Whole Game Solution scrapped

The EFL’s plans to shake up the Football League structure have been cancelled.

The plans were due to increase the Football League’s capacity from 72 teams to 100 with an additional division, but the FA refused to move FA Cup ties to midweek fixtures, making the switch impossible.

A statement on the EFL website read:

The EFL Board has today announced that they will cease discussions on the Whole Game Solution with immediate effect.This comes after the Football Association (FA) informed them they were no longer prepared to consider rescheduling FA Cup fixtures into midweek slots.

The decision has been taken with significant regret and disappointment and brings to an end the EFL-led debate on the possibility of the single biggest reform of the English League structure since the inception of the Premier League in 1992.

In order for the Whole Game Solution to be viable, it required the English football authorities to look collectively at the fixture schedules and create additional weekends for League football.

However, after seeking clarification on the FA’s position following the recent announcement of their new international broadcasting deal, the EFL were informed that there was no longer a sufficient advantage for the FA in making the changes.

Shaun Harvey, EFL Chief Executive, said: “As a result of the FA’s decision, the Board has been left with no option but to end the Whole Game Solution discussions as, in its current form, it is no longer viable. If the weekend slots are not available, then there is simply no way we can meet the financial conditions (to be no worse off) as outlined at the very outset.

“The stance the FA has adopted has brought the discussions to a premature end, before fully understanding what the financial outcome from the creation of a new distribution model could be.

“If the FA are willing to change its position then we are, of course, open to re-engaging in what is a hugely important debate that was designed to help shape the future of football in this country.”

Looks like the winger is missing being on the pitch.
