- We want the game to be successful, says chief executive
- EFL has not approached for extra funding, Richard Masters adds
The Premier League will donate £1m to help the Women’s Super League restart next season but continues to stand its ground on providing financial support for the men’s football pyramid.
Richard Masters appeared in front of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport select committee to answer questions on the restart of the Premier League. In a wide-ranging series of exchanges, the chief executive was also asked to explain the competition’s support for Black Lives Matter and the possible use of Covid-19 passports by supporters. The theme to which discussion returned time and again, however, was money.
