Scudamore, reflecting on the controversy caused by proposals for an extra game, said: "We had a meeting with the 20 clubs to explore the possibility of playing games abroad in a year and it created a media frenzy.
"People approached it as though teams were on a plane ready to go but it was really just the start of a process."
Scudamore revealed that the Premier League will offer its expertise to teams in Asia mostly at the grassroots level.
He said: "It will likely start with five or six clubs at an operational and coaching level. I doubt it will extend to joint commercial arrangements."
The AFC, meanwhile, will expand their Champions League from next year, increasing from 28 to 32 teams as the confederation attempts to usher in an increased level of professionalism in club football in Asia.
"We want to show some solidarity with the AFC with the relaunching of the Champions League," said Scudamore.
