Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, FC Barcelona, AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus-these were 12 that shocked the football world on Sunday by establishing the European Super League. League of Clubs.
The largest club in continental Europe has decided to withdraw from the Champions League and oppose the reforms approved by UEFA on Monday. Twelve clubs do not accept the next transfer from the largest club to the smaller club.
People have been speculating about plans to establish a Super League for at least a few months. Of course, the most important thing in this project is money. At the end of January, the “Times” reported that at the beginning of its establishment, the club could count on sharing up to 3.1 billion pounds of “infrastructure subsidies”! This means that each club’s revenue is between £89 and £310 million. The money will fill the budget gap caused by the “loss of stadium revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic”.
But this is not all. As a result of participating in the Super League, the annual income of a single club will be between 130 and 213 million pounds. This is not a small amount, because the current Champions League winner can count on around 100 million pounds. The high income of the Super League participants is mainly guaranteed by JP Morgan, which is one of the largest financial holding companies in the world.
However, the rate of closure of the UEFA Super League exceeded the rate of creation. On Tuesday, less than two days after the project was officially announced, the first group of clubs began to withdraw from the project. Chelsea and Manchester City did this first, followed by the rest of the English clubs as well as Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan.
On the night of Wednesday to Thursday, Real Madrid President Florentino Perez (Florentino Perez) was supposed to be the chairman of the Super League, and he believed that the Olympics would definitely be held in the future. Now, it seems, if anything, it will be much longer than Perez envisioned.
It’s all because on Friday afternoon, JP Morgan announced that he would withdraw from the fundraising activities of the competition. The short statement said: “Obviously, we were wrong in assessing how the wider football community views this agreement and its impact on the future. We will learn from it.”
“New York Times” reporter Tariq Panja (Tariq Panja) is one of the first to understand the news of the Super League, reported that JPMorgan Chase will spend about 3.4 billion euros on the game.
