Despite the lack of Premier League action on the pitch this week, a changing of the guard off the pitch will define English football’s crown jewel for decades to come.

Dinnage, who will replace Richard Scudamore after 19 years in the role, was the global president of Discovery’s Animal Planet channel, and is a media expert in a time when the way the public consume content – whether it be sports, TV shows or films – is fast evolving.
