According to the “New York Times” report, eight European super clubs have reached an agreement on every detail to create a new super champion, which will operate completely independently of the European Football Association (UEFA). The plan has been joined by about a dozen other large clubs besides this, and the plan will be announced soon.
In the last few months of secret negotiations, Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Juventus and AC Milan played a leading role, but according to the news, there are at least 4 teams (Arsenal) , Tottenha (Tottenha), Atlético Madrid (Atlético Madrid) and Internazionale (Internazionale) expressed their interest in joining. The club’s decision thus effectively ended the UEFA Champions League reform plan announced by the European Union on Monday. The new series will begin in 2022 .
However, the main clubs that determine the current balance of power, such as Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich or Dortmund Football Club, have not yet been included in the list and they do not want to break up with UEFA. Club President Nasser al-Khelaifi serves as Chairman of the UEFA Board of Directors and Chairman of the Qatar BeIN Media Group, which has become a semi-finalist of the European Union (BL), which is the broadcast of the European Union (BL) Right paid millions of euros.
in spite of An article in the New York Times According to the news that there was no club involvement, UEFA did not respond to their request. At the same time, the Premier League warned all 20 teams that if any of them enters a closed tournament series, it may result in fines. In addition, according to the article, UEFA has mobilized serious legal institutions to formulate the plan, and has indicated that the relevant clubs will be excluded from the national league and the next European Cup series.
It’s not easy to join the club. PL will definitely do its best to maintain its six most valuable clubs, and clubs like Real Madrid or Barcelona will have to make such decisions by sponsoring memberships like German clubs.
But for those who want to break up, the stakes are not just high stakes: UEFA can’t afford to lose the most popular clubs and the pressure of the billions of fans and TV viewers who follow them. It will completely devalue its cup series and must pay back most of the broadcasting rights sold for billions of euros and dollars. Next time they will get almost nothing.
The plan for the Chinese Super League is nothing new. Recently We wrote a month agoJuventus President Andre Agnelli’s serious attitude, in addition to serving as the chairman of the European Club Association (ECA), which convenes 200 leading European clubs, he is also a member of the UEFA Executive Committee. There is obviously an idea in the Super League, which is why several major investors have raised this issue, so it is no wonder that they can pay 350 million euros to each club to join on their own. In the BL season, the current cumulative number of winning teams cannot exceed 100 million.
It is planned that in addition to 16 permanent directors abroad, there will be 4 clubs (including 15 + 5) from national champions (it is not clear how and in what way), and each team will start the game in two groups. Ten participants, because they are the most popular faucet in the world, can expect busy income mainly from TV usage fees.
However, in addition to UEFA, the International Football Association (FIFA) has also expressed its concerns: Gianni Infantino, chairman of the sport’s global governing body, said: If such actions are taken, the players of the separated teams will not be able to participate in the World Cup.
