In a controversial proposal to make the premier league a two-division affair, 22 premier league clubs were set to meet in London a week later to finalize the move. Second division clubs like Stoke, West Brom, and Burnley could be co-opted into a second-tier Premier League at the expense of so-called smaller clubs like Grimsby Town or Barnsley. The move came on the back of bigger clubs around the country pushing for a format where bigger clubs would get more share of the huge money that was coming into the sport via broadcast deals.
