UK football fans say NO to B-Teams in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy
This petition had 1,624 supporters
Reports in the UK media yesterday evening suggest the Premier League and Football League are in negotiations to allow Premier League B-Teams into the competition.
16 Premier League U-21 teams would enter the competition based on their academy category rating.
Lower league football fans reject the idea that they should have to pay for the failures of the Premier League and FA in terms of youth development.
The introduction of B-Teams into the JPT (or any other competition where club first teams play) harms the greater footballing pyramid for minimal gain.
The signatories of this petition strongly urge both the Premier League and Football League to communicate with supporters regarding the changes and other potential ideas.
