The Premier League is far ahead of the other top European leagues, both economically and in terms of marketing. And now there are already the next plans on the island to further expand the lead.
As the English portal The Athletic reports, there is a plan in the Premier League to organize a preparatory tournament in the USA, in which several PL clubs will take part. Originally, those responsible had probably already considered the idea for this year - but due to the corona pandemic, the corresponding steps could not yet be taken.
Since there is no major tournament in men's football next year, the teams could even field their most prominent players. The organizers expect full stadiums, but also interest from sponsors and TV stations. All of this would of course result in further revenue for Premier League clubs.
The USA is hosting the World Cup in 2026 together with Mexico and Canada, which is why there is great interest in the United States in organizing such a preparatory tournament.
