Why recent Premier League vote will hugely benefit Everton under 777 Partners

Yesterday marked an important date in the Premier League’s calendar, as they gathered all 20 of their teams, including an Everton side they had just punished for financial misconduct, to vote on a new topic.

Newcastle United’s links with Ruben Neves had drawn scrutiny, given his club, Al Hilal, were also under the ownership of their new custodians, PIF.

As such, many saw it as an unfair advantage set to be gained by the franchise club of the Saudi Arabian magnate.

And yet, despite such unrest surrounding the potential move, it was a motion that could not be banned, given eight of the division’s teams voted to deny the implementation of the statute.

Whilst those sides have since been revealed, it could come as a surprise to see that Everton were one of those opposing the ban.

However, with 777 Partners still interested in a takeover despite all the turmoil surrounding Goodison Park, such a decision actually makes perfect sense.

Why will the Premier League vote benefit Everton?

Well, it should come as no surprise that the bulk of those eight sides are actually aligned, or somewhat linked, with multi-club businesses.
