League Ring Changes for the New Season


THE new Football League season is now well underway.

Fans may, however, have been surprised by a number of rule changes that will affect their club, either directly or indirectly.

3. Transfer levy THE Football League has introduced a new 1% levy on transfer spending with all monies raised being used to fund the development of young players at Football League clubs.

It is anticipated that the new levy will raise approximately pounds 600,000 per season. …
