As such, with this release, the English Premier League 2020 will certainly be completed and Premier League did not cancel the results. However, the viewers of the planet’s most attractive league will have to wait more than a month to continue to enjoy the top games.
Why the Premier League 2020 was not canceled because of Corona Virus (Covid-19)?
And The Athletic magazine recently revealed an important reason why the tournament cannot be canceled, even though there are still people who think that “it will be announced at a different time”.
The source of the magazine, compiled from close journalists with Premier League clubs and some informed after the meeting yesterday, said if canceling the Premier League would have to compensate £ 762 million for The parties hold the television rights.
The Athletic said the broadcasters are currently suffering from severe economic losses due to the absence of football events in particular and sports in general. This information has been made known to the 20 Premier League clubs, and since they have received enough TV royalties this season, they are responsible for fulfilling their contractual commitments, otherwise, they will be broadcasted by broadcasters. sue (and be sure to win, whether or not the plague).
Although the Corona Virus (Covid-19) epidemic is increasingly threatening society in the UK, the FA and the Premier League organizers see this as a special moment that requires special solutions to accompany. Therefore, they agreed that the season ended later than the deadline set by the FA earlier on June 30. The matches will be played on an unpopular ground, possibly a neutral ground, and clubs will pay TV royalties to pay the players, the coaching staff and the staff in full.
This is considered the most stable solution for the clubs because they currently have no tickets, do not receive enough sponsorships, no sales money while still having to pay the team and staff. And broadcasters do not have football to show the audience and therefore do not have, or receive insufficient, revenue from advertising. That’s among one of the reasons why Premier League did not cancel the results.
There were some comments after the meeting that the clubs could still accept financial losses to end the season now and prepare to kick off in the next season out of Premier League 2020. That argument is considered to come from those who are only interested in big clubs, newly promoted teams will be in danger, and specifically for Sheffield United they are still in the European Cup group and if they cancel their prize will fall into debt after an unexpectedly successful season.
