Brexit arrives today at midnight: this will affect football and F1

first_imgThese measures are seen as a delay in a league that until now was the most economically powerful, since they will make them lose financial power and will have a priori weaker templates than the current ones, taking into account that the cracks will prefer to go to the countries that belong to the European Union (or to the European Economic Area) rather than to their leagues.Finally, soccer players with criminal record they will have much more difficulties to play there, since in theory they would be banned from entering the United Kingdom.F1, the big hitF1 would be one of the disciplines in which Brexit will most impact. Seven of the ten teams that make up the current ‘Great Circus’ grill have their factories in Britain, as well as Honda and Pirelli have an operations center in the United Kingdom. The new measure will affect 4,200 people and It will force championship leaders to negotiate a new border policy.With regard to MotoGP, Brexit will not cause major damage, since most of the headquarters of the teams are divided between Italy (with Ducati and Aprilia), Holland (with KTM) and Japan (with Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki).

These are the consequences of Brexit both in football and in the motor world.Loss of competitiveness and money in footballA large part of foreign soccer players will be considered foreign. This will not only affect new arrivals, but also those who already played in the Premier League or in any of the other leagues regulated by the FA. The Federation of England will require from now on and until it adapts to the regulation to the new law, which foreigners who hire the United Kingdom competitions belonging to the Top-10 of the FIFA ranking have played a certain percentage of minutes with their selection in order to sign.They justify it by explaining that the development of young talents in England will grow exponentially, even raising the possibility (so far rejected by the Premier League), that the quota of national players is more than 50% (13 players of a team of 25 they should be nationals).As for transfers related to minors, they will also be one step below the major European leagues, causing them to lose competitiveness, since They will not be able to trade abroad in the case of 16 and 17 year old players. Now they will have to wait until they reach the age of majority to negotiate, something that does not happen for example in Spain. In addition, UK players should be trained in national territory until they are 18 years old so as not to be considered foreigners.last_img read more
