Chelsea was among the Premier League clubs to withdraw from the Super League plans on Tuesday. However, the remaining teams still want this breakaway competition to go through, claiming the status quo of European football needs changing.
Now the European Super League has released the following official statement;
“The European Super League is convinced that the current status quo of European football needs to change.
“We are proposing a new European competition because the existing system does not work. Our proposal is aimed at allowing the sport to evolve while generating resources and stability for the full football pyramid, including helping to overcome the financial difficulties experienced by the entire football community as a result of the pandemic. It would also provide materially enhanced solidarity payments to all football stakeholders.
“Despite the announced departure of the English clubs, forced to take such decisions due (to) the pressure out (put) on them, we are convinced our proposal is fully aligned with European law and regulations as was demonstrated today by a court decision to protect the Super League from third party actions.
“Given the current circumstances, we shall reconsider the most appropriate steps to reshape the project, always having in mind our goals of offering fans the best experience possible while enhancing solidarity payments for the entire football community.”
Meanwhile, all six Premier League clubs who were part of the project, including Chelsea, pulled out on Tuesday after a strong backlash from the football community.
