I see that the EFL have accepted $50m from the Premier League to help L1 and L2 clubs. Championship clubs have to make their case individually. I am not sure how much we will get but it all helps! It is reported that close to a dozen clubs could go under without this support.

Not seen the figures per club & dont know if it will be evenly spread amongst the clubs or not.

Originally, I heard that the EFL was insisting on the cash being allocated according to need. This sounds good until you realise that clubs who overspent would be baled out while well run clubs like ours would get nothing. I think giving clubs the same money would be fairer, with L1 getting more as their salary cap is bigger. That would help all clubs without unlevelling the playing field.

That would make sense so I wouldn't bank on it happening

I think that they should share the cash in proportion to home attendance figures. That is a more realistic reflection of revenue lost and is not subjective.

I think it should just be shared equally among all the clubs in a particular division, with higher payments going to the Championship and League One as BBTC suggests. The clubs with bigger attendances have greater resources to cope with the current crisis, or at least should have.
