Take a Stand Against Greg Dyke's B Team Proposal

You've probably heard of the proposals by Greg Dyke, Chairman of the Football Association to introduce Premier League and Championship 'B Teams' into the football league pyramid via a new division between the current Football League Division Two and the Conference.

This will break up the football pyramid , will only benefit the Premier League teams and ruin a system that works.

The B teams league proposal is part of a 4 point plan

  • 10 Premier League B teams and 10 from the Conference would take part.
  • 20 of the 25 players in the squad should qualify for the home-grown rule.
  • No non-EU players allowed.
  • 19 of the 25 players in the squad should be under the age of 21.

Say no to B Teams. Sign the petition against the proposal.
