Listen to this exclusive iFollow Mariners interview with Town Chairman, Philip Day.
Mr Day gives us an update on the negotiation process for a financial support package for EFL clubs. Following a comprehensive debate in all three divisions, a collective agreement in principle was made to move forward and finalise the negotiations, with Championship Clubs making it clear that they wanted to ensure their colleagues in League One and League Two received the proposed £50m financial support package to cover gate losses for 2019/20 and 2020/21 as soon as is practically possible.
The Town Chairman is now quite optimistic that a deal can be struck with the Premier League. Speaking on iFollow, he said: “It’s hoped that the first payment could be as early as next week, if we can get it over the line.”
