Football League clubs reject B team proposal

Following their meeting in Portugal, the 92 Football League clubs have voted overwhelmingly against FA chairman Greg Dyke’s proposal to create a new tier consisting of Premier League B teams, BBC Sport has reported.

This has proved to be the most controversial of Dyke’s proposals to help improve the fortunes of the England national team. It was one that came as a result of a meeting between the FA commission which was set up by Dyke in October.


The proposal involves the creation of a new fifth tier of English football, made up of 10 Conference clubs and 10 Premier League B teams, with the B teams allowed to progress as high as the Championship.


From the start, Football League clubs have been sceptical of the plans, while the Conference have already voiced their opposition. On Friday it was revealed that all 92 of the clubs between the Championship and League Two have ‘no appetite’ for B teams to enter the league.


"It's fair to say there is no appetite among clubs for the use of B teams or Strategic Loan Partnerships in the football pyramid," said Shaun Harvey, chief executive of the Football League.
