Tottenham Hotspur set to know Premier League punishment for failed European Super League venture

According to a report by Sky Sports, Tottenham Hotspur, along with 5 other English clubs, are set for showdown talks with Premier League next week to know the punishment for their failed European Super League venture.

Spurs were one of the founding members of the breakaway European Super League. Along with Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, and Arsenal, the Lilywhites made up the English contingent for the new competition.

But amid widespread criticism from fans, the English clubs soon backed out. The 12 clubs that formalized their intention of establishing the ESL would have been guaranteed participation regardless of their league position.

By bringing this league into existence, the principles and values of football were challenged as merit was no longer seen as the criteria for qualification. And that is why, the Premier League has been pondering on punishment for the 6 guilty English clubs. (h/t Sky Sports)

Facing the music

Fines could exceed tens of millions in total but a proposal made by the English top-flight last week mentioned a £15m fine for each club and suspended points deduction.

While it is obvious that clubs would staunchly oppose any such deductions of points next season, Premier League is also considering a one-off fine of £1m right now and 5% of TV revenue from these clubs next season.

Tottenham fans protested the club's involvement in the Super League.

The total tally of fines from the Premier League could exceed £40m. However, the exact figures would only be known once talks have concluded in the coming days.

The Super League would have replaced the UEFA Champions League for participating clubs and it is understandable why it was widely criticized. Spurs would anyway not be playing in the UCL next season after a dreadful second half of the current campaign.
