The teams – Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, and Tottenham – have also agreed to a £25m fine and a potential 30-point deduction, if it happens in the future.

‘As a gesture of goodwill, the clubs have collectively agreed to make a contribution of £22m, which will go towards the good of the game, including new investment in support for fans, grassroots football, and community programmes,’ the statement read in part.

It added that ‘the clubs have agreed to support rule changes so that any similar actions in the future would lead to a 30-point deduction.

‘Each of the six clubs, in that event, would also be subject to an additional £25m fine.’
