Newcastle United director Amanda Staveley ‘raised eyebrows’ among her Premier League counterparts at a recent summit regarding the proposed owners’ charter. The Premier League has introduced new rules and regulations to prevent future attempts of a Super League breakaway.
However, according to Mail Sport, Staveley, who bought Newcastle alongside Saudi Arabia’s PIF and the Reuben brothers in October, has refused to participate in the upcoming vote on the charter.
All Premier League club owners will have to sign up for the new charter, committing them to the competition’s core principles.
In the aftermath of six Premier League clubs – Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham – attempting to join the European Super League in April, new measures were planned and announced in August.
A Premier League statement read: “The Premier League, supported by The FA, is taking the following actions to protect our game, our clubs and their fans from further disruption and uncertainty.

“Additional rules and regulation to ensure the principles of the Premier League and open competition are protected, a new Owners’ Charter that all club owners will be required to sign up to, committing them to the core principles of the Premier League, (while) breaches of these rules and the charter will be subject to significant sanctions.
“And we are enlisting the support of Government to bring in appropriate legislation to protect football’s open pyramid, principles of sporting merit and the integrity of the football community.
“We will work with the fan groups, Government, UEFA, the FA, EFL, PFA and LMA to defend the integrity and future prospects of English football.”

Mail Sport report that Staveley felt the Premier League hadn’t considered the issue ‘sufficiently’ enough, and she hadn’t received enough information to make an informed decision.
There was said to be confusion among more experienced figures at the summit, considering Staveley will have been 13th to have her say.
The vote will have been conducted in alphabetical order of Premier League clubs, and she could’ve used other responses to help form her own.
The charter’s introduction aligns with the Premier League approaching the Government to enforce ‘appropiate legislation’.
It will work with the FA, EFL, PFA, LMA and UEFA to bring significant sanctions upon those who breach the rules.
Staveley is seemingly yet to place her vote, though, in what comes across as a bizarre situation.
