Prize money doubled but 16 'Elite Academy Teams' involved.

Just the start for me.  Throw money at it to silence enough of those clubs who will disagree, which is exactly what they'll do to get League 3/Old Firm teams here.

Absolutely disgusting, and this is just the start. Before we know it we will be playing United under 21's in the league. Really think the FL fans need to rally together against this, boycott or something,

A fans boycott is surely on the cards

"Falls to Arnold... Arnold! That's it! Thats it! He's sealed it! Grimsby Town are back in the football league!!! Just a minute to go and Nathan Arnold makes it 3-1! Look at the scenes behind the goal! Look at the relief! The agony is finally over!!!"

A competition intended for the lower football league teams to realistically get a cup sold off by the FL for 30 pieces of Premiersh*t silver !!! Absolutely disgusting and another example of how the Premiersh*t is ruining football for the clubs lower down the pyramid.

Any money they add to the prize fund will be lost in gate reciepts , there would be hardly anyone attend a game to see a B team of 17 year olds

Boycott for sure, what a disgusting decision. Do these people not care what fans think? The people that put there money into it..

Boycott any game against one of these "elite academy teams" then. Home or away.

Maybe just boycott the whole competition see every game with empty stadiums that'll get the message through.

Agree with all of the above. Nothing less than a total boycott is required. Hopefully the league clubs will just put out youth teams too and make the whole competition pointless. There is absolutely no room for this B-team nonsense.
