Johnson's triumph confirms Brexit: these are the consequences in football, F1 ...

The result of the elections in the United Kingdom with the victory of Boris Johnson paves the way for the exit of the European Union to take place.


The majority achieved by Boris Johnson in the United Kingdom elections of December 12 makes clear the intention of a good part of the voters to continue with Brexit, a process that the conservative candidate has defended, and the new Prime Minister. This result confirms the opinion that on June 23, 2016 already defended 51.9% of voters who want the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.

On January 31 the last extension granted by the EU ends in a process surrounded by a lot of uncertainty in the sport will also be affected. Doubts fly over a divided football while Formula 1 appears as the worst stop in this matter.

Football: struggle of interests between the FA and the Premier League

Once Brexit is carried out, many foreign players will become non-EU, which will generate problems for both those who are already there and for new arrivals. New players arriving from Europe will have to abide by the rules for extra-community members of the FA, which prepares a new regulation for a situation totally different from the current one. Today, the FA requires that 30% of the games played with the national team to the non-EU members of the top ten countries to be able to sign for an English club as a way to certify the arrival of elite foreigners.

In addition, the FA defends a system in which it seeks to provide "better opportunities for young English players" and takes this whole process advocating protectionist measures towards the national player wanting to increase his quota up to 13 in a mandatory manner in the templates of 25 players, something that does not like anything in the League or clubs that would also affect their interests in the market.

The justification for the new norm is the application of the guidelines that have been given to foreign workers and a greater development of young Englishmen who, they suppose, would enjoy more minutes and a better evolution up to the elite with increasing presence in template. As reported by AS, this measure would force the Premier clubs to a possible march of up to 65% of players considered foreign.

The Premier, with some members publicly positioned against Brexit, have been opposed to this measure, ensuring that there is no evidence to show that a lower arrival of foreign players and the entry of more national players increases the quality of the seconds. Obviously, the Premier transfer market would also be severely restricted.

In this war that will determine the future of English professional football, the FA has the support of the Government while the Premier has aligned itself with the EFL, manager of the other professional divisions of English football, and the Scottish League.

Brexit would determine remarkably the grassroots football would already force the United Kingdom players to be trained in national territory until the age of 18, preventing their departure to academies from other countries. In addition, their quarries could not catch players until they reach that age. Now, both operations can be performed since the players turn 16, as happened with the signings of Cesc Fàbregas for Arsenal, Piqué for Manchester United or the march of Jadon Sancho to Borussia Dortmund

In the absence of a necessary agreement between FA and the main professional Leagues, in the most immediate, the Eurocup, no visa problems or access are expected for any player, coach or member of the participating teams.

F1, the big hit in the world of the engine Inside the engine, Formula 1 would be especially affected by Brexit, in fact, it can be one of the sports that pays the most because the base of the World Cup is based in the United Kingdom . Seven of the ten teams that form the grill have their operational headquarters there and also feed on the local industry to manufacture the 20,000 components that make up a car, so a change in border policy or tariffs and customs can greatly affect negatively.

This is the relationship of the teams and their venues: Mercedes in Brackley and Brixworth, Renault in Enstone, McLaren in Woking, Red Bull in Milton Keynes, Racing Point in Silverstone, Williams in Grove and Haas in Banbury. In addition, Honda has an operations center in Milton Keynes and Pirelli, which designs its tires in Milan and manufactures them in Turkey or Romania, also operates in the city of Slough. It is estimated at 6,500 direct jobs of the 'Grand Circus', of which some 4,200 are in the United Kingdom, according to' Racefans'.

While F1 sees how "the mother of all disasters," as Toto Wolff, the head of Mercedes, said, the consequences of Brexit, from the other side of the motor world, that of motorcycling, the concern is not even of Away those dimensions. If the F1 World Cup is strongly connected to the United Kingdom, in MotoGP the connections are rather scarce. All its official teams are divided between Europe (Italy with Ducati and Aprilia, and Holland with KTM) and Japan (Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki) .

So the development of the equipment, even in the other categories of Moto2 and Moto3, would not be affected. Nor in the part of the main suppliers: tires (Michelin is French), suspensions (Öhlins, Swedish and WP, Austrian) or brakes (Brembo, Italian). What Britain does have in MotoGP is a grand prize in Silverstone (the one in 2020 will be August 30) and a rider, Cal Crutchlow, in the premier class (in addition to others like Lowes, Dixon or McPhee in the others), but a priori they would stay out of the consequences of Brexit.
