A new European Super League which would include the top 6 premier league teams alongside representatives from Spain and Italy is set to be announced.

Spearheaded by fifteen of Europe’s biggest clubs the plan is to launch the European Super League, in time for the 2023-24 season, with a £4.3 billion fund backing the project.

The European governing body released a joint statement together with the English Football Association, Premier League Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), La Liga, and the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) as well as Serie A saying that they will “remain united in our efforts to stop this cynical project”.

“We thank those clubs in other countries, especially the French and German clubs, who have refused to sign up to this. This persistent self-interest of a few has been going on for too long. Enough is enough,”

“We will consider all measures available to us, at all levels, both judicial and sporting in order to prevent this happening. Football is based on open competitions and sporting merit; it cannot be any other way,”

“As previously announced by FIFA and the six Federations, the clubs concerned will be banned from playing in any other competition at domestic, European or world level, and their players could be denied the opportunity to represent their national teams”.

Bundesliga sides haven’t joined in on the breakaway because the German model means commercial investors cannot have more than a 49% stake in clubs, so fans hold a majority of their own voting rights. شراء يانصيب اون لاين

As for French sides PSG who were apart of the plans have reportedly rejected the invitation claiming “European football is not only for super-rich”. ربح المال

The Premier League said in its statement that it “condemns any proposal that attacks the principles of open competition and sporting merit which are at the heart of the domestic and European football pyramid,”

“Fans of any club in England and across Europe can currently dream that their team may climb to the top and play against the best. We believe that the concept of a European Super League would destroy this dream.”

The salacious move is rumoured to be a response to UEFA’s planned reforms to the Champions League.

UEFA has proposed an increase to 36 from 32 teams in the Champions League, and an overhaul of the group stage into a single table rather than the current groups of four clubs.

Teams would play 10 matches each in the group stage rather than the six they currently play and a playoff round would also be introduced before the last 16.
