Manchester United part-owner Joel Glazer says ‘Super League opens a new chapter for European football by uniting world’s greatest clubs’. Joel Glazer, who has also been appointed as the vice-chairman of the Super League insists that the new league will ensure increased financial support for the wider football pyramid.
Speaking on the creation of the Super League, Joel Glazer said: “By bringing together the world’s greatest clubs and players to play each other throughout the season, the Super League will open a new chapter for European football, ensuring world-class competition and facilities, and increased financial support for the wider football pyramid.”
The United part-owner has been appointed as a vice-chairman of the Super League and holds a lot of influence as a result. Man United has also participated in the league as its founding member and might face heavy bans from UEFA and the Premier League as a result.
The Super League, meanwhile, is tipped to start from next season onwards and will be a 20-team competition, where 2 separate groups of 10 teams are made and later a knockout phase is played (like the Champions League) to serve as a competition as Europe’s top competition.
