'Wembley sale should benefit EFL clubs’

zondag 13 mei 2018

Shaun Harvey, chief executive of the English Football League (EFL) has called on the English FA to distribute the money from the sale of Wembley stadium to clubs in the EFL.

The FA is currently negotiating the sale of the iconic stadium to U.S. billionaire Shahid Khan. According to English newspapers, Khan has offered GBP 800 million for the stadium which he intends to use as its European home-venue for his American Football club Jacksonville Jaguars.

Harvey believes that the money from the potential sale would help boost clubs in the EFL, which governs the second-tier Championship and two lower tiers League One and League Two along with several cup competitions.

‘Under the current distribution mechanism the professional game is entitled to 50 percent of the proceeds after central costs have been met,” he said. ‘Any move away from this principle will only be achieved if we can be satisfied that the money will be properly utilised for the benefit of the game as a whole in England, including at our clubs.’

According to Harvey thed EFL clubs could use the money to start their own youth academies, help boost existing community programmes and create new ones.
