Three days later, the majority of clubs had left the project almost stillborn. Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Juventus are the only ones to have stayed. Almost two years after its launch, the Super League has still not seen the light of day. But the founding members still hope to succeed in launching it. This, despite the loss of Andrea Agnelli, who has always pushed for this project to succeed. But the now ex-president of Juve is no longer there and he has other fish to fry, he who is under investigation in Italy.

A new version of the SL

Opposed to this project since always, the governing body of European football has seen the Advocate General of the European Court of Justice give him reason in this case. Reassured, UEFA even threatened rebellious clubs with sanctions. But that does not seem at all to frighten the teams which are campaigning for the launch of this Super League. This Tuesday, the daily The Team made new revelations about this project still carried by Florentino Pérez (Real Madrid) and Joan Laporta (FC Barcelona). Thus, we learn that the founding members are still working behind the scenes to finally get this project out of the box. The Team thus explains that the promoters of the Super League have worked on a new version.

While they were aiming for a closed league bringing together the biggest clubs at the start, which was not unanimous, they want to open this competition to more teams in Europe. The members of the SL have thus dredged around fifty clubs from twelve countries including the Netherlands, Portugal and Belgium. The objective of the Super League is to expand its area of ​​influence and to have more clubs on its side in order to have more weight. This new SL would be based on sporting merit and would put in place real financial fair play so that there is less inequality in football, especially with clubs owned by states. According to The Team, the members of the Super League are very confident and have had good feedback from the clubs approached. UEFA may not appreciate it too much as the project is well advanced.
