Super League: Four founding members obviously threatens MaximalTrafe
The Super League plans have smashed for the time being. For the four founding members, there could still be an aftermath. The failed creation of a Super League could obeyively serious consequences for four founding members. As ESPN wants to learn from its own sources, the club competitions of the UEFA could take place two seasons without the clubs that do not want to deflect.
Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus have described warnings from UEFA as "intolerable" and "unacceptable" as the three clubs continue to back a breakaway European Super League.
Spain's biggest two clubs and Italian outfit Juve are the only three remaining of the 12 European giants who signed up for the controversial project, with all others having withdrawn just days after the competition was announced last month.
UEFA on Friday stated that Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea, Milan, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid would not face Champions League or Europa League bans after pulling out of the proposed Super League.
'Big Six' set to follow Chelsea and allow fans in board meetings
EXCLUSIVE BY MIKE KEEGAN: Earlier this week the west London outfit announced fans would be invited to boardroom summits from July 1 to ensure 'supporter sentiment' is considered.Earlier this week the west London outfit announced that, in the wake of the collapsed European Super League and the furore it triggered, supporters would be invited to boardroom summits from July 1 to ensure 'supporter sentiment' is considered in decision-making.
The governing body warned that the three remaining rebel clubs could be sanctioned due to their unwavering stance.
UEFA stated: "UEFA has reserved all rights to take whatever action it deems appropriate against those clubs that have so far refused to renounce the so-called 'Super League'. The matter will promptly be referred to the competent UEFA disciplinary bodies."
Barca, Madrid and Juve released a joint statement on Saturday to make it clear they are not happy with UEFA's actions.
The statement said: "The founding clubs have suffered, and continue to suffer, unacceptable third-party pressures, threats, and offenses to abandon the project and therefore desist from their right and duty to provide solutions to the football ecosystem via concrete proposals and constructive dialogue.
Government 'in talks over moving Champions League final to England'
The UK Government is in talks with UEFA over moving the Champions League final between Chelsea and Manchester City to England, according to Transport Secretary Grant Shapps. The European showpiece final was set to take place in Istanbul on May 29, but the government placed Turkey on the UK's 'red list' group of countries - meaning anyone visiting the country would have to quarantine for 10 days in a hotel on their return. And Transport Secretary Grant Shapps confirmed the government are in talks to bring the final to England, so players and fans can both attend the fixture.
"This is intolerable under the rule of law and tribunals have already ruled in favour of the Super League proposal, ordering FIFA and UEFA to, either directly or through their affiliated bodies, refrain from taking any action which may hinder this initiative in any way while court proceedings are pending."
The three clubs defended the Super League proposal by stating that "structural reforms are vital to ensure our sport remains appealing and survives in the long-term".
They added that the founding clubs agreed that the new competition would only take place if it was "recognised by UEFA and/or FIFA or if, in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, it was deemed to be a competition duly compatible for all purposes with the continuity of the founding clubs in their respective domestic competitions".
Juve, Barca and Madrid claim the Super League provided "a unique opportunity to offer fans around the world the best possible show and to reinforce global interest in the sport".
The trio of clubs say they are "ready to reconsider the proposed approach" but it would be "highly irresponsible" if they abandoned a mission to "provide effective and sustainable answers to the existential questions that threaten the football industry".
