Andrea Agnelli, Juventus President and Vice President of the Premier League, said that we are meeting at a crucial moment in reforming European competition. Joel Glaser (Manchester United) became the second vice president. According to his appointment, “Superliga will open a new chapter in European football by providing more financial support for all footballs.” Florentino, Who rules Real Madrid is elected president.
The club also revealed Official website And the Superliga format: It will be composed of 15 founding clubs that will have a permanent place in the game, and five other teams that can be promoted to the Superliga-it has not yet been determined what the qualifiers will look like (and these teams will be the only ones at risk of falling team).
The game will take place in the middle of the week-all teams should stay in their home league. However, it is not yet known whether such a solution is feasible: UEFA and the football federations and leagues of England, Italy and Spain have previously issued statements threatening to threaten the founding clubs of the Chinese Super League with the most severe penalties. . Every club participating in the Super League will not only be excluded from Europe, but also from national competitions. Any football player of such a club can be excluded from international competitions. As added by Gazzetta dello Sport, UEFA is considering prosecuting “refugee clubs” with a total value of 50 to 60 billion euros >>
FIFA opposed these plans in an official statement, while calling for “peaceful and constructive dialogue” between parties to the conflict. ECA (European Club Association) also issued a statement on this matter, strongly condemning these plans. Interestingly, at the time of the statement, the head of ECA was Andrea Agnelli, one of the key figures behind the Super League. The President of Juventus resigned from this position and resigned from the executive committee (Juventus also left ECA).
Superliga will start in August (it is not known when the first edition will start), and the teams will be divided into two groups, each with 10 teams. Everyone will play two games (home + away), and the best three teams will advance to the quarterfinals. The fourth and fifth-placed teams will enter the playoffs (match and rematch) in the other two places of the quarterfinals. There will be matches and rematches in 1/4 and 1/2, and the final will be a match on a neutral basis. Similar games will be created for women’s teams.

According to media reports, all of them have refused to participate in the project so far, hoping to continue using the current system. -Football is for everyone-PSG’s anonymous source reported that the attitude of the French champion was praised by President Emmanuel Macron.
-DFL violates any concept of the Super League. The economic interests of some clubs from England, Spain and Italy must not lead to the destruction of the existing structure of European football. It would be extremely irresponsible to irreversibly disrupt the national competition that underpins European football. Therefore, I strongly support the statement issued by UEFA and the football federations and leagues of England, Spain and Italy-the Bundesliga chairman Christian Seifert said in an official statement.
Everything shows that this is just the beginning of the war between the “rebellious” club and FIFA and UEFA. Interestingly, most fans strongly oppose the Super League, believing that “club owners do not respect tradition.” I have been a Manchester United fan for 40 years and I feel very sick of it. I’m the most disgusting to Manchester United and Liverpool-Gary Neville said in an emotional monologue, explaining why the rise of the Super League kills football >>
