Gary Hoffman

LONDON: Gary Hoffman will step down as chair of the Premier League at the end of January 2022, the EPL announced on Wednesday.

The confirmation of Hoffman's departure, just 19 months after taking charge, follows media reports that he was under pressure from clubs to step down in the wake of a Saudi Arabian-backed consortium's takeover of Newcastle United.

The process of appointing a new chair will begin immediately, the EPL announced.
