Uefa kill off threat of European Super League with 'historic' deal

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2019/02/06/uefa-kill-threat-european-super-league-historic-deal/?li_source=LI&li_medium=li-recommendation-widget

Uefa finally put to bed talks of a breakaway European Super League by announcing new legislation on Wednesday night to protect domestic top tiers until at least 2024.

The threat of a money-spinning competition involving the Premier League’s “Big Six” – Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur – resurfaced in November when messages between clubs were published during the Football Leaks scandal.

Uefa has now responded to the clandestine move by agreeing a new “memorandum of understanding” with the European Club Association. “Building on their close cooperation over the last 11 years, the memorandum outlines the strong willingness of Uefa and ECA to continue to work together with mutual trust and clarity of objectives to ensure the well-being and stability of European football,” Uefa said.

Aleksander Ceferin, who is likely to be re-elected as Uefa president on Thursday, added: “I am delighted that we have reached such an agreement and that we – as Europe’s football governing body – and European clubs will continue to work closely together to further promote, ­develop and shape the future of football across the continent.”

German magazine Der Spiegel had previously published confidential documents and emails alleging Real Madrid were working with consultants on a 16-team Super League to kick off in 2021 effectively replacing the Champions League and outside the control of Uefa.


The plan called for 11 clubs from Spain, England, Germany, Italy and France to get ownership stakes and risk-free Super League membership for 20 years, with five more clubs from those countries invited to play. The Fifa president Gianni Infantino confirmed football’s biggest names would be banned from the World Cup if they played in a breakaway European Super League.

On Wednesday night, the ECA chairman Andrea Agnelli, president of Juventus, described the new memorandum as “an important moment in the history of European football.”

Greg Clarke, the chairman of the Football Association, stands for election on Thursday as vice-president of the world governing body, Fifa. Clarke and Irish FA president David Martin are going head to head to replace ­David Gill in the £190,000-per-year role, which is reserved for the four British associations.

The vote takes place in Rome at the Uefa congress, where further talks are expected about Manchester City’s potential Champions League ban over the Football Leaks scandal. City could face the suspension under Finacial Fair Play rules over an alleged £60 million payments deception. City have ­responded by saying that “the ­attempt to damage the club’s reputation is organised and clear.”

The problem is that today the big six are the ones mentioned in the article, but they can change over time, in the eighties Everton would have been counted, and probably Newcastle in the nineties, who knows we might be talked of as a big six club in the 20's.

I hope they kill off the threat for good !

It would make the English game much worse and it would be difficult for us to attract quality players

The European Super League would get really dull very soon.
I got bored of the Champions League years ago.

That would be fantastic - just to hear the whining.

Bit of a shame really.

This could have actually been the critical mass that football needed to reach to reinvent itself and let the game get back to not just being about billions and billions of dollars.

For us, and other clubs of our ilk anyway.

If you could promise me ManU, Chelsea and Arsenal would eventually be pleading to be readmitted to the fourth tier of English football after the collapse of a EuroSL, I'd be all in favour of it

Re: Uefa kill off threat of European Super League with 'historic' deal
it must be pointed out that only "5" clubs from England were part of this breakaway Spurs were left with all the other nasty teams not worthy of such a grand group of clubs .

Get rid of them. Domestic leagues will be far better off without them.

In reality we already have a European Super League with the CL knock out stages having the same old teams year after predictable year.
