The International Football Federation (FIFA) disapproves of plans to organize a European Football Super League because the competition goes beyond international football.
“In this context, FIFA can only express its disapproval of the” European separatist league “, which is outside the international football structures,” – said in a statement by FIFA, which was quoted by Reuters on April 19.
Earlier it was reported that the British clubs Tottenham, Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal, Spanish Atletico, Barcelona and Real, as well as Italian Milan, Inter and Juventus.
The tournament is seen as an alternative to European competition under the auspices of UEFA. According to the clubs, they aim to improve the quality and intensity of existing European competitions, and the solutions that were proposed following negotiations with stakeholders regarding the future format of European competitions “do not solve fundamental problems.”
On April 18, the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), the Football Association of England (The FA) and the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) issued a joint statement condemning the creation of the European Super League. They threatened that they would use all available means to prevent its formation.
According to the statement, clubs joining the Super League will be banned from participating in other competitions at the national, European or global level.
