    3.6 million each, wow, that's a big hit ...not.
    That is **** all to those clubs, not even the price of buying a player.

    STATEMENT FROM BARCELONA, JUVENTUS AND REAL MADRID

    FC Barcelona, Juventus, and Real Madrid CF welcome today's Court's decision enforcing, with immediate effect, UEFA's obligation to unwind the actions taken against all European Super League founding clubs, including terminating the disciplinary proceedings against the undersigning three clubs and removing the penalties and restrictions imposed on the remaining nine founding clubs for them to avoid UEFA's disciplinary action.

    The Court backs the request made by the promoters of the European Super League, dismisses UEFA's appeal, and confirms its warning to UEFA that failure to comply with its ruling shall result in fines and potential criminal liability. The case will be assessed by the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg, which shall review UEFA's monopolistic position over European football.

    We have the duty to address the very serious issues facing football: UEFA has established itself as the sole regulator, exclusive operator, and unique owner of rights of European football competitions. This monopolistic position, in conflict of interest, is damaging football and its competitive balance. As shown by ample evidence, financial controls are inadequate, and they have been improperly enforced. Clubs participating in European competitions have the right to govern their own competitions.

    We are pleased that going forward we will no longer be subject to ongoing UEFA's threats. Our aim is to keep developing the Super League project in a constructive and cooperative manner, always counting on all football stakeholders: fans, players, coaches, clubs, leagues, and national and international associations. We are aware that there are elements of our proposal that should be reviewed and, of course, can be improved through dialogue and consensus. We remain confident in the success of a project that will be always compliant with European Union laws.

    Pleasing to know though that whilst some owners regard us fans as nuisances who can die when they want others describe us as stakeholders,

    Uefa has rejected the demands of a Madrid court to revoke its action against the 12 founding members of the European Super League and is confident of seeing off the legal challenge at the European Court of Justice.

    The judge in Madrid made an order on Friday stating that Uefa must publish on its website that it will drop all financial and sporting penalties. He also ordered Uefa to tell the Premier League and Italy’s FA to drop all action taken against the English and Italian clubs involved.

    A source close to the European governing body has told The Times there is no intention of carrying out the order and that its actions will be fully justified by the European court.

    Uefa is also unconcerned about reports that the ESL is now planning to revamp the breakaway competition so that it is not a closed tournament.

    “The Super League idea is dead,” said another source. “The fans killed it and there is not going to be a resurrection.”

    I wondered whether such action would be considered restraint of trade. Personally i couldn't care less what the big clubs do, i rarely watch the european games (except citys of course )

    Don't have an issue with this to be honest...





    Although they'll need to join at the bottom of the football league pyramid.


    Level 20...


    Probably the Stroud and District League Division Seven would be the most appropriate.


    Madrid's quite near to Stroud in the greater scheme of things.
