Six Premier League clubs who agreed to join European Super League fined a total of £22 million

The six Premier League clubs that agreed to join the breakaway European Super League have agreed to pay a combined fee of £22 million as part of a settlement, according to The Athletic's Matt Slater.

The clubs have also been told they will be hit with individual £25 million fines and a 30-point deduction if they agree to join a breakaway Super League in the future, Slater adds. 

Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur were among the 12 teams that agreed to join the Super League. All six of them pulled out within 48 hours of the new league being announced due to immense backlash. 

According to Slater, the fine money will go to "grassroots football" and not the 14 Premier League clubs who were not founding members of the Super League.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have long been some of the best clubs in the Premier League. All six finished within the top eight of the 2020-21 standings, with Man City finishing first.
