How Could Brexit Affect Premier League?

How Could Brexit Affect Premier League?

What impact would a British exit from the European Union have on the Premier League?

Would it mean that more British footballers had the chance to play in the competition and would it make it harder for European players to be signed by English clubs?

Richard Scudamore, Chief Executive of the Premier League told BBC radio it would be 'incongruous' for the league to support an exit from the EU.

'Are we better acting like we want to play our part in the world and be worldly citizens, or do we want to send a signal to the world that says, actually, we're kind of pulling the drawbridge up here?' Scudamore said.

The BBC reported in March that 332 European players in the Premier League, the second-tier Championship and the Scottish Premiership would fail to meet existing criteria for non-EU players if Britain broke away from the bloc.

Players from outside the EU are usually required to have been chosen for the national teams of their home countries before being given work permits in Britain.

Brits vote this Thursday on whether to stay or leave the EU.
