The European Super League project was one of the lowest in football in 2021. The tough competition involving only 20 European clubs, was the brainchild of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli.
Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham, AC Milan, Inter Milan, and ten other participating teams of the Super League, and Juve and Real Madrid.
The tournament would be contested between 15 ‘established members’ of the competition and the five qualifying teams were divided into two of ten teams in a Round-Robin manner.
However, the project crashed and burned even before it started as fans unleashed huge protests against the rebel league, forcing clubs to back off. Premier League teams came out first and others followed.
But Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus are still adamant about naming and re-launching the competition as competitors in the UEFA Champions League and Europa League.
The Financial Times (h / t SPORT) now reports that the management of the three teams Perez (Real Madrid), Agnelli (Juventus), and Barcelona president Joan Laporta will meet in the coming days as they look to restore the job. community in 2022.
The report states that the three had already met in August last year to discuss the next steps in their vision. Now, they are planning further talks as they look to re-launch the project while avoiding legal issues against UEFA and other rival football associations.
Therefore, the European Super League project may once again bring its bad head back in the new year, with possible variations in the original proposed format. Fans, however, are less likely to be moved, but it seems Perez & co. they are always stubborn about their project.
