Talks over major shake-up to English football that could change FA and Carabao Cups & see Community Shield played ABROAD

A MEETING will take place on Friday over a major shake-up to the English game that could see changes to the FA and Carabao Cup and the Community Shield played abroad.

The country’s leading footy figures from the FA, Premier League and EFL are set for talks to thrash out a number of proposals made from top-flight clubs.

As reported previously, these include Premier League clubs looking into SCRAPPING replays in the FA Cup.

This idea forms part of a “New Deal for Football”, which could also see sides competing in Europe play U21 sides in the Carabao Cup.

The Times is also now stating that Community Shield could be switched from its traditional place as the season’s curtain-raiser.

The game, which is contested between the Premier League champions and FA Cup winners, raises money for charities and grassroots projects.

It usually occurs on the Sunday before the start of the top-flight campaign kicks-off – a time that big clubs are claiming disrupts their pre-season build-up and also affects the opportunities of lucrative overseas tours.

Several alternatives have been offered regarding a date change – as well as playing it abroad in order to promote the Premier League globally.

This fresh update says that “at least one club would like it to be an ‘All Stars’ game”.

That would see “each Premier League team providing a maximum of two players and playing against the top stars from other European leagues” instead of its current format.

Discussions will take place over ideas to potentially deliver £300million in extra funds to the EFL while also reforming parachute payments.

The ideas all come after the government warned the Premier League must provide a major cash injection for the EFL with a new deal – or else be forced to do so.

However, top-flight clubs have only agreed to about £160m so far.
