Super League gets a major breakthrough following Madrid court verdict

January 31, 2023 - 9:00 pm

Juventus and other European Super League protagonists have been handed a major boost in their fight against UEFA and FIFA.

The Bianconeri, alongside Barcelona and Real Madrid, continue to champion the idea and have refused to accept defeat.

Max Allegri’s side was led into the competition by its former president Andrea Agnelli and the current leadership has not clarified its position.

However, a report on Tuttomercatoweb reveals the Commercial Court of Madrid has ruled the protagonists can form a new competition and UEFA cannot kick them out of the Champions League.

The judgement reads:

“The principle of merit that informs competition law would be post-place.

“It is, therefore, possible to create independent and alternative competition because FIFA and UEFA cannot justify their anti-competitive behaviour as if they were the only custodians of certain European values, especially if this determines a monopoly that excludes and hinders a competitor’s initiative.

“It is an action that represents an abuse by those who hold a dominant position”.

Juve FC Says

This is a small win for the Super League clubs, but UEFA will fight back, and the protagonists must get more clubs on their side before forming a new competition.

If they cannot offer more money than what teams make from UEFA now, the idea will also struggle to survive.

However, we expect those pushing for its success to do the work required to make it happen.

    If you win and create a super league it will never rival eufa and it’s competitions, steeped in history and all clubs want to be in it. You can win in the courts all you want, all that matters is who’s watching, who’s playing and what the fans want to see, and creating resentment is not the best idea to make money, especially by doing it when you don’t focus on winning by having a coach interested in entertaining and making the product watchable. I can’t speak for Real and Barcelona but losing to Monza level of play is not popular, unless your Monza I guess

      You’re wrong to think that fans won’t support this. In fact I’d say you’re arrogant to believe the crooks at UEFA represent any sort of honor.

      Superleague going ahead is a slap in the face of the corrupt organisation that feeds into their own policies and those that stand to benefit from them. Give the money to those who deserve it and make it.

    I truly agree. I am a Juve fan from Australia. Juve have failed in house in recruitment of players only now they play younger players it should have happened 4 years ago. As per Super league i get Angelli plan but world wide feet talk and the fans everywhere are showing resentment towards his ideas i wish there to be a middle ground but all the other clubs pulled out because of the supporters. No Supporters no club. Covid no attendance how much did all clubs lose. Italy is showing its worse side on all facets of football 2 world cups no show so called money playing games it has to stop. Once the best league in the world we are now tinkering into Oblvion.

    I thought this was dead and buried. Where it belongs.
