with the PPA and the League to develop their own Premier League brand.
Where will the Premier leagues future go?
The Premier League will work closely with both Premier Sports, the new Professional Football Leaguers Association and the governing body of the Football Conference, the FA.
Premises: The new Premier Clubs will be managed by the Premier Sport Group, who will be working with clubs across the league to grow their profile.
They will be overseen by a board of directors who will consist of the clubs’ top brass and owners, with a number of high-profile members also taking part.
Leagues: Players will continue to be free to leave their clubs after being a part of a club for two years, and any player will have their playing time and income linked to their Premier League contract.
In addition, the clubs will be able to transfer players between leagues, while a new “bonded” contract will be introduced which will allow players to remain with their current clubs until their Premier Premier deal expires.
Who will be involved in the deal?
It will be up to the Premier clubs and other Premier clubs to decide how the Premier players will be linked with their new clubs.
Players are expected to sign new Premier contracts in January, with all new contracts having a one-year expiration.
A number of Premier clubs have already announced that they’re ready to commit to the new partnership, while some have hinted that they may move to the next stage of the deal sooner rather than later.
How will the new arrangement affect the rest?
All clubs will continue as they are, with new Premier players coming into the Premier squad, while Premier League clubs will retain their Premier Leaguer status, while their existing Premier Premier players remain Premier.
While the Premier Clubs and the PSA will remain in control of the day-to-day running of the new agreement, the FFA will continue in its role as a board and a regulator of the League, in addition to running the Premier team, the Professional Development League, as part of the governing bodies.
Will there be more teams?
As part of this partnership, the two Premier Leagures will also play a part in the Premier Players’ Development Programme, and will be tasked with developing the young talent of the players who are not already playing in the English Premier League for the rest at a new academy.
So, will the players of the future be more English, or more foreign?
No, it will be all English.
Does it mean more players will leave clubs?
Not really, because there will be more players at the end of the contract, with more players
