Italy joins the trial before the European Court of Justice against the Super League promoted by Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus. As reported by ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’, the Government of Bel Paese sent the formal act, in extremis, a few hours before midnight today, when the deadline would have expired. The Italians, then, reinforce UEFA’s position towards the “rebel” clubs and join the majority of the countries of the European Union, as France and Spain had already done.

Today both the president of the Italian Football Federation, Gabriele Gravina (“I presented our position to the Government and I hope it takes a position today so that our country is not left out of those who support UEFA”) like that of the Olympic Committee, Giovanni Malagó (“The Government was very harsh against the Super League, it would be nonsense not to participate in the trial) They asked for the intervention of the Executive, which finally arrived this afternoon. A formal act that, for Italy, was also essential for its candidacy to host Euro 2028. According to ‘La Gazzetta’, the lack of support in the trial would have been “seriously considered” by UEFA.
