English Football League Replaces Coke With NPower

Step down a rung from the English Premier League and you tumble down the money ladder. The Football League, home to the 72 soccer clubs that compete in the three leagues immediately below the EPL, has signed a new naming rights sponsorship with npower, the U.K. arm of the German-based utility RWE.

RULES CHANGE
Football League in homegrown ruling


Football League clubs will be obliged to have at least 10 'home-grown' players in their squads from next season. The 72 clubs voted on the new rule as one of a number of changes at their annual general meeting in Malta on Tuesday. Other new rules will see clubs being hit with a transfer embargo if they do not file their financial accounts in time, but a proposal by Leyton Orient to impose a relegation of two divisions for any club going into administration was rejected.

League chiefs will however review the punishments for administration to see if they need toughening up. Under the home-grown rule, clubs' first-team squads will be restricted to 25 players over the age of 21, of which ten must be registered in domestic football for three seasons before their 21st birthday. There will be no restriction on players under the age of 21, however
