Real Madrid, Barça and Atleti, among those registered for the Superliga

The war is already at the gates of UEFA. When its executive committee meets this Monday to approve the new format of the Champions League, in which it will go from 32 to 36 teams in the 2024-2027 triennium, the Super League enters the scene. As advanced The Times and complete the main media There are already twelve teams registered in this mammoth competition, six of them belonging to the Premier League: Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City and Liverpool. I mean, the whole Big-Six. The rest of the teams involved are Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Atlético de Madrid, Inter de Milan, Milan and Juventus.

While The Athletic add that Bayern Munich and PSG uncheck themselves from the Super League. The Parisian group, according to a source consulted by this last medium, affirms “stay true to UEFA traditions”At the same time, they consider it disrespectful to be part of the project at this very moment. Just as they consider that 'minor' teams such as Atalanta, Ajax or Leicester should have their chance.

The Super League is a direct challenge to the intentions of UEFA and FIFA, which have already made it clear that all teams that participate in competitions not annealed by both organizations, as would be the case of this kind of football NBA, would be sanctioned to take part in tournaments such as European Cups and World Cups. Therefore, if it goes ahead, according to the aforementioned media, the dispute could end in court.

One of UEFA's greatest victories has been to gain the support of the ECA (European Club Association), chaired by Andrea Agnelli., also the top leader of Juventus. However, this new information, on the eve of the announcement of the new Champions League, shakes the footballing planet again. The main precursors of the Super League are Real Madrid and Manchester United. In fact, it was Florentino Pérez himself who presented the project to Gianni Infantino, FIFA president, and to Agnelli himself last January.


Since This information has reached the ears of other members of the ECA who are in favor of the new Champions format have tried to contact Agnelli, but according to sources consulted by The Times, the Italian “has disappeared”. If finally carried out, the Super League would be made up of 15 founding teams, to which another five would be added that would qualify per season. Resulting in this way 20 sets that would be divided into two groups of 10.

The income for all of them would be huge, reaching up to 350 million euros for joining it. What's more, the founders could enjoy an initial “infrastructure fund” of 3.5 billion euros to cover expenses in facilities, stadiums and face losses. Just as the television contracts would also favor these 15 teams that would be fixed in the competition. The television distribution would be as follows: 32.5% among the founders; another 32.5% among the other five teams; 20% would depend on the merits in the tournament; and the remaining 15% would be a commercial participation “based on club knowledge”.

This possibility has the support of clubs such as Juventus, whose president, Andrea Agnelli, is also in charge of the European Club Association (ECA), while it was harshly criticized, among others, by the president of the Spanish League, Javier Tebas.
