Following today’s confirmation by the European Court of Justice that “neither UEFA nor FIFA can impose sanctions on clubs that participate in alternative competitions,”

UEFA has issued a statement reiterating its position. The organization asserts that the ruling does not support or endorse the Super League, maintaining their steadfast stance on the matter.

The full statement reads: “UEFA takes note of the judgment delivered today by the ECJ in the European Super League case.

This ruling does not signify an endorsement or validation of the so-called’super league’; it rather underscores a pre-existing shortfall within UEFA’s pre-authorisation framework, a technical aspect that has already been acknowledged and addressed in June 2022. UEFA is confident in the robustness of its new rules, specifically that they comply with all relevant European laws and regulations.

UEFA remains resolute in its commitment to uphold the European football pyramid, ensuring that it continues to serve the broader interests of society. We will continue to shape the European sports model collectively with national associations, leagues, clubs, fans, players, coaches, EU institutions, governments and partners alike.

We trust that the solidarity-based European football pyramid that the fans and all stakeholders have declared as their irreplaceable model will be safeguarded against the threat of breakaways by European and national laws”.
