Qatari ‘Dream Football League’ a Hoax Say French Liars Who Began the Rumor: The Daily EPL

sheikhs shake football Qatari ‘Dream Football League’ a Hoax Say French Liars Who Began the Rumor: The Daily EPL

The Times newspaper of London has egg on its face this morning after it’s been revealed that their “exclusive” story about Qatar launching a ‘Dream Football League’ was a hoax.

As was reported last night, the DFL was billed as a summer tournament in Qatar and neighboring Gulf States that would pay teams as much as £175million to participate in a 24-team tournament.

Maybe it’s good news after all that it’s a fake story since the players would have trouble coping with the heat anyway. But as of last night, boy did the story sound real.

Here are today’s Premier League news headlines:
