The English Football League is proposing big changes to clubs' finances

EFL salary proposals would make some playing fields more even than others

The EFL is poised to impose a wage cap on clubs competing in the third and fourth tiers, possibly starting as early as next season, to ‘level the playing field’. This aims to stop owners achieving promotion by simply outspending their rivals. While making things fairer is an admirable sentiment, a closer look at the proposals make it clear that they would do the opposite.
