Joint statement from supporters' trusts
5 September ~ A record £835 million was spent on players by Premier League clubs in this summer's transfer window, while Richard Scudamore says that "economically we've got 20 of the world's top 50 clubs now". Meanwhile, as a joint statement from the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters' Trust, the Aston Villa Supporters' Trust, Leicester's Foxes Trust, Everton's Blue Union and Liverpool's Spirit of Shankly points out, only £200,000 was set aside per club for "away fan initiatives". The groups want fans to come together and force the clubs, authorities, broadcasters, sponsors and partners to act, making football more affordable to all supporters.
