Premier League to challenge ofcom ruling

The challenge to the Competition Appeals Tribunal was confirmed

following a meeting of top-flight clubs’ chairmen on Thursday.

Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore said: “We have

concluded that we have no option other than to mount a challenge to

their proposed action. “We do not undertake this process lightly.

However, the consequences for UK sport and UK sports fans are too

serious and fundamental for us to ignore.”
