West Ham chief Brady supports Premier League foreign round

West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady supports the push to play Premier League games abroad.

Brady has predicted that Premier League clubs could play a round of regular league matches abroad within the next three years.

In her column in The Sun newspaper, Brady wrote: "I have to say I do like the idea of the recent proposal to play a full round of Premier League games at international venues across the world. But there is clearly some work to be done, particularly around the emotiveness of our own supporters and how this would affect them.

"Plus the impact of ticket prices - season-ticket holders would get one less game. The proposal is that across any six-season period each club would play a maximum of three 'home games' abroad.

"There's plenty of time to work out a central position as the earliest it can be introduced is January 2017."
