The commercial future of the Premier League post-Brexit
The UK’s decision to vote for ‘Brexit’ on 23 June 2016 will have a widespread impact across the UK. However, almost 9 months later, the terms by which the UK will leave the EU are still unclear.
The effects of Brexit on the Premier League will largely be determined by the terms of the UK’s exit as well as any bilateral agreements the UK government concludes with individual EU Member States.

Could the Premier League’s current sponsorship and licensing model (and the enormous revenues it generates) be adversely affected?
Will Brexit affect the amount of big money investment/takeovers or international transfers?
Could it result in a more aggressive salary cap?
