Keep the Premier League in England!

The English Premier League is considering playing some matches overseas, BBC Sport has learned.

At a meeting in London on Thursday, all 20 clubs agreed to explore a proposal to extend the season to 39 games.

Those 10 extra games would be played at venues around the world, with cities bidding for the right to stage them.

It is understood the additional fixtures could be determined by a draw but that the top-five teams could be seeded to avoid playing each other.

Help keep the Premier League in England.

  1. This would be fantastic; we’d be able to see some of the world’s best footballers beyond the shores of England. Maybe some of these games will be staged here in the USA, some of which could involve Major League Soccer teams!

  2. This isn’t actually about friendly games. They want to play full league matches (which would count towards the table). So it still couldn’t involve MLS teams.

    Granted it would be a boost for the game in some parts of the world, but I think friendlies adequately do that task. There’s no need for league games outside of England, surely.

  3. leave our premierleague alone
