Their counterparts at the remaining 14 clubs have campaigned hard to have them removed from their influential positions on the organisation’s committees and working groups. On Thursday, those involved confirmed they would step down from their various responsibilities within the running of England’s top division.

Most of the club owners believed the ‘Big Six’ acted in bad faith by going behind their backs and signing up for the new midweek competition, which was bankrolled to the tune of £4billion by Wall Street giant JP Morgan.
